England win pulls bigger TV audience than Royal Wedding

Gareth Southgate eager to make England proud but is well aware of what lies ahead in 2018 World Cup

He has a lot of lads in the squad. I have been itching to get out there and showcase my talent. He is not just my boss, he's my mate ... he's the manager but he's a friend as well.

However, in today's society where there are quite literally hundreds of channels (most of them terrible) to choose from, and the freedom to watch things whenever you like via various technology, the BBC figures are testament to how overwhelmingly powerful football is in the UK. "It is nice to have that kind of relationship with him".

Kane's confidence will be a boost to England boss Gareth Southgate, who has taken a vibrant but relatively inexperienced squad to Russian Federation. I don't think he did that. "I am so excited to be here, but it is about proving a point".

"I think that only puts us in good stead for this tournament and future tournaments".

The goal was Kane's second of the match giving England a win it probably deserved after dominating the majority of the clash. They got an early goal through Harry Kane but it should have been more.

On the eve of England's opening game, Kane, 24, had confidently stated his ambition to match Ronaldo's hat-trick, scored in Portugal's first World Cup match against Spain, and made clear the belief he could win the Golden Boot against the greatest strikers on the planet.

A 2018 FIFA World Cup star has admitted that he has set himself a target of emulating the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. The challenge is there. You can't aim low.

Can you spot yourself among the fans cheering England on from Millennium Square? They're going to need Kane to be at his best once again if they want to top the group. "The only way to do that is to perform on the big stage, in the big moments".

Bryan Robson has warned that England can not afford to become over-reliant on Harry Kane at the World Cup.

The youngster is more of a poacher than anything else and poachers tend to do better in two striker formations so the Tottenham's striker's link-up play should help him tenfold.

Rashford's chances could be boosted by an injury to Alli, who will undergo a scan on Tuesday on the thigh injury he sustained in Volgograd.

"So, I would rather come here and attack it, give it everything, score goals, and if we go out, we go out".

"The key is always to believe".

The Source Bar was one of a number of venues across the county which broadcast the game on a huge screen.
