"So proud"- Sheffield United fans react to Harry Maguire’s heroic England performance

Tunisia Nabil Maaloul Dele Alli England EURO 2016

Out in Volgograd, where the game took place, 2,000 or so hardy supporters erupted into ecstasy.

"I think we deserved the win", he said.

All in good spirits no doubt but there's nothing like the World Cup for fanning the flames even if we're not involved.

One win inspires most Englishmen to conclude that an opening win in Group G means the rest of the world will be quaking in their boots at the prospect of taking on Harry Maguire, Jesse Lingard and the rest of Southgate's "dream team".

Russian media said authorities used planes in the months before the game to spray the area around the stadium, which is next to the massive Volga river, with a special substance created to kill off the bugs.

"I did not feel the midges because I was so focused on the team, on the game", Tunisia's Nabil Maaloul said. You have five minutes. You're supposed to enjoy it.

"I've seen a couple of them and they make me look a bit chubby if I'm totally honest with you".

A second wrote: "Thank god Ferdinand and Lampard were on last night's coverage as all Shearer and Lineker wanted to do was whinge about the referee non-stop, at least the lads tried to bring other aspects of the game in to the discussion".

Vardy, who has scored seven goals in 22 appearances, was poor in the final warm-up game against Costa Rica and he has only hit two in 11 games for Southgate.

Another user added: "We totally dominated the second half and the pressure eventually paid off". Between them, they have played 78 games for England, but have delivered a combined total of just five goals.
