England-Tunisia live stream online, TV time

But Tunisia were gifted a way back into the game on 35 minutes, as Kyle Walker caught Ben Youssef with an arm in the England box and gave away a penalty.

But Harry Maguire won a header from a corner and Kane was on hand at the far post to nod in the victor before being mobbed by his ecstatic teammates.

Captain Harry Kane came to the rescue with two goals, the second a dramatic injury-time victor, as England began their World Cup Group G campaign with a stuttering 2-1 win over Tunisia on Monday (Jun 18).

England had started brightly in a blur of passing and movement and could have been two goals up inside the first four minutes.

And as the game looked to be petering out as a draw, Kane scored in injury-time from a corner to give England all three points. The way they played in the second half is not promising for the next few games in the tournament but in the first half, they created so many chances.

England were stung and should have regained the lead before half-time but Stones miskicked with the goal gaping and Lingard hit the post with a chip over Mustapha. At times their physical approach at defensive set pieces prompted English frustration but referee Wilmar Roldan was unmoved. "We kept our shape and "H" has done it again", he said, referring to Kane's double strike.

Harry Kane celebrates after scoring his team's second goal during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group G match between Tunisia and England at Volgograd Arena on June 18, 2018.

Nevertheless, Gareth Southgate's team will be expected to top Tunisia, which is playing in its first World Cup since 2006.

His high-pressure play did not allow Tunisia to get their own full-backs forward as they normally like to do in their 4-3-3 formation and left England's opponents often resorting to long balls and attacking against Ashley Young. "But even at 1-1, I was really proud of our performance".

Kane - who else? - popped up to break Tunisian hearts and the reaction of those in the BBC Sport studio was priceless.

"We deserved the win".
