Captain Kane Scored Three as England coasts past Panama

England scored 6 against first time world cup participants Panama in their World Cup Group G clash to secure a place in the last 16.

Fans in the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium were treated to a one sided yet goal frenzy encounter as England scored 6 past Panama, thus securing their place in the last 16. England still have one match left in the group stage against Belgium in a match being titled as the final for first place in Group G. Both England and Belgium have 9 points each having won their opening matches, respectively.  England currently sit at top of the table due to a better goal difference.

 Manchester City defender John Stones opened the scoring for England in the 8th minute as he lashed on to a free header, followed by a thumping penalty in the top corner by England captain Harry Kane. Following a brief period of play Manchester United mid fielder  Jesse Lingard scored a beautiful goal from out side the box, which is being touted as a contender for the goal of the tournament. John Stones extended the lead to 4 with his second goal of the match when Manchester City team mate Raheem Sterling failed to convert a free scoring chance which rebounded to stones who mercilessly headed it in. The first half ended with Harry Kane dispatching another penalty in the top corner increasing the lead to 5, representing the dominance of the English team.

The second half in comparison to the first was a silent affair, with Harry Kane completing his hattrick and also becoming the top scorer of the World Cup with 5 goals when he deflected Loftus cheeks driven shot in the goal. There was little joy for the Panama players and fans when Felipe Baloy scored Panamas first ever goal in the World Cup.  

In terms of record making, this match was the first time since 1966 that England scored 4 or more goals in a World Cup match, and subsequently Harry Kane becoming the first England player to score a hat-trick for the team since Geoff Hursts hat-trick in the 1966 World Cup.
