England fan 'blown away' by warm welcome to Russian Federation

GETTYTottenham transfer news Dele Alli will be next to sign a contract it's been claimed

Southgate may have chose to make changes next time out any way, with England having made the winning start they were so desperate for.

AVAR2 - The AVAR2′s role is to look at the TV programme feed (so what we see when we're watching a match live) and to help factor any angles caught by this feed into the decision making.

After a rocky start, and a couple of strong penalty claims by Kane, Tunisia's defensive wall seemed increasingly comfortable as England failed to carve a way though.

"If we were to get a draw it would have been an excellent result for us".

England's dramatic win over Tunisia on Monday had its fair share of VAR controversy, with England being denied what appeared to be two certain penalties as Harry Kane was dragged down in the box.

"But in the weeks coming up to the World Cup I was chatting to my Russian hosts and they've all been messaging each other and they said "don't worry Billy, you're going to have a great time, there's no problems here, it'll be fantastic".

"It would have been so hard for them if they didn't get the win".

That's what I am most happy with'.

"But we recovered from a harsh decision and kept our composure, which pleased me".

When asked whether he was aware that Russians thought his name was a play on words, as it sounds like the word "hurricane", the Tottenham striker laughed: "I had no idea about that!".

Tunisia need a new game-plan if they are to avoid their usual fate of falling at the first hurdle of a World Cup.

"I think what this (wreath laying) demonstrates more than anything is that the enduring nature of the relationship between the United Kingdom and Volgograd outweighs any political ups and downs", Skoll said.

"I think there's a lot more training and education to be done because it should not be in this tournament". I tried to run at a few corners and just couldn't move.

"In terms of Harry, if he doesn't score tonight I'm sitting answering questions about his ability to score goals in tournament football". In recent years the first game's always been hard.

But Colombian referee Wilmar Roldan waved away England's appeals and the VAR officials also failed to take action.

Aleksandar Prijovic was then booked after catching Johnny Acosta in the face with his hand following another look at replays.

Maaloul lauded Tunisia, who are playing in their fifth World Cup finals but have never progressed past the group stage.
