But in truth, it was a humbling experience for Panama against a side known to get nervous and slip up against less illustrious rivals on the big stage. The Panamanians will compete hard but eventually England should break them down and secure qualification for the knockout stages.

It's all very tight in Group H. Panama did great to qualify but they're out of their depth at this level.

England won't want another late victor to save them against Panama in trying to qualify the World Cup last-16 in today's action in Russian Federation. Harry Kane's brilliance continues as he has proven both for Spurs and England that he can score any which way.

Lingard made it 3-0 in the 36th minute with a attractive strike from just outside the area before Stones nodded in his second and England's fourth from a cleverly worked free kick routine.

The way they are playing is reminiscent of how we used to play in our day with Gilly, Matthew Hayden and Ricky Ponting at the top. Alex Hales is known for hitting big scores at Trent Bridge and eased into the contest as soon as he walked from the crease.

The in-form Tottenham striker bagged his third after a 61st-minute shot by Ruben Loftus-Cheek hit his foot and bounced over despairing Panama goalkeeper Jaime Penedo. Don't be surprised if he starts this match in place of Alli or Lingard.

They followed this up with two successive draws against Denmark and Uruguay and finished their group in the 2nd spot, just 2 points below Denmark.

While Japan and Senegal, who won their first matches, meet in Ekaterinburg, favourites Poland and Colombia, who were stunned in their tournament openers, will battle it out in Kazan. If this game produces a victor then one of the knockout slots in this group will be locked down but a draw seems quite possible.

Key player: Sadio Mane (Liverpool) - With his blistering pace, Mane has been every bit as effective for Senegal as he has for Liverpool. "He contributes a lot to the team and hopefully he can have a performance (against Senegal) like the one he gave against Colombia". In Mane, the Africans have a player who can win a match on his own. There's not much to separate both sides, a moment of inspiration or madness is likely to decide the outcome. Based on their opening match against Poland, those prognostications appear accurate.

"I'm an experienced player, I'm confident and know what we have to do for the next game against Senegal", he added.

May urges unity on Brexit strategy vote
Speaking on BBC radio on Tuesday morning, Mr Davis said a meaningful vote would not lead to Britain staying in the EU. He said Mrs May promised to table amendments in the House of Lords that will address their concerns.

"One thing I am sure about is that we will not lack heart on Sunday".

Group H had always been an evenly balanced group in terms of relative ability but few would have expected Japan to have beaten this Colombian side. Whoever loses is out of the tournament. Draw or a win for Colombia.

Glik, formerly Torino's captain, was ruled out of Poland's first match after injuring his shoulder at practice but has now been declared fit.

We've nearly reached the final round of group games at the 2018 World Cup but in groups G and H, there's still plenty to be decided.

The resulting 10-man team was able to equalise after Shinji Kagawa scored a penalty but were unable to keep out a late goal by Yuya Osako in the 73rd minute. He'll need to step up here.
