  • An average 13.7 million viewers saw the team beat Tunisia 2-1

Kane scored twice, including a stoppage-time header, as England went second in Group G behind Belgium on goal difference.

Mr Nourse, who lives in Allington and has just finished sixth form at St Simon Stock Catholic School, said: "The atmosphere was wonderful, the scenes on both of the goals were unbelievable".

They got an early goal through Harry Kane but it should have been more.

Fabian Delph could be an option having played at left-back for Manchester City last season but Rose would be more suited to England's current system.

"I used to go to the park with my dad and brother to practice when I was a child and my dad instilled the mentality in me to keep going and never give up, even when things don't go your way", says Kane.

"It was a nervous affair", said Dave Mills from Coventry, a former soldier who had taken a break from walking around the world for charity to see the match.

England would possibly benefit from starting a natural striker alongside Kane - someone such as Rashford or Vardy - instead of sticking with three players who like to take-up the same positions.

"There was a lot more than I first thought", Kane added.

In fact, qualification could be assured in the team's next game against Panama, leaving the clash with Belgium as a potential decider for the top spot in the group. Tunisia was a tough game for us but we proved to ourselves we can step up in the big moment.

"It looked like it could be one of them nights again, but we've got great togetherness as I've said before".

"England are a big team with very good players but we will try to win". For him, making a difference need not be restricted just to the football field but also in the lives of others who are not so privileged. "Poch texted me and after the game as well - he sent a lot of love hearts and said: 'Come on England!'" he said.

Tottenham midfielder Alli appeared to be carry a thigh problem in the first half but lasted until the 80th minute when Loftus-Cheek replaced him.

An extra three millions requests were made to stream the match online on BBC iPlayer.
