Harry Kane leads record-breaking England half in Panama demolition

England secures spot in World Cup round of 16 with win over Panama

The English skipper has had a wondrous run in the world cup and after scoring a brace for the Three Lions in their opener earlier this week, he has registered another record under his name.

Captain Harry Kane grabbed a hat-trick as England scored six goals in a World Cup finals game for the first time in their history. The goal was an example of Kane's precision and clinical acumen.

Despite the result, England started slowly and it was Panama who should have scored first in the fifth minute when Anibal Godoy blasted high and wide after the Central Americans carved open England's defence.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku both have four goals apiece and can be backed at [4.4] and [6.4] respectively, while Spain's Diego Costa (three goals) is available to back at [7.8].

"I'm able to maintain that focus which I'm very happy about", he said. "We had fun out there", said current tournament top scorer Kane, calling his third "one of the luckiest goals of my life".

The 24-year-old has made no secret of his desire to establish his reputation alongside players such as Ronaldo and Lionel Messi at this tournament.

With the country's most one-sided World Cup victory, England advanced to the last 16 with a game by spare.

With a victory, England will join Belgium as the second and final team in Group G to advance to the knockout stage.

From there Belgium went on to win the match comfortably, but it certainly was not routine for the side, and numerous Belgium faithful remain unconvinced by manager Martinez, though Lampard believes if he can get his tactics right, then they will be a real threat this summer.

"He just can't catch a break at the moment, I think his confidence is down", added Runtwe.

"If it's going to be 10-0 and Raheem Sterling doesn't score, then he's got selection issues", said Barrie.

England took the lead in the eighth minute when John Stones powered home a header from a Kieran Trippier corner, held up by the referee because of wrestling and pushing by the Panamanians, something which was set to become a theme of the match.

All right Gary, let's not get too carried away.
