OK, it is not quite virgin ground for England, but getting off to a winning start in a major tournament is something of a rarity for the 1966 World Cup winners. His header led to Harry Kane's goal but a swing and a miss in the 39 minute was not his best effort on goal.

England were dominating but struggling to create anything of note.
When England get off to a bad start, misery seems to infect the whole squad, and that has been the sorry tale of recent tournaments, so Kane's double in Volgograd has enabled them to break the sequence of failure. Both times, the referee decided against punishing the culprits.
Despite it all, Kane remained patient and delivered in the first minute of stoppage time.
A late corner gave them their chance and a flick-on from the adventurous Harry Maguire was seized upon by Kane who flashed a header past the Tunisian keeper, Ben Mustapha, a first-half substitute for Mouez Hassen.
Chances to regain the advantage were squandered. Harry's a top, top striker. "The control from the back with the ball".
The Spurs striker - who scored a stoppage-time victor for the first time in a World Cup match - could have won by a more comfortable margin.
Some thought the responsibility of being captain would be too heavy for him to carry. He's also scored eight goals in the six games in which he has worn the armband for England. John Stones met Ashley Young's corner with a great header, and even though goalkeeper Hassen made an excellent save to claw it out the ball fell to the feet of Kane who slotted home from just three yards out.
As expected, England clearly showed their talent over their opponents early in the game. Next up for Tunisia is Belgium on Saturday, while England takes on Panama on Sunday.

Alli had the first chance of the second half six minutes after the restart as his header was held by Ben Mustapha. These are not half chances, these are very, very good chances that we should be putting in the back of the net".
As far as I understand, Liverpool have made a bid. "I love this club but we need to see how the club is going forward", he said. They talk today about Alisson, but for 78million (laughs), Liverpool can buy him.
No African side has played as many World Cup games without a win. "That first goal was going to be essential", said Martinez. We use the term "effectively" because Egypt hasn't been mathematically eliminated from Group A, but it's a near certainty.
