"I think his potential is huge", Southgate said.

"I had to prove people wrong throughout my career and I love proving to myself I can do it", he said. We just don't know yet. "The games that everybody can watch, they are just an opportunity to showcase that and show everybody how far we've really come", he said. Kane, speaking to reporters as quoted by FourFourTwo, revealed what the Argentine had texted him post-game.

He added: "I probably wouldn't have played Dele Alli in that [Tunisia] game and I wouldn't have been fussed about playing him against Panama".

"Although you've not done it yet, you feel like you understand what to expect and I feel that is definitely needed".

Panama are bottom of the group on goal difference and need a positive result against England in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday to retain any hope of progressing to the knockout stages.

"You want a major goalscorer, a striker that's going to take chances, but we've got that in abundance around the team with Vards, Welbs (Danny Welbeck) and the kid Rashford".

"There are always things (to improve)", he told reports (via Football365).
