Tunisia vs England: Kane double gives England victory over Tunisia

GETTYTottenham transfer news Dele Alli will be next to sign a contract

But after deciding last week to make the trip, he said he had been "blown away" by the welcome from the locals in Volgograd, where England will play Tunisia in their World Cup opener on Monday.

Kane had put England ahead in the 11th minute with a strike from close range after Tunisia goalkeeper Moez Hassen had acrobatically saved a powerful header from John Stones.

After struggling to break down the resilient north Africans, England finally found a way through the massed defensive ranks when Kane swivelled to head home in added time.

He said: "Obviously Russian soldiers that were killed in the great battle - it means a lot to them, it means a lot to us".

"There were a lot of decisions against us and maybe there was a bit of justice at the end".

England begin their World Cup campaign at a time when relations between Moscow and London are at a post-Cold War low with the two countries at odds over Ukraine, Syria and the poisoning of a former Russian spy in England with a military grade nerve agent in March.

And she added: "Given the enormous suffering of Volgograd and the pivotal part it played in the route towards victory I think it's only fitting that the 2018 World Cup should have Volgograd as one of its host cities, after all Volgograd today plays host to people from all over the world including Great Britain, who are here in peace and with a common objective". "We kept fighting and got the late goal and a big win", England midfielder Jordan Henderson said.

"When I got off the plane I was still a little bit nervous but as soon as I got into town and walking down in the fan fest, people coming up hugging you, taking photographs".

Russian media said authorities used planes in the months before the game to spray the area around the stadium, which is next to the massive Volga river, with a special substance created to kill them off, but the effort was only partially successful.

Nearly two million people lost their lives during the six-month siege of the city and, with relations between Russian Federation and the United Kingdom now strained, Southgate said England's trip offers a chance of perspective.

"I think we deserved the win", he said.

"We had total control of the game in the second half and we stayed patient".
