Harry Kane did it again for England as the Three Lions just about were deserving winners against Tunisia in their first World Cup match in Russia.

The captain peeled off from a corner in stoppage time to nod in a header for the winning goal after he had opened the scoring in the 11th minute of the game.

Tunisia, though, did pretty well and were awarded a penalty, which was converted. England did try to batter the African side and they were the better team, so the result was deserved. However, one player did catch the eye of a number of fans and that was Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

The Chelsea youngster came on in the 80th minute for Dele Alli and had some nice touches to show.

Twitter was certainly pleased by the cameo from the youngster, who was on loan last season at Crystal Palace, and here are some of the best reactions to the 22-year-old’s cameo.
