       See how England fans celebrated around the UK at a number of fan parks as Gareth Southgate's side beat Pan

Kane became just the third England player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup game following Geoff Hurst in the 1966 final and Gary Lineker against Poland in the 1986 tournament.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker has scored the two goals in the first fixture, when they beat Tunisia 2-1 and now have five goals to his name.

The 6-1 scoreline was matched at [280.0] in the Correct Score 2 market, and England, with an equal goal difference to Belgium, can now be backed at [1.7] to win Group G (Belgium [2.3]).

His five goals took him to the top of the World Cup Golden Boot scoring chart with five goals in two games ahead of the four scored by Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku. Following the match he took part in a press conference where he spoke about his pride at scoring a hat-trick at the World Cup. We wouldn't swap him for anyone in terms of number nines.

"It's going well, there's still a long way to go, the most important thing is winning games", Kane said. "You don't get many opportunities to play in a game like that for England".

Playing from the off with an ease and trickery that contrasted with the stressed-looking England flops of recent worldwide tournaments, Gareth Southgate's team romped into a remarkable 5-0 lead at halftime.

"It's an incredible feeling [to score in a World Cup] and even better that we won and we're top of the table".

England and Belgium go into their Group G game on Thursday with identical records, meaning that fair play points could decide who is the victor of the group.

It's a World Cup and everyone is fighting for their lives.

"Very unusual because I think we probably at times played better the other night than we have done today, but today we were really ruthless in front of goal".

For England fans, the pain of losing to Iceland in the 2016 European Championships and a first-round exit without a win at the 2014 World Cup, was finally slipping away.

TSN soccer analyst Terry Dunfield said he thinks the English side could be primed to break out in a big way Sunday if they can keep the pressure and pace on Panama.

"We would want to keep momentum and keep progressing as a team", Southgate added.
