You look at the score and think this game was closer than expected. England was supposed to win. When you look at the storyline to the game, you will realize the Queen was sweating this one out! England was lucky to receive a stoppage time corner that found Harry Kane wide open near the backside to score on a header. After it looked like it was going to be a blowout for England early and Tunisia’s starting goalkeeper was knocked out with an apparent shoulder injury, England was not able to connect again until those final minutes. The seemed to go into a shell and were not as crisp as they looked in the early part of the game.
In the first 5-10 minutes, you thought this could be England’s year to go deep into the tournament. Then, 20 minutes in, they just seemed to lose that second gear!

Was invisible at times.
Harry Kane (10)
Man of the Match. He was in the right place at the right time twice in this one to point in easy, undefended touches! But that's what great players find a way to do!
