"I know that we are young and you can say that we are inexperienced but I don't feel inexperienced going into the tournament, and you still feel like you understand what to expect".

Picked in the England side to score goals, Harry Kane did exactly that against Tunisia in England's World Cup opener.

"The mood around the camp is a lot calmer from what I can remember of the last tournament but I think that's to be expected", Rashford said at England's Repino World Cup base.

"The games that everybody can watch, all it is as an opportunity for us to showcase that and show everyone how far we've really come". We just don't know yet.

"If I'm being honest - and I'm one of his biggest fans - I thought he was poor", he told Sky Sports Super 6.

If Alli is not fit enough to play the second group game, Ruben Loftus-Cheek is likely to replace him in one of the two advanced midfield positions in front of Jordan Henderson.

"It doesn't matter about age or experience - if we have that togetherness we can all drag each other through".

According to figures released by world governing body FIFA, Brazil's opening match against Switzerland drew in a total of 55.89 million people - higher than any game played in 2014 when Brazil hosted the World Cup.

The Manchester United forward replaced Raheem Sterling in the 68th minute. "I said before I was so excited to be at a World Cup and it is about proving a point".

"We are just trying to create something new at the moment".

How many goals has Harry Kane scored for England?

England now move on to Nizhny Novgorod, east of Moscow, where they face Panama on Sunday, but Robson believes Gareth Southgate's team are already over the toughest hurdle of the group stage.

"That will continue to happen now throughout the tournament, I'll have to keep doing that sort of recovery and stuff in order to stay in shape for the games".

"They need Harry Kane to hold the ball up and bring other players into the game and I don't think he did that, but I'm thinking more towards the knockout stages now".

"Football is like that - you always have to impose yourself, you have to mark out your territory", he said.
