Lingard Lights up Russia as England Qualify for the Round of 16

On Sunday, England put six - yes, six goals - past Panama to seal qualification to the next round in a manner they have arguably never done before at the grandest of stages. It was a blend of contrasts throughout.  For it was reticent, yet an impressively flamboyant display at times.

Five big decisions Gareth Southgate has got right

Five big decisions Gareth Southgate has got right

England boss Gareth Southgate has defied expectations since taking over as national team boss. The former Middlesbrough and England Under 21 manager has done much more than ‘steady the ship’ since Sam Allardyce’s ill-fated short stint came to an end and is rightly earning plaudits for his stewardship as the World Cup approaches.
