Kane, who is one of the best strikers in the world, was in superb form for England against Panama in their second World Cup group game on Sunday afternoon.

John Stones pitched in with two from defense, Jesse Lingard struck a beautifully curled goal, and captain dependable Harry Kane bagged a hat-trick, although he would have known little about the third which clipped the back of his heel.

The Tottenham striker bagged his third after a 61st minute shot by Ruben Loftus-Cheek hit his foot and bounced in.

Kane, substituted to an ovation from the almost 2,500 England fans, was the third England player to score a hat-trick at a World Cup following Geoff Hurst in the 1966 final and Gary Lineker against Poland in the 1986 tournament. "It's been really good, we've been taken care of in Russian Federation", he added.

A line of uniformed officers moved in just after midnight to separate the two sets of fans, while a squad in riot gear, which was on standby in a dark alleyway nearby, stood down as fans started to filter away on their own.

Panama's equal-sized army of red-shirted fans danced and cheered on the "Canaleros" (Canalmen) to the end.

The English sang "football's coming home" in response to Panama's "ole, ole, ole". "They are architecturally handsome", Southgate said.

Lingard's solid form for Manchester United earned him a call-up to the England World Cup squad and he started the Three Lions' opener in Russian Federation against Tunisia last week. "What we did was to try to avoid a bigger catastrophe in the second half".

In other action, Japan and Senegal will go head-to-head in Group H action after they both picked up victories in their opening games.
