Kane: Why England is the team to beat in Russian Federation

Harry Kane praised for response to Ben Williams

GETTY TWITTER HEARTWARMING Harry Kane paid tribute to Ben Williams on Twitter

Southgate spent time in the United States at the start of the year, watching the Super Bowl but also National Basketball Association games in a bid to discover how teams got themselves into space near the basket via choreographed moves and plays.

His father Sam has revealed his son is refusing to take his England kit off and among his first words were "Harry Kane" - and now the England captain has responded to his plight.

Ironically, Alli says he felt he did better with the less familiar tasks than with his usual forte, making penetrating runs and providing a threat in the box.

"I know the fans here are enjoying it", Kane said. But I'm my own biggest critic.

"As players, as a professional, we know our job on and off the pitch".

Harry Maguire really has taken the footballing world by storm with his performances at the World Cup.

Former navy diver dies during Thailand cave rescue effort
At 10am local time, 18 divers went into the cave to bring out the boys - including 13 worldwide divers and five Thai Navy Seals. A major concern of the rescuers is that oxygen levels in their safe space could fall dangerously low.

The 25-year-old defender has been solid and reliable in defence, and the former Sheffield United and Hull City star also scored against Sweden in the quarter-final tie.

He said: "I didn't feel nervous or anything like that".

"But now, where we are sitting and with the way the draw has panned out, I believe we can go all the way, without question".

"So to be here, to be part of it, I'm so proud". "I was in the right positions, so when it's like that you have to make sure you are doing the basics right". Well it's not QUITE Southgate - but Southgate is REASONABLY equidistant between the two places that helped mould the England manager we now all love to sing reworked Atomic Kitten songs about. That's one of his big things.

Following the forward's reply, Ben's father, Sam Williams, told ITV News: "When we saw the message from Harry Kane - that's what this has been all about, to get Ben's favourite player to give him a shout out".

"To inspire kids watching this tournament is wonderful because I was one of those kids growing up who wanted to play for England". We don't want to go away. The first time in the tournament England had kept a clean sheet.
