Before Monday, he had not scored a goal at a major global finals, but he has put that right now, and in some style.
Mauricio Pochettino has been showing support to Tottenham striker Harry Kane during his World Cup campaign with England. He has made one hell of a start. Now, he's the first Leicester City player to represent the country at the World Cup since Gordon Banks, England's great goalkeeper during its one and only triumph in 1966. No one would have objected if they had been three or four goals up at half-time.
Kane rescued England with his late strike.
Kane was also at the centre of another of the game's major talking points when he was twice grappled to the floor inside the Tunisia area, with referee Wilmar Roldan neglecting to point to the spot despite penalising Kyle Walker for a seemingly lesser offence earlier in the contest.

"You can say that but, like I said before, we already know that within ourselves", Rashford said.
But after scoring two himself against Tunisia, Kane said: "To be the best player in the world you have to aim high and you can't aim low". The Manchester United forward has more energy tracking back and when he attacks he can go past people with the ball at his feet.
"I think if we have that togetherness we can all drag each other through".
Guessing that 1pm on Sunday for the Panama game might not get quite the same level - but England play Belgium next week on Thursday (28 June) at 7pm, so that could see another stunning TV audience. "I see him on the training field every day".
