Harry Kane’s celebration said everything you need to know about England’s unity

Harry Kane was swarmed by team-mates after scoring for England in their World Cup opener against Tunisia

As expected, football is coming home.

It took just 11 minutes for Harry Kane to confirm what we already knew.

England’s ‘Golden Generation’ of Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and co were undoubtedly more talented than the current crop.

But every time it came to a major tournament they were crippled by cliques and club rivalries.

On the evidence of how England celebrated Kane’s opener the same criticism can’t be aimed at Southgate’s squad.

Virtually every England player, aside from Jordan Pickford, rushed in to join the melee.

All for one and one for all.

(It was at this point in writing the piece that Kyle Walker gave away a penalty and Tunisia equalised. England: keeping you on your toes since 1966).
