3 min: A clever ball over the top from Henderson pierces Tunisia’s ropey offside trap and sends Alli haring down the right. He has Sterling steaming into the six-yard box, waiting for a low ball, but his low ball’s cut out. Tunisia are all over the place, though. Alli wins the ball off Maaloul and it runs to Lingard, six yards out. He tries to sweep it home but his low drive’s saved brilliantly by Hassen! It was almost the perfect start for England and they threaten again from the corner, Maguire’s header clawed away by Hassen!
2 min: There are a lot of empty seats in the Volgograd Arena. How odd. The atmosphere sounds a bit subdued. “The midges might be an omen for the game – buzzy, but small-bore, incoherently organised and ultimately irritating beyond belief,” Charles Antaki says. “How different from the giant alien grasshopper that landed on Javier Hernandez’ arm in Brazil. Now that was an insect.”
