Another English corner leads to a clash between John Stones and Tunisian keeper Mustapha. Not a lot in the collison but it looks like Tunisia are happy to waste a bit of time as they look to run down the clock. 

80'

Substitution

Ruben Loftus-Cheek replaces Dele Alli for England.

Ashely Young's free kick on the edge of the box goes over the bar.

69'

Englands best player Kieran Trippier has an attempt on goal from a free kick around 30 yards from goal but it goes tamely wide. 

68'

Substitution

Marcus Rashford replaces Raheem Sterling for England.

66'

Maguire hasn't done himself any harm with his performance tonight. His run down the left led him switching the play before following into the box. He couldn't get a touch on it though and the ball is cleared. It's gone a bit flat here and Gareth Southgate may well look at making a change to provide a spark for his team. 

61'

Corner for England is cleared and comes to nothing. They look to be getting most of their joy down the right hand side. On a number of occasions tonight Trippier has provided most of their attacking threat when being found by Jordan Henderson. 

55'

England struggling to get a foothold of this game so far in the second half as Tunisia continue to enjoy the majority of possesion. Little or no chances so far. 

51'

Harry Kane probably should of had a penalty after being wrestled to the ground for the second time tonight from Yarssine Meriah. Referee waves for him to get up. 

48'

Confident start to the second half from Tunisia. Popping the ball around all over the pitch. 

46'

Second Half

The second half between Tunisia and England has started.

45' + 3'

Half Time

It is half-time between Tunisia and England.

44'

Lingard again goes agonisingly close. After latching onto a Trippier ball over the top he just guides it past Mustapha but it hits the post and goes for a goal kick. 



43'

How many chances do England need? 

This time it's Manchester United's Jesse Lingard who's shot is deflected over the bar and out for a corner from the penalty spot. Tunisia are not comfortable from crosses.

39'

What a chance for John Stones to give England the lead again. 

Maguire's header again from a Trippier freekick is met at the back post, it is cleared off the line before falling to Stones 6 yards out who completely snatches at it and kicks thin air. What a miss. 

35'

Ferjani Sassi's penalty is drilled low to the right of Jordan Pickford and it sends the Tunisian fans absolutely mental in the stands. 1-1 sloppiness has cost England their lead here. 

35'

PENALTY SCORED!

Ferjani Sassi scores for Tunisia from the penalty spot.

33'

27'

England a bit casual at the back leads to a chance for Tunisia. 

Ferjani Sassi's effort from 20 yards out is deflected to the right of Jordan Pickford's goal. 

24'

Another chance for England to extend their lead as an Ashley Young cross finds Lingard in acres of space at the back post. His try to catch an effort on the volley but it is weak into the ground and bounces over the bar. 

23'

First time Tunisia have really created anyhing as Bronn makes a powerful run down the right hand side to force a corner. 

It eventully comes to nothing but Sliti had a shot high over the bar. 

18'

England look like they can get in on goal at ease here.

A lovely ball by Walker found Trippier marauding down the right hand side, his cross fell to Jordan Henderson at the edge of the box and his low rifled shot is gathered by the new keeper Mustapha. He could be in for a busy night. 

15'

After a wonderful initial save Mouez Hassen has had to replaced because of what looks like a shoulder injury. He left the field in tears and has been replaced by Farouk Ben Mustapha. 



15'

Substitution

Farouk Ben Mustapha replaces Mouez Hassen for Tunisia.

11'

England lead! And who else but Harry Kane. 

John Stones header from a corner looked destined for the top corner but Hassan made an unbelievale save which parried out to the feet of Harry Kane. 

Well deserved lead for England after 11 minutes in Volgograd

11'

GOAL!

Harry Kane scores for England.

9'

The huge numbers of Tunisian fans in attendence are beginning to cheer as the team sting a number of passes together.

Good opening here by England. Lingard again finds himself in acres of space down the right and uts a ball across to Sterling, he stumbles and puts it wide. Luckily for the Manchester City player he was flagged offisde. 

3'

Great chance for England already. Henderson plays a delightful ball over the top to Jesse Lingard who plays it across the face of goal. It rebounds off a Tunisia defender and falls to Lingard from 6 yards out but the Tunisia goalkeeper Hassen makes a great save.
