In news from the Football World Cup

England achieved their most emphatic World Cup result as Harry Kane's hat-trick helped them thrash Panama 6-1 and reach the last 16. There were five first-half goals, with John Stones heading in the opener. Kane made it 2-0 from the spot before Jesse Lingard, who was fouled in the box, made it 3-0 with a great strike.

Stones nodded in his second, Kane smashed in another penalty and then scored a lucky third, before Felipe Baloy fired in a consolation goal. This was the first time England had scored more than four goals in a World Cup match since the 1966 final against Germany.
