30th match of the world cup saw England beat Panama 6-1 to qualify for the round of 16 along with Belgium.
Harry Kane scored a hat-trick while John Stones contributed with a brace. Jesse Lingard too joined in the party scoring a superb goal from outside the box. The main highlight of the game came when England scored 5 in the first half.
The win saw former players, pundits and fans jump in joy as it had been a while since they had seen their national side play in such manner they did today. England have qualified for the knockouts for the first time since 2006 having failed to do in 2010 and 2014.

Blinding finish from Harry Kane. The first player to score a hat-trick and a brace in consecutive World Cup games since 1986.
