England’s impressive 6-1 win over Panama on Sunday has led many Three Lions fans to ponder whether Gareth Southgate’s side can win the World Cup.

Indeed, that exact question is the ninth most common entered into Google on the subject of the England squad since the victory secured them a place in the knockout stages.


The top question asked of the search engine in the UK regarding England is who their next opponents are, with internet users also keen to know when the game takes place.

Harry Kane, who will be looking to add to his five World Cup goals against Belgium on Thursday, unsurprisingly was the most searched England player after his hat-trick against Panama.


The most frequent enquiries made about the Tottenham striker on Google over the past 24 hours have been who he plays for, his age, whether he is married and – sixth on the list – ‘who is Harry Kane?’
