England fans lost their minds over Harry Kane's late game-winning goal

Morgan, on the other hand, was more critical in his analysis of England's performance, accusing "everyone else" except Kane of "horrific finishing".

Yet as the stadium announcer in Volgograd played "Football's Coming Home", England's lament to their years of hurt at worldwide level as they started their latest major tournament adventure on Monday night, a familiar story was set to unfold once again.
