Blinding finish from Harry Kane. The first player to score a hat-trick and a brace in consecutive World Cup games since 1986.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) June 24, 2018
Two of the three Harry Kane goals were scored from the penalty spot, Panama have been overly aggressive, neglecting the ball and chasing players instead, which led to the spot kicks.

England were known for taking poor penalties in the past but Tottenham striker Kane has put an end to that, scoring two perfect penalties in this match. Both kicks were beautiful to watch.
Harry Kane is now leading the highest goal scorer chart with five goals with Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo on four goals respectively.
