Kane was speaking in the press conference after his two goals gave England a 2-1 win over Tunisia in their World Cup opener in Volgograd on Monday.

England captain Harry Kane has admitted that the Russian dolls that have popped up in his image in Russia 'make me look chubby.' .

"Maybe there was a bit of justice at the end", Kane said.
