And his sister Liz Watkins, 64, who lives in Huddersfield but is originally from Leicester, said: "It was a good game" as she singled out Harry Maguire for helping Kane to score his victor.

But after deciding last week to make the trip, he said he had been "blown away" by the welcome from the locals in Volgograd, where England will play Tunisia in their World Cup opener on Monday.

An England fan has urged stay-at-home supporters to come and see Russian Federation for themselves after locals welcomed him with open arms. After an incredible game Hainsey and Buvey bring you all the action as it happened direct from Volgograd.

His last gasp injury time header sealed a 2-1 victory for the Three Lions, following up his first half strike.

Nearly two million people lost their lives during the six-month siege of the city and, with relations between Russian Federation and the United Kingdom now strained, Southgate said England's trip offers a chance of perspective.

Mr Law said: "To get a last-minute victor, Harry Kane absolute legend".

He said: "He (Kane) is a top, top striker isn't he".

England had penalty claims of their own turned down before struggling to maintain their intensity after halftime.

England fans rejoiced on the streets of Volgograd after Harry Kane's late show got some dreaming of the final.

"At 1-1 we had a plan to. keep probing but not get caught on the counter-attack", said England manager Gareth Southgate.

England defender Kyle Walker swung an arm behind him and caught Fakhreddine Ben Youssef in the face and Colombia referee Wilmar Roldan pointed to the spot.

"There were a lot of decisions against us and maybe there was a bit of justice at the end".

Southgate said: "We're of course aware of the history of the city and the importance of that battle in the Second World War".

England came to Russian Federation determined to put behind them the disappointment of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil when they failed to win a game and went out at the first hurdle.
