Paul Scholes causes a stir with comments about Man Utd's Jesse Lingard

Lingard is coming off the back of an impressive season with Man Utd, scoring 13 goals and providing seven assists in 48 appearances in all competitions. We've got to keep it going but, yes, you have to believe.

It's far from the most controversial goal celebration to have rocked the World Cup so far - that honour goes to the Swiss-Kosovan players who flipped the bird, as it were, at their Serbian rivals - but older viewers of England's 6-1 thrashing of Panama on Sunday may nonetheless have been baffled by Jesse Lingard's post-goal dance moves.

There is no denying it, England did the business and then some in their second game of the 2018 World Cup this afternoon.

"Jesse is that intelligent, he is that good, he understands the game, and when he gets in like this, although we didn't see it the other day when he wasn't clinical, we all said that when he gets the chances again he will put them away, and he certainly did", he said.

But how much do players like Lingard get paid for playing for England?

England picked up where it left off in Volgograd, with a corner from Kieran Trippier headed into the net in the eighth minute. Anibal Gody resorted to trying to wrestle Kane to the ground, only to concede a penalty that was converted by the Tottenham striker.

"When you are a debutante in a World Cup. the first goal is even more enjoyable", Gomez said.
