NIZHNY NOVGOROD — Harry Kane struck a hat-trick with England marching into the last 16 of the World Cup with a record 6-1 win over a woeful Panama in its World Cup Group G match on Sunday.

The result, a record win for England in a World Cup finals match, means England qualifies for the knockout stage with a game to spare, along with Belgium which also has six points. Tournament debutant Panama is eliminated along with Tunisia.

England were 5-0 up at halftime after taking full advantage of a poor Panamanian defence. A header from a corner by John Stones, a penalty from Kane and a beautiful strike from the edge of the box by Jesse Lingard set them on their way.

A Stones header from a well-worked free-kick routine and a second Kane penalty gave them a 5-0 lead going into the break.

Panama pulled a goal back in the 78th minute through Felipe Baloy — the Central American nation’s first goal at a World Cup.
