England kicked off their 2018 World Cup campaign with a deserved win, although they left it late to secure the win with a Harry Kane header at the death.

They should have been out of sight way before this in all honesty, after spurning a host of clear-cut chances in the first-half.

There were a number of standout performances in England shirts in the first 45 but Kieran Trippier was brilliant, bombing up the right flank and delivering brilliant crosses.

His display didn’t go unnoticed by England fans, who flocked onto Twitter to heap praise onto him.

He made the squad after Kyle Walker, a former Spurs player, was moved into the centre by Gareth Southgate.

And it was Walker who gave the penalty away that gave Tunisia an unexpected lifeline in the game after an early Kane goal had put England ahead.

In the end though, justice was done and England fans around the globe breathed a sigh of relief.

Meanwhile, Trippier was getting plaudits on Twitter for a fantastic display that bodes well for England for the rest of the tournament.

Here are the best reactions to Trippier’s game against Tunisia:
