England vs. Panama
Minute Commentary
90' Thank you!
Thanks for tuning in to our coverage of England v Panama in Group G! Stay tuned for more World Cup action – the next game on the menu is Japan v Senegal in Group H.
90' Panama defeated but not without joy
Panama knew it was going to be difficult for them in their first World Cup group stage appearance, and that’s exactly how it’s played out for them against a resolute England side. Despite the scoreline however, both the Panamanian players and supporters will be able to take something from this match and this tournament, as their first goal on the world stage will be remembered for a long time in the annals of Panamanian football history.
90' England to the knockouts!
England will be ecstatic with this scoreline, comprehensively punching their tickets to the knock-out round and avoiding any sort of injuries or serious yellow card trouble. The game really was over at half time, but both teams showed good spirit and didn’t give up until the end.
The ref blows the whistle and the game is over!
90' Four minutes added
Four more minutes will be played in this one
89' Happy supporters all around
As this game winds down, it’s good to see the supporters for both sides in good spirits.
86' Speed from Vardy
Vardy shows his speed and sprints to get to a ball on the right side of the pitch, before cutting his cross back and finding Young in the middle of the pitch. Young does extremely well to bring the ball down, but his through ball to Rose is too strong.
82' Shot from Sterling
Sterling picks up the ball on the left side before attempting to curl the ball into the far post with his right – just wide.
78' Great set piece goal from Panama
Panama have scored their first ever goal in a World Cup!!! Historic! The ball swung in by Avila is perfect and finds Baloy sliding to meet it in the middle of the box, and the attacker makes no mistake, placing the ball into the bottom corner! The goal may not mean much for the result today, but the Panamanians are celebrating as if they’ve won the cup!
76' Good chance for Panama
Quick counter From Panama and the ball finds Rodriguez on the left side – his cross is deflected at source and goes behind from a corner. The resulting corner is swung in and finds Torres completely alone at the back post, but the defender is unable to put the ball on goal.
73' Yellow for Murillo
Cynical foul from Murillo as he brings down Sterling from behind on his way to goal. The Panamanian defender gets a yellow card for the infraction.
71' England slowing it down
At 6-0, England will surely be most worries about yellow card accumulation and avoiding injuries now. They can low down the pace of the game and let the last 20 minutes play out.
67' More changes now
The last three changes are coming onto the pitch now. For England, Danny Rose enters for Trippier. For Panama, Arroyo comes on for Barcenas, and Baloy comes on for Gomez.
63' Changes for both sides
A flurry of changes after the sixth goal. For England, Vardy comes on for Kane, and Delph comes on for Lingard. For Panama, Avila comes on for Godoy.
62' Lucky this time for England
A shot from Loftus-Cheek hits off of Harry Kane, changing the flight of the ball significantly. Shouts for offside but replay shows that Kane is JUST onside, as Torres’s back foot keeps the striker on.
62' GOAL! SIX!
57' Good passing from England
England are playing with confidence, circulating the ball well with back-heels and cross-field passes, making sure every player gets a touch on the ball.
56' More long play from England
Another long ball from defense tries to find Trippier on the right side, but is just a bit too far
53' Corner for England
Loftus-Cheek again receives the ball on the right side of the box but the Panamanian defender pokes the ball behind for a corner.
49' Corner for Panama
Kyle Walker tries to control the ball and beat his defender on the right side, but makes a mistake and the ball goes out for a corner.
48' England in for the sixth?
Even though this game is almost definitely already won, the English actually have an incentive to score more goals – with one more goal in this match, they’ll win their group with just a draw against Belgium.
46' England still pressuring
England still taking the ball to Panama, with penetrating balls finding Kane and then Sterling, but both players are unable to end the moves in shots on goal.
46' Second half begins!
The teams are back on the pitch, and Panama starts with the ball.
45' Insurmountable scoreline
England are surely on to the knock-outs now, and will be thinking about their clash with Belgium to decide the winner of the group. After 45 minutes, this game is pretty much over.
45' Panama have been poor
At this point in the match, Panama will be more concerned with not conceding more goals than they will with trying to get anything from this match. England have completely dominated this game, and have looked threatening with every single attack. Panama have not been helping themselves though, giving away two silly penalties and two goals on set pieces.
45' Half-time! 5-0 to England....
Halftime arrives and England have well and truly run away with this one.
45' Same spot for Kane
On the penalty, Kane goes to the same side and almost the same exact spot, once again slotting the penalty with ease. 5-0 and this game is well and truly over.
44' Clear Penalty...
Clear penalty on the corner, as Murillo pulls down Kane aggressively in the middle of the box. This is becoming a bit embarrassing for Panama.
42' More English Pressure
England are showing no intention to slow down, as Loftus-Cheek jukes a couple of defenders before finding Sterling at the top of the box. Sterling once again gives the ball to Lingard, whose shot is off-target.
40' The fourth probably seals it
A beautiful set piece sees a ball find Kane at the back post, who heads across to a wide-open Sterling in the middle of the box. Sterling’s header is saved well by Penedo, but Stones is there to head in the rebound. This is getting ugly now for the Panamanians, the game is almost surely gone.
39' Tough day for Panama
England look extremely strong in this first half, and Panama seem to have not risen to the occasion on this day. Not 40 minutes in and the score-line is already extremely unfavorable for the Central Americans.
36' One of the goals of the Tournament!
A GOLAZO for Jesse Lingard and England are running away with this one! Lingard and Sterling connect beautifully at the top of the box, and the City forwards drops it off for his United counterpart at the circle – Lingard takes a single touch and curls the ball beautifully into the top right corner of the net. Again, Penedo left with no chance.
33' Set piece for England
A free kick from Trippier leads to a back-post header from Maguire, who tries to head the ball back towards the center of the box but is unable to.
30' Long balls continue
Another English long-ball almost finds the sprinting Raheem Sterling on the right side, but Penedo is wise to it and comes out to collect the ball.
30' Better from Panama
Good play from Cooper and Blas Perez in the middle leads to a penetrating ball on the left side on the box, but Rodriguez is unable to put his cross towards the center.
26' Panamanian Possession
The Panamanians are enjoying their best bit of possession yet, passing the ball from side to side and trying to unlock the English defense.
24' English long balls causing problems
Panama have had a hard time to this point dealing with England playing the ball long – the center backs don’t seem to be able to track the runs of either Lingard or Loftus-Cheek.
23' Yellow for England
England’s first yellow card goes to Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
23' What a penalty
As Kane stepped up to take the penalty, was there ever any doubt? The Spurs forward strikes the ball straight into the top left corner of the net – Penedo had absolutely no chance.
20' Penalty to England!
Lingard receives the ball in the center of the box and before he can control the box, Torres and Escobar bring him down.
16' Positive Play from Panama
Murillo does an excellent job beating his defender on the right side before delivering the ball to Barcenas at the top of the box. The forward tries a curling, left-footed effort but it drifts just wide of the post.
10' First yellow of the match for Panama
The first yellow card of the match is for Armando Cooper, for a cynical foul on Raheem Sterling.
10' Panama in a rut
Panama will be extremely disappointed to give up a goal so easily on a set piece, especially so early in the match. Just a simple lapse and now they have a mountain to climb in order to get anything from this one.
9' Easy for Stones, 1-0 to England!
Stones is left completely open in the middle of the box on the corner, and as able to pick his spot in the bottom left corner of Penedo’s goal! Where was his defender??
6' Panamanian spirit
Panama showing fight in the first few minutes of this match, much like they did in the first half against Belgium.
4' Panama Counter!
A giveaway by Stones leads to a quick counter from Panama. The balls arrives on the left side and finds Godoy, but his shot is wild and doesn’t threaten Pickford.
3' Lots of Yellows for Panama
The on-field commentators have aptly noted that this Panamanian team has 5 players currently on yellow cards from their game against Belgium – survival in the group will obviously be the first priority, but yellow card accumulation will also be weighing on their minds.
1' First attack for the English
The first attack comes from the English, as Loftus-Cheek receives the ball on the right wing and beats his defender. His cross on the ground finds Lingard, but the Manchester United forward is not able to control the ball and eventually play is stopped when Lingard is hit by an accidental elbow while going up for a header.
0' Kickoff!
And we’re off! It’s the English that will get us started in this first half.
0' Almost Ready!
The captains are leading their teams out of the tunnels now, as we await the national anthems!
