The Tottenham striker headed an injury-time victor to earn a 2-1 victory for England in their first World Cup match on Monday, having earlier opened the scoring with an 11th-minute volley.

Iceland's 340,000 strong population is the smallest ever to reach the big stage, beating Trinidad and Tobago, which held the title in 2006 with 1.3 million.

"I had to prove people wrong throughout my career and I love proving to myself I can do it", he said.

You see the other big teams and they haven't had anywhere near as many as we made.

I have been saying that this is a huge World Cup for Harry, and a chance to shine on the global stage and show he is one of the best strikers on the planet. If we are to go far, we have to win games like that and teams who do well need last-minute goals or last-minute saves.

Mr Nourse added: "I think we can get through the group and with England you never know after that".

"If Harry doesn't score we've got players who can", said Tripper. It is a World Cup and we are fighting for it. Look at Mexico beating Germany and how much it meant to them. And he was a presence in attack, not least in the lead up to the goal that gave England its 2-1 victory.

"It is created to enable (manager Gareth) Southgate to select more attack-minded, technical players with the added protection of three centre-backs and a holding midfielder".

All this being said, if you're somewhat put down by the lack of hype for the World Cup in Norwich, just go to a pub.

The youngster is more of a poacher than anything else and poachers tend to do better in two striker formations so the Tottenham's striker's link-up play should help him tenfold.
