Harry Kane has praised his England teammates for the 'togetherness' they showed during their win against Bulgaria on Monday evening, as he also singled out Aston Villa's Tyrone Mings for a 'great' debut.
In a game marred by racist abuse from the home crowd, England let their football do the talking on the pitch, as they put six past their opponents in Sofia.
The game was stopped on two occasions in the first half and could have been abandoned altogether, but instead, Gareth Southgate's men rose highest and secured three points in their Euro 2020 qualifier.
Marcus Rashford, Ross Barkley (2), Raheem Sterling (2), and Kane himself got on the scoresheet, as England responded well to that defeat against the Czech Republic last time out.
After the game, Kane praised his teammates for their performance and their reaction to the circumstances they had to play under, as he also credited Villa powerhouse, Mings:
Whilst Kane only found the back of the net once, he produced an outstanding performance and played a part in a lot of England's goals on the night.
On the night, Kane provided three assists for his teammates, as well as scoring his goal late on in the game, which was deserved given how he played.
Kane wasn't the only top performer on the night, Rashford, Raheem Sterling and Ross Barkley were outstanding, as was Mings, who was making his debut for his country.
The Villa man looked calm in defence and fitted in brilliantly alongside Harry Maguire at the back, and despite the racist chanting from the stands, he showcased his maturity on the pitch.
