England captain Harry Kane said he is expecting a “tough battle” against France after he scored his first goal of the tournament on Sunday.

Saturday’s match will mark the first time England have faced France at a World Cup in 40 years, the two sides having last met at the 1982 tournament in Spain when England ran out 3-1 winners after Bryan Robson put them ahead after just 27 seconds.

“Knockout games are never easy. We have shown great maturity throughout the tournament,” said Kane.

“Mentality was top from the beginning. Another knockout win, over the years they have not been easy for England but we have a great mixture of youth and experience now.

“We will enjoy this one, but then our focus turns to that [France game]. It will be a really tough battle. If you are going to win the World Cup you have to play the best teams and France are up there.”
