The accolade goes to England defender Kieran Trippier, who carved out six chances for Three Lions during a 2-1 win over Tunisia.
England did what Spain, Brazil, Argentina and Germany failed to do as Harry Kane’s brace allowed them to start their World Cup campaign with a win after edging out a resilient North African side with just seconds left on the clock.

Trippier was one of England’s standout stars and it was from his corner that Kane eventually scored England’s winner.
The Tottenham star, who played as a wing back in Southgate’s side, completed 41 out of his 52 attempted passes and balanced his defensive responsibilities alongside attacking duties well.
