Twitter users reacted Monday to England’s 2 to 1 World Cup 2018 victory over Tunisia’s National Team in Volgograd.

England defeated Tunisia during its game at Volgograd Arena Monday. Tottenham and England star striker Harry Kane, England's youngest-ever captain at a World Cup, scored the opener in the 11th minute. He was also the one who scored the late winner in stoppage time to secure England's victory. Although Tunisian midfielder Ferjani Sassi scored a goal for the North African nation in the 35th minute from the penalty spot, it was not enough to win the match.

Fans in South London reacted at their team's victory in an appropriately emotional and chaotic way.

​Others believe the media's celebration was a bit exaggerated.

​Others found the game just plain boring.

​A number of users were disappointed by referee Wilmar Roldan and Video Referee Assistant for giving penalties to Tunisian players going physical on England, including Kane.

​However, many reacted to Tunisia's playing manner, with somewhat aggressive physical play, with a good chunk of humor.
