South Korea's defense was strong for much of the match, but they had problems in the penalty box.

Although the insects are harmless enough, the swarms can be a distraction. Eden Hazard looks nearly unstoppable at present whilst Romelu Lukaku has scored 13 goals in his last nine global appearances.

"Everyone at home wants England to win", Southgate said, "but they want to see them play well and enjoy their football and that's what I want as a coach".

"This team shouldn't be burdened with that because they're a fresh group, majority have very few worldwide caps, so the future is all ahead of them", Southgate told reporters at the Volgograd Arena on Sunday.

England teammate Ashley Young was also a tad distracted by the flying insects. "Nobody likes losing. Some people may say that three goals is a lot, but honestly, three goals against the team we played against today, taking into consideration our experience, this was a normal result, or even abnormal if you consider that it should have been worse".

Not everyone was bothered, though. "I am not expecting an easy game", he said.

Panama earned its first ever World Cup berth and couldn't wait to begin its adventure on soccer's biggest stage. Look out for the Torres', Gabriel and Roman, who top-scored for Panama with just two goals apiece during qualification.

'Nobody likes' separating kids from parents at the border, Conway says
Kellyanne Conway told NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday that "nobody likes" pulling apart families. The situation now is "inhumane" and "un-American", he said.

Ultimately it was a comfortable victory for Roberto Martinez's Belgian side - but what did we learn about England's upcoming opponents? You're never happy when you lose but I told my players that they lost with dignity.

"If you don't score a goal quickly, you need to be prepared to work hard". This is Tunisia's first World Cup match in 12 years but it is still a storied team. May 24, 2009. Now I'm playing in another World Cup in Russian Federation, and my brother is playing with me this time. "As a group, we can be 30 percent better".

Belgium, unbeaten in their last 20 matches, will now be full of confidence for games against Tunisia and England.

Despite being first-time participants, Panama has one of the oldest squads in the tournament and many of its key players would have been better suited for making an impact four years ago when Los Canaleros barely missed qualifying.

Belgium eventually awakened and played an exceptional second half in its 3-0 win over Panama to open a tournament of massive expectations for the team.

"And I'm sure a player like (Dedryck) Boyata is going to do well. It's going to be very important".
