Tunisia coach Nabil Maaloul said his side's disciplined defensive formation was gradually worn down by a superior England team and their "optimal striker" Harry Kane after a late 2-1 defeat in their opening World Cup game on Monday.
England captain Kane scored twice including a stoppage-time winner to dash Tunisian hopes of good start in Group G.
"I think he was behind the victory of the English team. It was him who was always there at the right time. He is the optimal striker," Maaloul told reporters.
