25 - There were 25 uninterrupted passes played by England before their sixth goal, the longest sequence for a World Cup goal since 1966 and one more pass than Esteban Cambiasso's goal for Argentina v Serbia in 2006 (24).
The BBC announced on Monday that 14.1m watched on BBC One - an audience share of 82.9 per cent - and there were 2.8m live stream requests across BBC online.
Kane's hat-trick was the first for England at the World Cup finals since 1986 and it made the captain the first England player to score five goals in the group stage.
To put that into context, there have only been two World Cups or European Championships in the past 22 years where we have had more than that over the whole tournament.
England were 5-0 up at halftime after taking full advantage of a poor Panamanian defence.
Senegal thought they had won the match as Moussa Wague drilled the ball into the top of the net on 71 minutes to make it 2-1 after Sadio Mane's fortuitous first-half opener was cancelled out by Takashi Inui's curling shot. Those figures do not include the audience for the build-up and post-match coverage. It's nice going into that game we don't need a result to qualify.
"The difference of goals could have been more", Gomez said, as quoted by Sky Sports News.
The terms of trade have also shifted their way, thanks to the introduction at this World Cup of video assistant referees (VAR), because the electronic scrutiny tends to punish defenders who grab attacking players at corners.
World Cup holders Germany were breathing a sigh of relief after Toni Kroos's 95th-minute missile secured a last-gasp 2-1 win over Sweden on Saturday. "Our set plays were also a threat". "(It's) fantastic to be through and to do it this way is brilliant", Kane said.
He could be in contention for a start against Belgium in England's final group game, with qualification already achieved.
In Russia, England has been trying to cast aside the negativity of the past while remolding the image of the team on and off the field.
Furthermore, England have eclipsed Euro 2016's total of four goals, in one half of football. "He's at the end of his career and he's going to retire from the national team, and God gave him the opportunity because of his professionalism to have this lovely goal".
For Panama, the Central America country harvested the first World Cup finals goal in its second match.
We're in trouble if Danny Rose becomes our first choice LWB.he looks off the pace vs a exhausted Panama. England must hope that Dele Alli recovers from injury to resume his role in Kane's back. We've got some of the best players in the world scoring goals, doing well.
"I guess the bits in the middle were pretty good, but I am being hyper-critical".
England picked up where it left off in Volgograd, with a corner from Kieran Trippier headed into the net in the eighth minute.
Four years on from the last World Cup which he missed due to injury, Colombia's Radamel Falcao scores one of his side's three goals against Poland. Southgate said he enjoyed that game more than the massacre of Panama, because he enjoyed the tension.
With a grin, Southgate explained to the BBC: "I'm being hyper-critical, but I didn't like the start".
