England are chomping at the bit to get started after days of watching other World Cup games and hoping to kick-off a major tournament with a win for the first time since the 2006 World Cup.

"I can say now everything we've done in training is exactly what we've seen in the videos from Tunisia".

Southgate usually only tells his players who is starting on the day of the game, but explained to the press that in this case he was making an exception given the importance of the occasion, reported Xinhua news agency.

Southgate has been playing his part, going to fan forums in the buildup to the tournament to recognize the commitment and cost involved watching England overseas.

England coach Gareth Southgate.

"Sometimes those really good people who follow us are overlooked at the expense of some who have caused problems in the past", Southgate said.

"Hopefully we can go there and play with a freedom that other England teams haven't had".

After the humiliation of a second round exit at the hands of Iceland in Euro 2016 and their failure to get out of the group stage in Brazil four years ago, England fans were in no mood for rabble rousing talk of winning the tournament.




"In this squad there are so many good players, when you pick one, all of the team is behind him".

Meanwhile, England are favourites to claim an opening victory over Tunisia in Group G, even if the country's recent tournament experience has often undermined the form guide.

Germany are looking to secure back-to-back World Cup titles for the first time in the nation's history.

"I'd love to see Boston build our first open-air stadium since Fenway Park", Walsh said.

"It's his calmness, the way he handles situations within the group and hard situations that always occur before tournaments", said midfielder Eric Dier.

Gerrard said: "I think the treatment of Raheem has been slightly over the top". Not only are they more relatable but painted in a more sympathetic light, beyond the caricatures of millionaire mercenaries just chasing more money.

Kane says that, despite being captain, leadership will be shared among players but that he knows he has to deliver the goals.

Such considered tutelage coupled with the promise at his disposal has brought encouragement ahead of the World Cup, but it is underpinned by common sense.
