Under-21 team, has tried different systems but says the common factor is a desire to get the most quality on the pitch.

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.

But there's a building sense of optimism that this young England team could produce impressive performances in Russian Federation, starting Monday against Tunisia in their opening Group G encounter in Volgograd.


"Sometimes those really good people who follow us are overlooked at the expense of some who have caused problems in the past", Southgate said. We couldn't be more excited to be joining forces with such a force in football like Steven too, whose commitment and passion for the game and the fans reflects ours so strongly.

"Back at training again but this time there is a difference: Marcus Rashford is out there finally on Russian soil", Matt reported.

The United attacker has insisted though that there's no reason they both can't play together which is certainly a prospect Southgate has considered before when perhaps facing stubborn opposition.

"The team is not guaranteed to be the 11 players that we think it might be".


England opens their World Cup against Tunisia today as a bit of an unknown. Obviously, Pep has helped me a lot just as he has other players at City. "The World Cup is another step above the Euros".

Southgate tried to lift the pressure off his squad after several former players have commented recently that the expectations of past tournaments stopped them from performing at their best level.

England play Tunisia in a group G match Monday June 18. I think he was away at an England camp and he had to fly back to see the birth of his child.

"The first game of any tournament is huge", said Kane. Harry Kane says they must be fearless.


England have managed only six knock-out wins at major tournaments since being crowned world champions in 1966, but Delph believes this group can match even the most formidable opponents.
