Marcus Rashford set to return to full training after knee injury

Marcus Rashford set to return to full training after knee injury

And it seems Southgate has now finally made up his mind.

England's meticulous preparations for their first World Cup game against Tunisia on Monday have been hampered by the constant daylight in Repino disrupting sleep.

Instead, Southgate will rely on selfless players such as Jordan Henderson, Eric Dier, and Fabian Delph, who will keep their shape and allow the wingbacks and forward players to offer a goal threat.

That, at least, was the conclusion some players reached after 10 bibs were handed to 10 outfield players for a training game against the other members of the squad.

"I've talked before about there being a disconnect between the supporters and the team and I've felt that there's different ways to bridge that".

It seems thousands of people will watch them arrive.

For the majority it probably came as no great surprise.

The Daily Mail claim that Ashley Young has been preferred to Danny Rose in the left wing-back role during drills at England's training facility in Zelenogorsk with Southgate not convinced the Spurs player is fit and sharp enough to start in 30 degree heat.

England have "a good group" capable of winning the World Cup in Russia, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said.

Young, older than Wayne Rooney. remember, but still in shape to secure his passage to Russian Federation, sets an example Southgate wants others to follow.

Walker is set to be used in central defence by Gareth Southgate, whose men will face Belgium, Panama and Tunisia in Group G. Ambition and adventure too.

Asked to sum up his own feelings about coaching his country on the biggest stage of all, he added: "I'm a very proud Englishman and I've said before that to play for my country was my only goal as a kid".

"I saw the game on Saturday night and they were good, but every team at the World Cup is a good team", said Young. It was important for us that we had a hotel with exclusive use.

England will play with either two or three central midfielders, depending if the team is deployed in a 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 formation, and they are likely to be functional, hard-working players.

"It's just the way he graces the pitch", Lingard said on Thursday.

"But what you have to do is make sure that doesn't control you and that you go for it in your performances". So we are all here with the same mentality, all wanting to win, all wanting to play.
