England ready for first training session after arriving in Russian Federation

England's training base

England will look to get off to a flying start against Tunisia, who they met in their opening game in the 1998 World Cup, defeating the African side 2-0 in France.

The choice to disclose the selection to his players is surprising for Southgate, who has tended to name his side on the day of the game, but is created to allow those involved to focus fully on their task at the Volgograd Arena.

Southgate also wants players who are comfortable in possession, and, as has become clear as the team has evolved under his stewardship, pace.

England are not among the pre-tournament favourites, and are priced by the bookies to finish second in Group G behind Belgium, but several members of the squad have been bullish about their prospects of winning the trophy. Ambition and adventure too.

Before the tournament, England manager Gareth Southgate said of choosing Repino: "We went through a long process in terms of looking at the venues available".

"All of them play in the best domestic competition in the world, the Premiership, all of them playing for the best teams, all of them with experience of playing Champions League, which is a high level of football, obviously".

Implementing agreements by US, North Korean leaders requires patience — UN Sec Gen
Russian Federation is welcoming the outcome of the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kim, Moon's spokesman, says Seoul is still trying to figure out the exact meaning and intent of Trump's comments.

A number of England players posted to their social media before they jetted out to Russian Federation, including the previously mentioned Jesse Lingard and Kyle Walker.

"So, as a group of players, that is what we are going to do - enjoy our football, play with no fear and play exciting football at the same time". We have got to keep wanting to improve.

England's players were wished good luck by their partners on social media as they started their trip to Russian Federation.

One of the appeals is the fearlessness with which Lingard plays for United and England. "We just wanted to get over here and settled to start to prepare for the games ahead", said England captain Harry Kane. "We have been working on a system of play we think suits the players we have available and the style of play we want to implement as well".

"He's silky, an intelligent footballer and people have said I?m an intelligent footballer". You just pick up little things of what they do and try to put it into your game. Hopefully they can take that into the tournament'.
