Southgate's approach to the Russian Federation showpiece has come in for consistent praise, and Southgate will hope that having told his players 48 hours ahead of Monday's match then the players involved can switch on mentally, and be all set to try and kick off their quest for World Cup glory on a positive note.

"But from the set-up we've done, it's pretty clear to see who is probably going to be starting". "They can go and just take the shackles off and play".

According to Sky Sports, Jesse said: "Southgate has come in with the mentality to play with freedom, play without fear, and you will enjoy your time more".

Southgate has a young and dynamic group of players but English footballers have rarely looked comfortable in slow, possession-based games.

"Our first objective is to qualify from the group and we have to be prepared for the fact that might happen smoothly or it might have to go into the 89th or 94th minute of the third game".

"We've got a fantastic squad, great players, and if I am selected to play and I have to make my way back to see my family, there are players more than capable of doing the job I can do, if not a lot better".

England's support staff are ready to provide the player a plane to get home as soon as he gets word of an impending birth and then jet him back to Russian Federation to rejoin the squad.

Having been under the assumption Rooney would captain the England team through their qualifiers for Russian Federation, his departure surprised many - including his teammate Rose.

Budweiser has also announced Gerrard as their official World Cup Ambassador for their FIFA World Cup campaign today, who knows just how important fans are when it comes to spurring on a team for a landmark victory.

"I mean the goal was world-class, really, but he's teasing defenders by the touchline and his performance wasn't ideal, but he was enjoying his football and that was great to see".

"But players are aware there is that extra spotlight on them". He is meticulous and considered, he wants to be the best he can be and believes he can be one of the best in the world.
