Anticipation for the Group G opener against Tunisia on June 18 goes up a notch when Gareth Southgate's men jet out to Russian Federation on Tuesday to continue a preparation camp that has impressed in terms of quality and kinship. "The most important is the way you play, and your performances and your results", Southgate said.

A 53-year-old song written by a Scot has been promoted as England's "secret weapon" for the World Cup.

"Marcus took a slight knock, but nothing too serious, so we will have a look at that ahead of tomorrow's session which is open for everybody to see", Southgate told the BBC upon England's arrival in St Petersburg.

Johan Svanstrom, President, Hotels.com brand, said: "We are thrilled to be partnering with Tottenham Hotspur at such an exciting time for the club. We have personal support, team support and official protocol in place".

"Sometimes, going into a big tournament is about not losing and being passive but, for us, it's about winning the first game, winning the second game".

England's 23-man squad includes 11 black, Asian and ethnic minority players - the highest number they have taken to any major competition.

Good news (sort of) is that all of the Three Lions' fixtures occur outside traditional working hours, so you shouldn't miss a single minute.

The absence of Italy, Netherlands, Republic of Ireland and Chile, who were backed by 13,000 fans during last year's Confederations Cup, has raised the prospect of some games at the World Cup being played to smaller crowds than originally anticipated.

Such potential flash points led to Tottenham defender Danny Rose asking his family to remain behind at home amid fears of racist abuse.

England's players were wished good luck by their partners on social media as they started their trip to Russian Federation. "I don't think we were prepared for every eventuality".
