Knee complaint sidelines Rashford for England's first training session in Russian Federation

Knee complaint sidelines Rashford for England's first training session in Russian Federation

After flying into Saint Petersburg, England headed to their base camp in the seaside town of Repino, 45km northwest of the city, where preparations will start for the Three Lions' opening game against Tunisia on Monday.

Kane, who jetted off to Russian Federation with his team-mates on Tuesday, was still at school when Pochettino fouled Michael Owen in the 2002 World Cup, allowing David Beckham to score from the penalty spot and earn England a 1-0 group-stage win over Argentina.

"The aim is to be aggressive and courageous in possession", Kane told British media.

"We are seeing a team that is enjoying each other's company, getting on well, is very proud to represent the nation".

"We know we are not the finished article - in fact, we're a long way from it - but I think people see signs of progress and enjoy watching us and the manner in which we try to play".

Cardi B announces birth of daughter on Instagram
Cardi B , 25, and Offset , 26, have been together since a chance meeting in NY in February 2017. She also told the host that Offset , 26, had chosen their daughter's name.

"There will be tough moments and there will be ups and downs".

The Three Lions have often capitulated in shootout scenarios at major global tournaments having been knocked out of the World Cups in 1990, 1998 and 2006 on penalties. But for us it's to play attacking football, to score, and that's important.

"One night I was playing golf - next day they said you can't carry on".

"I'd love to win everything with Tottenham, but for me personally the World Cup outweighs them all".

"It's something I want to change, hopefully this summer", Kane said.

Harry and Meghan due in Dublin for two-day visit
The Book of Kells is one of Ireland's greatest cultural treasures, and is on display at Trinity College in the heart of Dublin . Meetings with The President of Ireland, Michael Higgins, and with The Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, are both planned.

"I've always felt you go through spells: the ball goes in sometimes and other times it doesn't, like in August every year for me". So that's big tournaments.

One cause for concern ahead of a major tournament being held in Russian Federation has to be whether or not the locals will be capable of behaving themselves with the country renowned in the past for violent behaviour when football is concerned.

A number of national newspapers claimed on Thursday evening that Southgate will opt to put Raheem Sterling in support of lead striker Harry Kane, in a side containing nine World Cup debutants.

England were also dumped out of the European Championship in 1996, 2004 and 2012 in shootouts, winning just one game on penalties against Spain back in 1996.

"Obviously I understand you've got the Champions League and Premier League - so many big competitions - but, for me, I don't think it gets much bigger than the World Cup".

England Face Sweden For Semi-Final Place In Russia
For the first half-an-hour or so we had things under control until they get that corner and they score, 1-0, and that sets us back behind a team playing a five-man defence.

I have to say that the World Cup itself holds special memories for me.
