Get to know England's World Cup squad with 'The Lions' Den'

The Belgium team

"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".

However, the Manchester United forward appears to be a doubt for England's World Cup opener with Tunisia next Monday after picking up "a knock" during a game between members of the squad at the start of this week.

Having secured a 1-0 World Cup qualifying win over Slovakia in his one and only game in charge, Allardyce will now have to watch on as Southgate guides England through the tournament.

Kane, 24, is the youngest player to be named captain of an English team for a World Cup tournament. We answer these questions and more in our Group G preview. That's what we are trying to instil into the team.

England's squad and manager Gareth Southgate fly to Russian Federation on Tuesday to settle into their training base in Repino, just outside St Petersburg.

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".

It is, perhaps, what makes him the ideal candidate to lead the country in Russian Federation and beyond.

"But I always look at my game and see how I can get better. I guess it is just something that naturally comes to me".
