Marcus Rashford set to return to England training on Friday

Marcus Rashford set to return to England training on Friday

England's Group G opener against Tunisia in Volgograd is now just a week away, with anticipation and excitement sure to go up another notch when the team lands in Russian Federation just two days before the World Cup starts.

Rashford scored a splendid goal to open the scoring against Costa Rica to stake a strong claim to accompany Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling in attack, but his chances may have suffered a minor setback.

England will also face World Cup debutants Panama and highly fancied Belgium in Group G.

The Three Lions leave for Russian Federation on Tuesday before next Monday's Group G opener against Tunisia in Volgograd.

Former Notts County manager Sam Allardyce says he is "jealous" of Gareth Southgate and believes it should be him leading England at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

It will be intriguing, though, to see how they cope with the pressure once the competition gets underway.

Kane, though, told the English daily newspapers this is not the case with the present group under Gareth Southgate - as many of them have played with each other at Under-21 level.

Kremlin doubts veracity of CNN report on Trump’s plans for Syria
Moscow and Washington confirmed the location and date of the summit simultaneously on Thursday. Finnish President Sauli Niinisto said he welcomed the planned dialogue.

Possibly a lame excuse in England's defence - for the '74 and '78 World Cup finals - only 16 teams were in both showpieces.

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

Young insists himself and the rest of the travelling roster know how important a good start to the World Cup is though and are ready to achieve exactly that in the opening game against Tunisia on Monday night.

"I think he knows what the players need, how to get players together and I think he's brought that togetherness back. But don't worry, we are going to get there'".

In captain Harry Kane, England have one of the tournament's most deadly frontmen, although finding the right creative midfielders to supply him has proved problematic.

The sticker book has been a work in progress for a couple of months, my wife has already threatened divorce if one more wallchart is put up in the garage and my eyes will go square if I read one more preview ahead of the greatest show on earth.

England go into the tournament in good form having gone ten games unbeaten, winning seven of them.
