England team sheet leak: 'No drama' for Southgate with the media

The first rule of any press conference is that the last question is often the most unsafe and, boy, was England manager Gareth Southgate served up a curveball in front of a room full of reporters and broadcasters.

The media scrutiny on the England team is unlike the coverage of most other teams at the World Cup and if Southgate made a decision to take the focus away from the players or any negative takeaways from Monday's victory over Tunisia by instructing his assistant to give photographers at the open training session a glimpse of his notes, then it could well prove to be a masterstroke. "In the World Cup, maybe not". I know they want us to do well.

Walker said: "I think if you guys try to keep it to yourself and don't bring it out to the world, because it's not going to help us come the later stages of the tournament, please God we get there".

Neville was England's assistant in 2014 when he was photographed carrying a sheet of paper that included tactics ahead of the World Cup opener against Italy.

The England manager said on talkSPORT: "It doesn't bother me in the slightest".

But it's clear that England want more support from the media.

"Have you heard me talk to my players, have you?" he responded after being accused of talking down Panama's chances. I am sure Panama will be similar and they will try and make it hard for us.

"It doesn't give me or afford me any advantage". "That's fairly typical for most of the teams".

That way they will avoid giving the referee or VAR any temptation to award free-kicks or even penalties against the England team.

"There is a squad of 23 names on the sheet", Southgate told talkSPORT.

Gareth Southgate's side beat Tunisia 2-1 in their opening game but missed a series of first-half chances and needed a stoppage-time victor from captain Harry Kane to secure the three points.

He added: "These players have the opportunity to make their own history".

England midfielder Jordan Henderson said Panama will look to "mark out [their] territory" against England but the Liverpool captain said the Three Lions will be ready. We need to make sure hydration is the most important thing, so taking on plenty of fluids before, during and after the game.

Belgium found it tough indeed to break through Panama until Dries Mertens produced a bit of magic, so including Rashford from the start makes ideal sense for England.

And despite the claim from Gomez, they have a player in Harry Kane who certainly knows how to fire the bullets.
