The Red Arrows wish England luck ahead of World Cup

England have arrived at their training base in Repino, near St. Petersburg, to begin their World Cup preparations ahead of their Russian Federation 2018 opener against Tunisia on Monday.

Playing the part will be another matter entirely.

England manager Gareth Southgate has said his players will fly to Russian Federation on Tuesday having started to build a bridge between the squad and a sceptical nation.

The official England attire will apparently set you back £413 from M&S if you want to look as sharp as Dele Alli, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Raheem Sterling and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who happily posed for pictures on Tuesday morning.

The single was the soundtrack to England's World Cup win in 1966.

England's squad arrived in Russian Federation on Tuesday and will train in Repino ahead of their Group G opener against Tunisia next Monday.

England boss Gareth Southgate says that Marcus Rashford picked up "a knock" during the team's final training session before leaving for Russian Federation for the World Cup.

England have won only six matches in the knockout stages of major worldwide tournaments since their World Cup triumph in 1966, the last victory of that kind being 12 years ago against Ecuador.

That process has not been easy after the ignominy of losing against Iceland in the European Championship two years ago - a defeat that ended Roy Hodgson's reign - and Southgate has also witnessed the fans' disenchantment during his own reign, most notably in the form of mutinous chants and a mass walkout during the World Cup qualifier in Malta in September. It is the one competition that everybody dreams of winning.

"I think a lot has been said about staying in cliques and teams staying in teams, but I've not seen that at all here".

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. "We just wanted to get over here and settled to start to prepare for the games ahead", said England captain Harry Kane.

"I'm confident it won't happen - I won't say 100 per cent because you never know in football - but in this team we wear our heart on our sleeve".

Southgate prefers a more measured view, focusing on the way the Three Lions go about their work rather than predicting the final outcome.

"It is a World Cup - there is always going to be pressure, nerves and excitement. We want to take this tournament head on", Kane told a news conference.
