England striker Rashford suffers World Cup injury scare

  • Jordan Henderson is happy to play an attacking role for England

Assuming they survive a favourable group draw that has pitted them against Belgium, Tunisia and Panama, they face a likely knock-out game against Poland or Colombia followed by a possible quarterfinal against Brazil, which would be a repeat of 2002 when England narrowly lost.

England have won just one match in their last two World Cups but Southgate is remained bullish about his side's chances. We have got to keep wanting to improve.

"We are really pleased with the base and looking forward to getting to meet the community there a bit more".

England begin their campaign on June 18 when they take on Tunisia in Group G.

Southgate was speaking on Monday morning at St George's Park, where he waved off referee Martin Atkinson from ahead of a charity bike ride to Russian Federation.

"He's a nutter, but we knew that anyway".

They do so in good spirits, with inter-camp harmony at a peak, no injuries to speak of and a pair of quietly encouraging friendly wins over Nigeria and Costa Rica to reflect on.

The 23 squad members were joined by stand-by midfielder Jake Livermore in a game held on the Sir Bobby Charlton Pitch, where referee Anthony Taylor oversaw proceedings.

Southgate, who experienced the pitfalls of global football when he missed a penalty in the shootout loss to old foes Germany in the Euro '96 semi-finals hosted in England, did not wish to heighten expectations which have so often been a crushing burden for the national side. In the end, we want to entertain where we possibly can. You've got your minutes. "But don't worry, we are going to get there.'" Indeed, Ferdinand even believes that defeat in Russian Federation could be to the long-term benefit of the England players.

"But a couple of them went flying into tackles and you're thinking "bloody hell", and you're just jumping out the way of things".

The 24-year-old Tottenham striker hopes that an inexperienced squad will be motivated by the biggest stage, on which the national team has repeatedly disappointed since lifting the trophy in 1966.

"We are aiming to win the first game, then to target the second, and take that attitude to the World Cup".

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.
