Let's hope the Three Lions are as impressive in their football kits against Tunisia in their World Cup opener on Monday night.

But since then Southgate has managed to fix the damage and provide supporters with a team he thinks the country can be proud of again.

Hosted by Craig Mitch, Lions' Den premieres on Tuesday 12th June from the airfield tarmac as England prepare to depart to Russian Federation.

He said: "I've talked before about there being a disconnect between the supporters and the team - and I've felt that there's different ways to bridge that". We know everything else comes on the back of that. "Everybody is looking forward to getting to the first game".

England's players were wished good luck by their partners on social media as they started their trip to Russian Federation.

"We ask people to pay a lot of money to watch football".

If England are able to find a way past the 2014 World Cup winners, Euro 2016 champions PORTUGAL would be next on the menu, if results were to go according to world rankings.

England's Group G opener against Tunisia in Volgograd is now less than 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.

Striker Marcus Rashford claimed last week that England's players are now more "clued up" under Southgate, as they bid to avoid a repeat of their past humiliations.

"We're pleased with how preparation has gone up until now, we fly out tomorrow so it'll be good to get on with it now", said Southgate. "But for us it's to play attacking football, to score, and that's important", he said.

Kane, 24, is the youngest player to be named captain of an English team for a World Cup tournament.

"We know we are not the finished article, in fact we're a long way from that".

Tottenham Hotspur kicks off the season this year with the International Champions Cup, which will see the team spend 10 days in the USA, playing against Roma in San Diego, Barcelona in Los Angeles and AC Milan in Minneapolis.

"The style is clear".

From the middle of June to the middle of July, 32 of the world's best footballing nations will be competing with each other in a bid to lift the ultimate sporting prize: the World Cup trophy.
