England's players have been told the starting line-up for their World Cup opener against Tunisia.

"I have said from the off I wasn't comfortable with the manner in which I took the reins, but I have enjoyed the responsibility".

"We won't be able to roll them over", Delph added.

"As long as your mindset is clear, you know what you need to do, you understand the game plan and what your role is, you're pretty clear in what you need to do".

England go into this summer's World Cup on a four-match winless run in the competition - but history suggests they can quickly buck the trend.

England's Harry Kane, smiles as he answers a question at a press conference for the 2018 soccer World Cup, at the Volgograd Arena in Volgograd, Russia, Sunday, June 17, 2018.

He said: "I hope my own experiences are providing them with some context".

Having been under the assumption Rooney would captain the England team through their qualifiers for Russian Federation, his departure surprised many - including his teammate Rose.

"It's his calmness, the way he handles situations within the group and hard situations that always occur before tournaments", said midfielder Eric Dier.

"My family are incredibly patriotic".

On the importance of late goals, England manager Southgate told The Yorkshire Post: "They are things we have talked about".

"To have played for England in major tournaments and now managing England is of course a huge honour".

Lingard believes the mentality Gareth has installed in the squad will help them go far in Russian Federation but has called for his teammates to take things one step at a time.

"I don't think it would affect me mentally".

The United attacker has insisted though that there's no reason they both can't play together which is certainly a prospect Southgate has considered before when perhaps facing stubborn opposition. The pace at which fans emptied the shelves shows just how excited and hopeful supporters are for the FIFA World Cup™ and England's chances in the tournament.

Expectations may be lower this time around but Gerrard believes Southgate's bold approach and decision-making will only benefit the squad.

"So, although it's important Harry is a big player for us, we have to be about the collective".

"We are a close bunch but once training starts it's fiery, it's very spicy", he said. "That's been the mentality from the day we started and will go right through the tournament".
