Delph: We already know England's XI for Tunisia tie

Tammy Abraham

England forward Marcus Rashford has suffered a "slight knock" in the final training session before heading to the World Cup in Russian Federation, manager Gareth Southgate said.

Some players are unburdened by previous major tournament failures and even those that have tasted disappointment are displaying confidence, with Harry Kane speaking of winning the World Cup hours after being unveiled as captain.

Ashley Young said he had no concerns over his family coming to Russian Federation, amid worries over racism after defender Danny Rose announced he had told his family not to travel to the tournament.

There is also gratitude towards Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho off the back of his best season to date.

Should Maguire get the nod against the Eagles of Carthage, he would likely line up alongside Barnsley-born John Stones and fellow Sheffield boy Kyle Walker in the back three. "I think they'll be watching us".

England's young guns are talking about emulating Andres Iniesta and Dani Alves but four years ago they watched the World Cup on the back of spells at Burnley, Brighton, Carlisle and York.

"It's a big match", he said on Tuesday in his capacity as an RT pundit, quipping: "It's not bad that for me (that) my players go on holiday".

"I don't think it will affect me mentally. It could be changed, but from the set-up we've done it's pretty clear to see who is probably going to be starting".

One of Gareth Southgate's goals as England manager, other than instil a style of play and give the team an identity, appears to be to improve the squad's relationship with the media.

"I'd like to go and see St Petersburg", the 24-year-old added.

"You have to play against the team in front of you and it is going to be a tough task but we are fully prepared for that".

England won the 1966 World Cup, but has only reached the semifinals of a tournament twice since then.

"You have to be courageous enough to tackle those big issues whatever arises - and I am ready to do that". However, they will now be able to breathe a little easier as the forward took to Twitter to provide an update on his current injury status. I think they're a great team, they've made the right decision and I hope they get back to the level they were at before.
