Southgate wants England players to entertain nation's fans

Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard joke after a past game

Southgate said: 'We're pleased with how preparation has gone up until now.

If England finish second in Group G, they will face the victor of Group H which, according to world rankings, should be POLAND, although Colombia, Senegal and Japan are other potential opponents at this stage.

"I want to score in tournament football and that's what I will try and do", the England captain said.

Harry Kane hopes a shift in mentality will help England have a successful World Cup in Russian Federation. "We have a lot of attacking flair that can do some damage".

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.

Despite England taking the lead from the penalty spot through Wayne Rooney, Iceland still went on to win 2-1 to progress into the quarter-finals at the expense of a star-studded English side.

"You can pick knocks up, there is one or two very close calls that we can see how we players are when we get into sessions here".

England will be staying at the ForRest Mix Club in Repino, 19 miles from St Petersburg, with their training base a few miles away in the village of Zelenogorsk. The organisation has also produced an online blog on the Be on the Ball: World Cup 2018 website to offer advice for travelling fans.

"But for us it's about winning the first game, second game and to take that attitude to the World Cup". "I don't think we were prepared for every eventuality".

"There was a clear shift in the identity of the team, we went to a back three and people have been warmed by that, not only the young players in this squad, but the young players in the system, the success with the junior teams".

"We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed those matches", he said.
