England's Marcus Rashford misses World Cup training after knee injury

Rashford delivered a man-of-the-match display in England's final pre-World Cup friendly against Costa Rica at Elland Road last week, scoring a stunning opening goal from range for just his third global strike after 19 caps.

Southgate, whose team take on Tunisia in their first World Cup game in Volgograd on Monday, believes that has now been consigned to the past on the back of England's encouraging recent performances, including the victories against Costa Rica and Nigeria in their past two warm-up matches.

"He doesn't really like to be overloaded in midfield so, if he does see that, then I tuck in so we go as a back three".

"Is it my preferred position?"

"I'd love to win everything with Tottenham, but for me personally the World Cup outweighs them all".

With that clash in mind, De Bruyne has pinpointed former Liverpool star Raheem Sterling as the player he thinks could dominate at the tournament.


"I would be surprised if the majority of players did not say the World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world". "I captained my Sunday League team the Spurs youth team and occasionally wore the armband as vice-captain for Spurs", he said. "If that means the gaffer thinks to help the team out it is me playing there, I am all for it".

"It might give me a little bit of an opportunity, but it is about reading the game", Walker said.

England defender Kyle Walker is ready to sacrifice his preferred right-back spot and play as a centre-half at his first 2018 Soccer World Cup, the 28-year-old has said.

"Personally, that (scoring) record is something I want to change, and hopefully will this summer", Kane added.

"I've got a family that are going out there". I have to be professional.

"We are seeing now that this is a team that is enjoying each other's company, getting on well, very proud to represent their nation, that have some talent, a real desire and determination to play for England and are determined to play in a style that people are enjoying watching".
