Clean bill of health for England ahead of Tunisia opener

Clean bill of health for England ahead of Tunisia opener

The Three Lions look in fine fettle heading into Monday's Group G encounter in Volgograd, thanks to seamless, injury-free preparations that have brought hope and no little excitement.

According to Sky Sports, Jesse said: "Southgate has come in with the mentality to play with freedom, play without fear, and you will enjoy your time more. If a World Cup cannot inspire a nation, then I'm not sure what can", said the English FA technical director Dan Ashworth.

"We tried to put in as much tactical information in the early part of the week so that Sunday's session was about enjoyment, feeling the ball and being physically ready for the game".

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

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. Whatever the buzzwords, they mark the start of a new era for the Three Lions.

"No, nothing changes", Delph said of the striker.

Much has been made of the relaxed, close atmosphere among Southgate's men - in stark contrast to the recriminations that have followed numerous Three Lions' tournament exits over recent years.

"I think it is a big ask (to win) but everyone in the tournament has that fighting chance", he said.

"My family are incredibly patriotic".

"I said to all of the team before the game "I expect to see mistakes tonight and if I don't there'd probably be a problem because we won't be trying to be as good as we might". Southgate, though, seems determined to erase the fatalism that has come to define England in a 52-year wait for success at major worldwide tournaments.

The Football Association's secluded retreat at the forRestMix Club in Repino has been kitted out, among other things, with super-fast WiFi - which is just as well if the players need to do a bit of extra cramming ahead of kick-off.

"He is a great kid and I think he is playing terrifically well and I'd prefer if people focused on his form on the pitch, that's what's important".

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.

"We only progress as a collective". We couldn't be more excited to be joining forces with such a force in football like Steven too, whose commitment and passion for the game and the fans reflects ours so strongly.
