England make low-key arrival in Russian Federation

Get to know England's World Cup squad with 'The Lions' Den'

Ever since England won the World Cup in 1966 and thus set unrealistically high expectations for every squad that proceeded them, the relationship between the media and the England team has grown increasingly toxic.

Southgate's decision, Walker said, may even open up a chance for him to refine his skills during the World Cup.

Both Rio Ferdinand and Steven Gerrard claimed the reason they and the others who made up the so-called "golden generation" fell short at successive finals was they could not shake off their different club rivalries when they joined up with their England team-mates.

Usually the subject of intense media scrutiny, England's players have already become the brunt of jokes on social media, where the Twitterati laid into England's suits when they posed for a group photo.

How would England fare against Spain?

It remains to be seen whether Rashford returns to full training on Thursday, nevertheless Southgate is confident the Manchester United star will be available for their World Cup opener in Volgograd.

The filters are integrated into the after-treatment system and trap ultrafine particulates as the exhaust gases pass through. Although adaptive suspension isn't new to Jaguar , it wasn't available with the E-Pace when it was launched previous year .

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. France and Portugal are other possible opponents at this stage - as are England's Euro 2016 conquerors Iceland. "Across three weeks, we have been really pleased to get the 23 we picked through all of the sessions".

Will England come up against Germany's Mesut Ozil in Russian Federation?

Success in that fixture would take England into the last eight, with potentially GERMANY - likely winners of Group F ahead of Mexico, Sweden and South Korea - lying in wait. Will these veterans treat their first, and likely last, World Cup like a victory lap or a springboard to greatness?

If England finish second in their group, they'll play the winners of Group H - Poland are first seeds.

Make it this far and Southgate's side might have to beat BRAZIL in the final to get their hands on the trophy.
