Rashford to miss England training

Jordan Henderson: 'I hope I've done enough to earn a World Cup starting spot'

Southgate also began addressing the disconnect with fans and media. He's a fantastic player who had a fantastic game, ' said Kane.

Raheem Sterling will be the main support for Kane, maybe along with either Jesse Lingard, Dele Alli or even 22-year-old Ruben Loftus-Cheek if Southgate opts for a 3-4-3 formation.

It seems thousands of people will watch them arrive.

Manchester City duo John Stones and Kyle Walker were also sat together for the flight to Russian Federation.

"We're pleased with how preparation has gone up until now, we fly out tomorrow so it'll be good to get on with it now", said Southgate.

The England boss said: "I think people can see there is a humility about the group, and there is absolutely no reason why they shouldn't be either by the way".

Young, older than Wayne Rooney. remember, but still in shape to secure his passage to Russian Federation, sets an example Southgate wants others to follow.

Southgate, who experienced the pitfalls of global football when he missed a penalty in the shootout loss to old foes Germany in the Euro '96 semi-finals hosted in England, did not wish to heighten expectations which have so often been a crushing burden for the national side. Ambition and adventure too.

Southgate added: "I think there was a shift in November when we brought in some of the younger players".

"We have got to improve to reach the latter stages of a tournament and that is going to take a lot of hard work over the next few weeks and a huge commitment but I am seeing evidence that we are embracing that challenge". "We just wanted to get over here and settled to start to prepare for the games ahead", he said.

He spoke of "playing in that space between the opposition's defence and midfield" and of his admiration for Andres Iniesta. So we are all here with the same mentality, all wanting to win, all wanting to play. 'So as a group of players that is what we are going to do'.

England will play with either two or three central midfielders, depending if the team is deployed in a 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 formation, and they are likely to be functional, hard-working players.

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.

Trippier says it is simply a case of providing attacking colleagues like Kane with the necessary ammunition.

Their next session will be held at Spartak Zelenogorsk, a dedicated training base six miles from their ForRestMix Hotel.

That would mean starts for the likes of Harry Maguire over Gary Cahill, Jordan Henderson ahead of Eric Dier and Ashley Young at left wing-back. Encouraging draws in recent friendlies against Brazil, Germany and Italy show the English are heading in the right direction but they have been here before in the run-up to tournaments.
