Gareth Southgate wants England to 'send people to work happy'

Gareth Southgate wants England to 'send people to work happy'

England's squad and manager Gareth Southgate fly to Russian Federation on Tuesday to settle into their training base in Repino, just outside St Petersburg.

The 24-year-old is expected to start in goal for England on June 18 against Tunisia, as The Three Lions jet out to Russian Federation for this summer's World Cup.

"But other than that, everybody came through fine".

The Three Lions leave for Russian Federation tomorrow before next Monday's Group G opener against Tunisia in Volgograd.

"We are obviously excited to be here now".

"We worked together on ITV during the Euros in Poland and Ukraine and we got on really well and share a similar outlook".

"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".

Ahead of the commencement of the 2018 Fifa World Cup, former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has picked the best eleven players to emerge from Russian Federation.

England's arrival at their hotel was met with a strong security and media presence.

The single was the soundtrack to England's World Cup win in 1966.

"We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed our matches", said Southgate before departing for Russian Federation.

However, impressive displays in warm-up wins over Nigeria and Costa Rica have given some hope that England could win a knockout game for the first time at any major tournament for 12 years.

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

'We had a lot of heartache in the past, but I am very proud to represent my country.'
