England must believe Russian Federation will be different - Kane

England show their strengths and weaknesses against Nigeria

Henderson agrees with skipper Kane's view that England must adopt the mentality that they can win the World Cup, even though he is scarred by the experiences of his three previous tournaments - the Euros in 2012 and 2016 which sandwiched the World Cup in Brazil four years ago.

Jordan Pickford appears destined to start in goal for England at this summer's World Cup after being handed the number one shirt for the finals in Russian Federation.

"But it's tough to get into the World Cup, there's only 32 places".

England will be part of World Cup Group G alongside Belgium, Panama and Tunisia.

Southgate has yet to settle on his preferred starting team and fielded Jesse Lingard alongside fellow attacking midfielder Dele Alli on Saturday, providing England with pace and creativity that led to a string of first-half chances.

"It's hard to say what is a success because of what has happened in the past", he said.

Experience tells Martyn, the former Leeds United keeper, that if Pickford starts England's last warm-up game he will start under Southgate in Russian Federation.

Meanwhile, England manager Gareth Southgate is keeping his cards close to his chest as speculation continues over the identity of his World Cup goalkeeper.

"When the gaffer told me I was really pleased for Harry and he is a fantastic player. You've got plenty of big grounds around the country with thousands of people wanting to watch".

"For some reason, not a lot of us or not a lot of us believe in it". We will be stronger together and we want to achieve something special.

"We get on really well and we're pushing each other every day which is what is best for the team", Pope was quoted as saying by the Burnley Express. "We've got to enjoy the occasion and we can't wait to get out there and get started". "He is pretty chilled and likes the players to take ownership of themselves and the group - I think it has worked well so far", he said.
