Budweiser pledges free beer if England win World Cup

Geoff Hurst earned a 1-0 win over Romania in the first group game in 1970 while on England's next World Cup appearance in 1982, they made a truly electric start as Bryan Robson scored what was then the fastest goal in World Cup history after 27 seconds.

"They're ready", Southgate said on the England team's YouTube channel.

The Manchester United forward has put that down to Southgate, who has given the green light for his team to express themselves on the biggest stage in Russian Federation.

England did their first fully-closed training session at Spartak Zelenogorsk on Saturday morning, when Southgate focused on tweaking the side for Monday's match against the North Africans.

Marcus Rashford will train with England on Friday as manager Gareth Southgate fine-tunes his preparations for the World Cup opener with Tunisia.

Southgate has taken a pretty young squad with him to the worldwide tournament with Ashley Young the oldest member but there's still excitement on how far they can go.

"I think it's going to be an exciting time to watch these boys play". I think we have a good opportunity because of the lack of expectation on the team.

England opens their World Cup against Tunisia today as a bit of an unknown.

The first two opponents in Group G, Tunisia and Panama, will likely try to limit the opportunities for breaks, reduce space and slow the tempo. "The World Cup is another step above the Euros". It is also great for the fans as they see more of an insight into what we do and how these things go down.

"I mean the goal was world-class, really, but he's teasing defenders by the touchline and his performance wasn't flawless, but he was enjoying his football and that was great to see". But we used to know each other and speak.

"A lot of people messaged me to say thank you, that they know someone who is going through this or has been through that and that I've helped them and given them the confidence to express themselves", Rose said.

England's Harry Kane answers a question at a press conference for the 2018 soccer World Cup, at the Volgograd Arena in Volgograd, Russia, Sunday, June 17, 2018.

England have managed only six knock-out wins at major tournaments since being crowned world champions in 1966, but Delph believes this group can match even the most formidable opponents.
