Lingard confident of 'fearless' England showing at World Cup

Rashford misses England training again due to knee injury

Manchester United and England defender Phil Jones says there is a good team spirit in the Three Lions camp, and it bodes well for success at the 2018 World Cup.

Talking to England's YouTube channel Southgate said: "The players know the team, so I think that's helpful that everything's settled, they know their jobs, and the guys that aren't in the team know their jobs, and have prepared well".

The team has won plaudits for its positive approach in the warmup games and there's widespread respect for coach Gareth Southgate.

Self-deprecating humour and honesty have been common features of a reign that has seen Southgate attempt to change England's on-field philosophy and off-field perception.

"For the first five minutes of the opening game anything can happen but it is not going to decide whether we go through in the group or not".

Southgate feels that the strong bonds, tightness in the group and the way in which they showed their mettle and kept going to the end of games in qualifying augurs well for their time in the World Cup spotlight.

"We need to get the nation back with us after the disappointment of the Euros".

"The Premier League is probably the best league in the world and for a lot of our players, the peformances they've reached this season have been phenomenal".

"Tunisia will want to put an upset on the cards but we won't underestimate them because we know they're a good team".

"I mean the goal was world-class, really, but he's teasing defenders by the touchline and his performance wasn't ideal, but he was enjoying his football and that was great to see".

"I don't think it would affect me mentally", Delph said.

The North Africans were unbeaten in their World Cup qualifying campaign but had to endure a nervy finish when they drew 0-0 with strugglers Libya to edge out the Democratic Republic of Congo.

That leaked line-up would also mean Delph started his first major tournament on the bench. Harry Kane says they must be fearless.

Southgate made some big calls when selecting his 23-man World Cup squad and he is trying to get his players to take more risks on the pitch.

Such considered tutelage coupled with the promise at his disposal has brought encouragement ahead of the World Cup, but it is underpinned by common sense.

"We have an idea of the team now", Manchester City's Delph said on Saturday.
