England manager Gareth Southgate and Harry Kane

“I think, in my mind, my gauge of success would be that we come back from the tournament with the fans proud of how we’ve played and that means we’ll have played well and won some matches,” said Southgate. “So that’s my focus, to focus on the performances and to constantly improve on the performances.”

England’s Harry Kane sees no reason for the Three Lions to worry about their World Cup opponents and groups.

“I’m not one to really think about trying to avoid teams,” said Kane. “If you want to win a big tournament, you’re going to have to play the best teams sooner or later.We’re positive, but we’re not getting too ahead of ourselves. We know we’ve still got a lot of work to do and we’ve got some great friendly games coming up between now and the finals.”
