Southgate: Germany's exit has no bearing on England

Adjust Comment Print

In the form of captain Harry Kane, England have Russia's top goalscorer so far with five, and the Tottenham talisman is likely to start against Belgium.

Southgate appears to be gesturing towards saying yes.

Kane could still partner Vardy in attack, but it understood the Leicester man IS playing.

Eric Dier, Gary Cahill, Danny Rose and even Trent Alexander-Arnold could start.

The left hand side of the draw is stacked with quality.

England is now leading the group, but only on the "fair play" tiebreaker, meaning Belgium could still win the group even if the match ends in a draw.

"We came here for more, so it wouldn´t be a good result for us not to reach the second round", Pekerman said. I don't think it (Germany's exit) has any bearing on us.

"We're going to face tougher challenges in the next few games and at the moment we can't consider ourselves a top team until we start to beat one of those teams", said Southgate.

England's manager is wary of his memories of the 2002 World Cup when he did not play a single minute and, while he wished his team-mates well, ultimately found it a frustrating time.

That was despite the fact England have not won a knockout game since the World Cup in 2006.

"Best to focus on tomorrow".

England fan Will Tomlinson, 34, who has travelled to Russian Federation, said he hoped for an English influx as the team progressed through the tournament. "I'm looking forward to seeing us play again".

Kane has been on record to say he wants to play as he hunts down history.

Roberto Martinez has already indicated that he will ring the changes against England. The most important thing is always winning games, and if my goals help my team win then that's the ideal situation.

"It's going to be six or seven players".

"I would rather him on the bench and then coming on for the last 20 minutes, half an hour", Campbell said to Sky Sports News.

"Can you imagine the confidence England will have then!?"

Ahead of the tournament, there was little fanfare around England - a change from previous competitions where pundits at home believed that they should be genuine contenders.

"From your legs to your mental approach, I think it all factors in".

Despite a huge scare for Lionel Messi´s Argentina, who needed a late goal from Marcos Rojo to edge through to the knockout phase on Tuesday, all of the tournament´s remaining big guns are through to the last 16 in Russian Federation.
