England manager Gareth Southgate has said his players will fly to Russian Federation on Tuesday having started to build a bridge between the squad and a sceptical nation.

Kane, who says his mum cried when he was handed the captaincy by Southgate, does not expect a repeat of the woeful Euro 2016 campaign which saw them beaten by minnows Iceland in the last 16 and cost then manager Roy Hodgson his job.

After flying into Saint Petersburg, Gareth Southgate's squad headed to their base camp in the seaside town of Repino, 45 kilometres (30 miles) northwest of the city, where preparations will start for the Three Lions' opening game against Tunisia on Monday.

"I've talked before about there being a disconnect between the supporters and the team", Southgate said. We know everything else comes on the back of that.

"You can pick knocks up, there is one or two very close calls that we can see how we players are when we get into sessions here". We ask people to pay a lot of money to watch football.

"We have all got that mentality where you just want to win". If that means the gaffer thinks to help the team out I should play there I am all for it.

"But I'm a team player".

England haven't kicked off a major tournament with a win since all the way back in 2006 when a third-minute Paraguay own-goal sealed a 1-0 win to make a positive start to the World Cup in Germany.

"I have been playing professionally since I was 18 at right-back".

Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy are both included in England's 23-man World Cup squad.

The displays in the warm-up matches have been in contrast to England's performances in recent years, which critics say have been hallmarked by disjointed and often tiresome football - just 40,000 fans turned up for a friendly against Norway at Wembley in 2014, and some travelling fans booed a the end of a 4-0 win in Malta last year. Constantly trying to improve, playing in a style that we've used in the past year or so and that people have warmed to.

On Rashford's display, Three Lions boss Southgate said: 'What pleased me most is that he enjoyed his football tonight.
