England failed to get out of the group stages in Brazil four years ago, but Kane says Gareth Southgate's squad will not be thinking about past World Cup failures.

"Whatever we do here isn't going to change what is happening all around the world", Rose said.

But Southgate, while defending Rose's position, said the cost of walking off would be too much.

"We've got to stay focused on ourselves and not worry about the teams in the past". But also the guys who oversee all the travel have made a big point of how important it is to come here and we are really looking forward to it.

Not officially retired from worldwide football, he scored six goals for Stoke as they were relegated from the Premier League and let us all know he's still got it with a ridiculous trickshot on holiday.

"You are the only people who know about a lot of this stuff (the written press)".


It was claimed that Kane's official weight was 98 kgs ahead of his first ever World Cup, with only Panama's Roman Torres coming in heavier than the Spurs front man at 99 kgs.

Much has been made of the youthful squad who will represent the Three Lions in Russian Federation, which is the youngest England party to travel to a World Cup since Chile in 1962. "His goal scoring record's been phenomenal in the last few seasons, so we're delighted to see him get amongst the goals - not that he needs any confidence because his finishing is unbelievable".

Southgate has promised to start five of his Yorkshire-born contingent in Leeds - Fabian Delph, Vardy, Harry Maguire and Danny Rose are all likely to get their chance with one of Kyle Walker and John Stones keeping their spots in defence. "You either select players or you choose your system and pick the best people to fit into it".

Very often, worldwide players have not started off at a big club.

And he added: "I'm lucky that England gave me that opportunity to get away, refresh my mind and I'll always be grateful to them. I'm fine with whatever may or may not happen, and I like to think I'll be able to deal with it in the right way".
