Gareth Southgate sees 'shift' in England supporters' attitude toward team

England face Tunisia in their opening Group G fixture on Monday, before taking on Panama and Belgium.

Kane says the current squad will bring a fresh approach to this summer's World Cup, though, saying: "The aim is to be aggressive and courageous in possession".

"But I think there was a shift [in public opinion] in November when we brought in some of the younger players".

Traditionalists will always see the World Cup as the greatest stage for footballers but there has been less spark around England in recent times.

The showpiece event in Russian Federation will be Kane's first World Cup, having previously played for England at Euro 2016 and in the 2015 Under-21 European Championship, but the Tottenham striker wants to break his duck of never scoring at a major tournament. The players were told to take as few devices as possible, to avoid public wifi and not to use the memory sticks that are often handed out at major tournaments.

"We have a lot of attacking flair that can do some damage". In the end, we want to entertain where we possibly can.


"We are seeing a team that is enjoying each other's company, getting on well, is very proud to represent the nation".

Donegan penned the song in 1965 as the official tune to go along with the Football Association's mascot for the tournament. "But for us it's about winning the first game, second game and to take that attitude to the World Cup". That's part of the game. "I want to score in tournament football and that's what I will try and do".

"It's hard to look beyond the World Cup".

"That's not just me being obviously slightly biased because I worked with him at Sunderland and Everton, but everyone at Everton saw him as the best and most consistent performer in the entire season. It's the one competition everybody dreams of winning", he said.

The 1966 World Cup winners failed to get out of the group in 2014, when they were defeated by Italy and Uruguay, and lost 4-1 to Germany in the round of 16 in 2010.
