However, Southgate acknowledges he has left himself open to stinging criticism if England crash out of the World Cup on Tuesday.

As it stands - thanks to a few quirky results - one side of the draw appears considerably more hard.

England´s forward Harry Kane celebrates with England´s midfielder Jordan Henderson (R) after scoring a penalty during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group G football match between England and Panama at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod on June 24, 2018.

"Whatever happens next week, the selection was the right decision as far as I'm concerned". Eric Dier captained the side.

He contradicted himself by essentially saying England is still growing ahead of a fixture in which it can't afford to be uncertain. Southgate will have a fully fit squad from which to choose, including Dele Alli who has recovered from a thigh strain, and is likely to revert to the lineup that confronted Tunisia in their first game at the finals.

British TV pundits were certain in their post-game assessments that the Three Lions' path to the semifinals is easier than the one Belgium received for winning the group.
