Southgate not anxious by Russian heat, Panama play down line-up gaffe

Not since 2006 have England enjoyed the serenity of winning both of their opening group games, but they need only down Panama on Sunday in Nizhny Novgorod to achieve that goal at Russian Federation 2018.

Southgate took the opportunity in his Friday press conference to condemn the leak by the press and effectively give his side's opponents the opportunity of seeing their line-up in advance.

The team, which could be seen clearly during England's training session on Thursday, has led manager Southgate to query whether the media are behind England's World Cup campaign, while Walker echoed his comments by suggesting the pictures should not have been published.

"We've got some young lads for who it's no doubt going to be just as challenging, in a different way, as it is to the senior lads who are used to playing".

For an England team that came to the World Cup with reduced expectations, things are setting up nicely.

Gareth Southgate has moved to quash the controversy over England's "leaked" training notes, likening the team's relationship with the media to a strained family holiday. "For me, it's no drama", he said.

"It was a list of 23 players and people have taken something from it which probably isn't correct". "It's an incredible achievement and they'll be wounded by what happened the other night and will want to respond and make it a tough game for us". Because we had the referees meeting and if we do put that forward to them and he doesn't agree, he can show us the yellow.

The Polish defence looked uncertain from the start, although the goal they conceded in the 37th minute was down to misfortune. Concerns were raised before the game about Senegal's lack of creativity up front and it was very obvious as the game wore on.

"I think there's a big performance coming from England and it's just bubbling".

Having first informed Southgate about the phrase he then revealed the embarrassing connotations - adding that England sides were seen as "ridiculous" and "hilarious" on Chinese social media site Webo.
