England discover their group opponents for Russia

England discover their group opponents for Russia

They'll then meet Panama - who are appearing in the tournament for the first time - before a clash with Belgium in their final Group G match in Kaliningrad.

Gareth Southgate's side were not among the top seeds, meaning they featured in pot two during the proceedings.

On Friday, the World Cup draw also pitted the North Africans against Belgium and Panama.

"But even the draw today will be exciting for the fans".

"Belgium are ranked fifth in the world (rankings) - and are one of the great nations in the world, not only in Europe".

"We have a group chat where there is always banter flying".

"The interesting thing for us is starting later and what that might mean for us at the end of the season", he said.

"We haven't done as much preparing on the African teams yet so now that's what we can focus in on".

Iceland drew a brutal match in its first World Cup
We are realistic, we wait for the draw and afterwards, we will organise our planning and our friendly games. "World Cup baby", Balogun wrote.

Southgate is likely to be bold and give youth a chance, but the games against Tunisia and Panama will pose different challenges than the more obvious test that Belgium will pose and sometimes, experience is a greater commodity than youthful exuberance against dogged, well-organised opponents.

"Belgium will be favourites even to win the World Cup, but it is the ideal game to see how good this English team is".

"To now have the chance to lead my country into that same game, same fixture, first game of the World Cup, is something I'm hugely proud of".

"It is a game where there are no secrets - no secrets about Belgium from England or for us about the England team".

"I think, as a group, we've got to be able to take a step forward".

"Now it is just down to us to repay the faith that he has put into us".

"We have a really good group of players, 25 players are now in the British game so are very well known", Martinez added.

"England have got a lot better this year, especially after appointing a new coach and fielding young talent".
