Deezer said in a statement: "A survey of 1,000 England supporters, commissioned by Deezer in celebration of its new Football Fever channel, reveals 60 per cent believe an official song has a positive effect on the national team".

He struggled for form during England's dismal Euro 2016 campaign when they were knocked out by Iceland in the Round of 16. It's fantastic they are raising money for really good causes.

"It's hard to look beyond the World Cup. We have a lot of attacking flair that can do some damage". "The most important is the way you play, and your performances and your results", Southgate said.

Belgium were dealt an injury blow in their World Cup warm-up match against Costa Rica as Chelsea's Eden Hazard limped off with 20 minutes remaining after sustaining a suspected dead leg.

"I'm confident it won't happen - I won't say 100 per cent because you never know in football - but in this team we wear our heart on our sleeve. The FA have spoken to us security-wise and I've got every confidence in them and with family going out there".

England's squad and manager Gareth Southgate fly to Russian Federation on Tuesday to settle into their training base in Repino, just outside St Petersburg. There was a clear shift in the identity of the team, we went to a back three and people have been warmed by that, not only the young players in this squad, but the young players in the system and the success with the junior teams.

The English youngster is one of the brightest players in the country and this is a problem for us given that we can not start him in most of the games.

"What people have seen is the way we want to play - and we definitely want to be an intelligent team in terms of tactical approach and dealing with different stakes and stages in games".

England's squad arrived in Russian Federation on Tuesday and will train in Repino ahead of their Group G opener against Tunisia next Monday.
