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

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

England begin their Group G campaign against Tunisia on Monday, before matches against Panama and Belgium.

"We are seeing now that this is a team that is enjoying each other's company, getting on well, very proud to represent their nation, that have some talent, a real desire and determination to play for England and are determined to play in a style that people are enjoying watching". I know what those tournament experiences can be like and we desperately want to bring that.

Kane, who will captain his country at the tournament, acknowledged that England have been "passive" and have focused too much on avoiding defeat in previous tournaments.

Roberto Martinez believes "thinker" Gareth Southgate has prepared England more effectively for the World Cup than his predecessors.

"The Under-17s World Cup win in particular came at a moment where the profile of our young players was really high".

"It's hard. I think this team is young, there is a mix between the less generation, the players that finish, not finished but getting to the older generation but they have good young players".

"Sometimes, going into a big tournament is about not losing and being passive but, for us, it's about winning the first game, winning the second game".

Injuries could play a part next season, so maybe keeping him, even if he does not start every game is the right way to go. "I have always been a player who wants to push players and make them and myself better". So that's big tournaments. "It's the one competition everybody dreams of winning", he said.

For instance, at a recently media day, all 23 players in the World Cup squad were available for journalists to speak to freely.

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.

"I would love to win everything with Tottenham but, for me, personally, the World Cup outweighs them all".
