Note spotted at training suggests Raheem Sterling could be dropped

England World Cup news Gareth Southgate defends Raheem Sterling despite poor goal record

England World Cup news Gareth Southgate defends Raheem Sterling despite poor goal record

Defender Kyle Walker said on Friday: "Steve cleared it up this morning in training and he's has apologised to us all, which we had a bit of banter with him about and that was it".

The Manchester United striker ended up being a second half substitute for Gareth Southgate's men as the Three Lions claimed a 2-1 win over Tunisia in their opening game in Russian Federation on Monday.

"Obviously any time, if we were to give the opposition the opportunity of having our team it's a disadvantage to us", the England boss said, insisting that the piece of paper wasn't actually the starting line-up.

"We won't be able to roll them over", Delph added.

England's only player giving cause for concern ahead of Sunday's second group G game against Panama is midfielder Dele Ali, who suffered a minor calf strain during Monday's 2-1 win against Tunisia. They try to make use of the pace they have.

- England are unbeaten in their last four World Cup games against CONCACAF nations (W2 D2), drawing the last two against United States of America in 2010 and Costa Rica in 2014.

"Ruben can twist and turn his way out of tight situations and, as I say, open a game up".

"It is going to be man versus man and we are not going to look at the names on the back of the England jerseys".

The direct Central Americans were well-beaten by Belgium in their opener and Walker said England know what they'll be up against.

"I mean I think always from the type of training that we do they have a good idea and clearly we had a team that played very well and won. We need to be compact and limit their space".

According to a report from the Sun, the German wants to bring Aston Villa's Jack Grealish to Anfield this summer in an attempt to add more creativity and guile to his midfield options.

After revealing the players had not been told the starting XI a couple of days in advance, as had been the case for the opening game against Tunisia, the Manchester City right-back asked the press to do the "polite" thing.

The 23-year-old, without an England goal since October 2015, has had to put up with a lot in the build-up to Russian Federation and was replaced by Rashford after 68 minutes in Volgograd.

England have been backed to beat Panama on Sunday - by a colony of World Cup-predicting ants.
