England kick off their World Cup campaign when they take on Tunisia in Volgograd on June 19 before facing Panama five days later in Nizhny Novgorod and rounding out the group phase against Belgium in Kaliningrad on June 29.

"We flew back late, I was trying to relax the next day and sleep a little bit and then I went away on Monday - family time because I will not see them for a while".

The tweet, which blew up on social media, was captioned: "I still haven't booked any holidays".

"But it's tough to get into the World Cup, there's only 32 places".

First-half goals from Gary Cahill and captain Harry Kane helped England to victory at Wembley Stadium in their penultimate warm-up match before taking on Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in Group G in Russian Federation.

Federation Internationale de Football Association released the final squads of each of the World Cup's 32 teams on Monday, complete with shirt numbers, height and weight, and it listed Tottenham striker Kane at 98 kilograms (216 pounds).

"I think they've got some really talented young players, players who have stood out this season like Sterling, Kane".

"It's hard to say what is a success because of what has happened in the past", he said.

'I was really pleased with what Jordan did.

It's easy to see why so many fans have lost faith, with England now sitting in the unlucky 13th spot in FIFA's world rankings, but the squad is filled with young talent, and many English players are coming off the back of excellent seasons with their respective clubs. "We've got to stay focused on ourselves and not worry about the teams in the past". There are still a lot of things we need to improve on tactically.

"But you have to believe, you have to have that feeling that you can win it".

"For the players, whoever Gareth chooses, it's quite important to know where they stand", Martyn said. "We have a great group of lads who want be courageous and give it everything they have got".
