Gareth Southgate raring to go as Three Lions prepare to fly to Russia by Paul Miles Published

Southgate revealed Rashford will be assessed by medical staff, but is confident the injury is not too serious.

We've counted down the weeks and now only days remain before England take to the field at the 2018 World Cup.

Marcus Rashford could be open to a move away from Manchester United, on loan, according to The Shields Gazette (h/t The Daily Star).

The Three Lions leave for Russian Federation tomorrow before next Monday's Group G opener against Tunisia in Volgograd.

"We're pleased with how preparation has gone up until now, we fly out tomorrow so it'll be good to get on with it now", said Southgate.

But for me, I don't think it gets much bigger than the World Cup.

"We are obviously excited to be here now".

Here we give you every necessary detail about the games, each of which will be broadcast live on talkSPORT.

It will be the first World Cup appearance for the Tottenham striker, and Kane said that he wants to improve his scoring record in the big tournaments.

"It's going to be a gruelling adventure but we're very proud of what they are all doing".

"So to now be managing and leading my country to a World Cup is an extra special moment".

The displays in the warm-up matches have been in contrast to England's performances in recent years, which critics say have been hallmarked by disjointed and often tiresome football - just 40,000 fans turned up for a friendly against Norway at Wembley in 2014, and some travelling fans booed a the end of a 4-0 win in Malta last year.

"We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed our matches", he said.

Heading into this year's tournament, we've ranked every team in the field of 32 to give you an idea of how things might shake out in Russian Federation.

However, there were few locals on hand to welcome the team to their base other than a small group of excited young boys keen to catch a glimpse of some Premier League stars.
