England football team to play 3-hole course in between World Cup games

Donegan penned the song in 1965 as the official tune to go along with the Football Association's mascot for the tournament.

The Red Arrows have given England a flypast to wish them good luck ahead of the World Cup.

"The past can help us and inform us but it shouldn't shape us and we've got to be our own team".

Should England reach their first World Cup final in 52 years, Southgate's heroes may well come up against world number one GERMANY in a repeat of the 1966 tournament.

Throughout the 2017/18 campaign, Rashford made a total of 52 appearances for the Red Devils across all competitions, scoring 13 goals and assisting a further nine, helping earn his place in England's 23-man World Cup squad.

England's newly appointed captain was speaking before the Three Lions depart for their base near St. Petersburg on Tuesday as preparations ramp up for their opening Group G fixture with Tunisia on Monday.

"What we want is, and I'm not going to give you a stage in the tournament. but, I'm going to give it away slightly, we haven't won a knockout game since 2006", the FA's chief executive Martin Glenn told the Daily Telegraph.

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

"But I always look at my game and see how I can get better".

"But our focus as a team has to be on the bits we can control".

Underscoring the importance of the tournament, Kane said that there are many big tournaments like Champions League and Premier League, but nothing is bigger than the World Cup for him.

And they have chosen a song by Glasgow-born Lonnie Donegan for the dubious honour, with the track known as World Cup Willie. "And if you win one, you win more".

If England finish second in Group G, they will face the victor of Group H which, according to world rankings, should be POLAND, although Colombia, Senegal and Japan are other potential opponents at this stage.
