Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford will have an injury assessed on Wednesday, said England manager Gareth Southgate as his side touched down in Russian Federation for the World Cup on Tuesday.

Southgate's team, who face Belgium, Tunisia and Panama in Group G, head to the World Cup having failed to live up to expectations at recent tournaments, with the 1966 world champions last reaching the quarterfinal stage at Germany 2006.

He struggled for form during England's dismal Euro 2016 campaign when they were knocked out by Iceland in the Round of 16.

Former England and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand also said recently that he cherishes his club successes and considers them more important to him than anything he did for England.

"I've talked before about there being a disconnect between the supporters and the team and I've felt that there's different ways to bridge that. The FA have spoken to us security-wise and I've got every confidence in them and with family going out there". We ask people to pay a lot of money to watch football.

"On the big occasions he has the confidence - that is why I think he will light up the World Cup".

Southgate added: "I think there was a shift in November when we brought in some of the younger players".

How far can England progress in this summer's World Cup?

Let us know in the comments.

"I'm confident it won't happen (again) - I won't say 100 per cent because you never know in football - but in this team we wear our heart on our sleeve". Our focus as a team has to be on the bits we can control: constantly trying to improve, playing in a style that we've used in the a year ago or so, and that people have warmed to. Constantly trying to improve, playing in a style that we've used in the past year or so and that people have warmed to.

On Rashford's display, Three Lions boss Southgate said: 'What pleased me most is that he enjoyed his football tonight.
