       England captain Harry Kane shows his focus in training ahead of Saturday's game with Nigeria

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill celebrated his return to England's squad and stepped up his claims for a starting place against Tunisia in Volgograd on 18 June by opening the scoring with a powerful header after only seven minutes.

England's midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek (L) vies with Nigeria's midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo (C) and Nigeria's defender Bryan Idowu (R) during the worldwide friendly football match between England and Nigeria at Wembley stadium in London on June 2, 2018.

Sterling clearly has the support of the majority of the football-watching public and he will be hoping to repay that in kind over the coming month.

"Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, who plays for Leicester in the Premier League, was missing due to injury and the coach said:" My friend Claude Puel (Leicester manager) gave me information and we are following the protocol given to us by Leicester City. "We've reassured him - that's what friends are for, that's what team-mates are for", he said.

England's players and management are rallying around Raheem Sterling to ensure the tattoo controversy surrounding the forward doesn't affect his mindset heading into the World Cup.

Southgate is expected to play a three-man defence, having used the system in recent matches.

Gareth Southgate's men looked as if they would cruise to victory as they went 2-0 up in the first half, courtesy of goals from Gary Cahill and Harry Kane. "But actually that wasn't a decision after he started to come under fire from every other direction". I have played here many times in so many finals and have managed to have great success here and win pretty much all of the finals I have played.


"We were deservedly a couple of goals to the good at half-time".

"Today, we played Ighalo and he was fantastic upfront with his style of play".

"People will see stuff in the wrong way", he said.

"Our first objective is to qualify from this group". "I wouldn't necessarily say that that was the side today that starts against Tunisia, but clearly, it wouldn't be far away".

ESPN's Alison Bender gets the thoughts of England fans outside Wembley on how deep a run the Three Lions can make in the World Cup. It could have gone against us, but we got our composure back.

"In the second half we corrected some mistakes and played a lot better".

Sterling later broke the offside trap but could not find a colleague with a low cross before firing narrowly over when picked out by Jesse Lingard towards the end of the first half.
