Gareth Southgate sees 'shift' in England supporters' attitude toward team

1528712498_2f0f9

Welcome to the World Cup.

Marcus Rashford missed England's first training session in Russian Federation on Wednesday as a precaution after picking up a knee strain.

Rashford sat out on the advice of England's medical staff after sustaining what manager Gareth Southgate described on Tuesday as a "slight knock" during the squad's final training session at St George's Park, but the problem is not expected to affect his availability for Monday's opening World Cup match against Tunisia in Volgograd. France and Portugal are other possible opponents at this stage - as are England's Euro 2016 conquerors Iceland.

The former Crystal Palace and Everton boss feels he should still be in charge of England and, in a BBC documentary to be aired on Sunday, said: "Jealous is what I feel".

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 have to manage the game correctly and see what we are doing in the game". We ask people to pay a lot of money to watch football.

Rafael Nadal, the King of Clay, Wins His 11th French Open Title
For the 22-year-old Czechs, it was their first Slam title. "I had a tough moment in the third set when I had a bit of cramp". Considered to be declining two years ago, Nadal and friendly rival Roger Federer have now won the last six grand slams.

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

Despite the improving relations with the supporters and more optimistic mood within the country, few associated with England expect the team to win the World Cup on July 15.

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.

"We are just trying to improve every day we work together". Ultimately, we know we'll be judged on results but we have to focus on the processes. "We want to take this tournament head on". 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 previous year or so, and that people have warmed to.
