Rashford shone in the latter and scored a superb opener in a man-of-the-match display, underlining his claims for a starting berth in Monday's Group G opener against Tunisia.

"The aim is to be aggressive and courageous in possession", Kane told British media.

Asked to sum up his own feelings about coaching his country on the biggest stage of all, he added: "I'm a very proud Englishman and I've said before that to play for my country was my only goal as a kid".

"I said to all of the team before the game "I expect to see mistakes tonight and if I don't there'd probably be a problem because we won't be trying to be as good as we might".

"We didn't want a third game", the former defender said last month. "Even if we have a disaster, we will learn - and you learn most when you get beaten", he said.

The United States will send more visiting supporters to the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation than any other nation, despite the failure of the national team to qualify for the tournament.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy is also thrilled to be at his first World Cup.

"We ask people to pay a lot of money to watch football".

‘Families Belong Together’ marches planned Saturday in NM
More than 16,000 had RSVP-ed on Facebook for the "Families Belong Together" march , and Daley Plaza began filling up by 10 a.m. Pramila Jayapal put out a call for protests less than two weeks ago, and they've been "overwhelmed" by the response.

It will be intriguing, though, to see how they cope with the pressure once the competition gets underway. Sometimes going into a big tournament is about not losing and being passive but, for us, it's about playing attacking football.

"If a bit more time was taken, a bit more patience, I believe I should still be the England manager". That's part of the game.

"We played a behind-closed-doors game in France (at the 1998 World Cup) with Glenn (Hoddle) against local opposition, which I thought worked quite well".

"I've got no concerns at all", the Manchester United man told Press Association Sport.

Possibly a lame excuse in England's defence - for the '74 and '78 World Cup finals - only 16 teams were in both showpieces.

Kane, who jetted off to Russian Federation with his team-mates on Tuesday, was still at school when Pochettino fouled Michael Owen in the 2002 World Cup, allowing David Beckham to score from the penalty spot and earn England a 1-0 group-stage win over Argentina. It's the one competition everybody dreams of winning.

Aside from the success in 1966, which unfortunately I was too young to remember, England's World Cup history is littered with failure and disappointment - 2-0 up against the West Germans in Mexico - Bobby Charlton was subbed in preparation for the semi-final before a comeback, which still tops many England World Cup horror lists.
