Trippier says Kane is a great leader on and off the pitch

Roberto Martinez's side head to Russian Federation to face England, Tunisia and Panama in Group G.

Kane says the current squad will bring a fresh approach to this summer's World Cup, though, saying: "The aim is to be aggressive and courageous in possession".

"It's different now. I think if you asked every single player what the difference is now they would say that we are prepared as a team for every scenario".

Let's hope the Three Lions are as impressive in their football kits against Tunisia in their World Cup opener on Monday night.

England have arrived at their training base in Repino, near St. Petersburg, to begin their World Cup preparations ahead of their Russian Federation 2018 opener against Tunisia on Monday.

Fran Jones, Head of Partnerships, Tottenham Hotspur, said: "As a Club, we are privileged to have millions of supporters across the world who travel far and wide to support the team". That's what we are trying to instil into the team.

The English striker reassured the fans about their biggest fear, Penalties, saying "We have been practicing penalties, not every session, but every now and then the coaches will throw it in at the end of the session; when we are maybe a little bit worn out in games after extra-time, the lads are exhausted, that's when it's going to happen". That is number 1, first and foremost. I've always felt you go through spells.

"We ask people to pay a lot of money to watch football". That's part of the game.

The organisation has also produced an online blog on the Be on the Ball: World Cup 2018 website to offer advice for travelling fans.

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

"It's the one competition that everybody dreams of winning".

Can Belgium's Golden Generation deliver on the world's biggest stage?

"And I would be surprised if the majority of players did not say the World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world".
