Harry Kane says England will be 'aggressive and brave' at World Cup

A 53-year-old song written by a Scot has been promoted as England's "secret weapon" for the World Cup.

"I think there was a shift in public opinion in November when we brought in some of the younger players", said Southgate.

Should the England starlet be forced to sit out a series of World Cup matches matches he will undoubtedly be a great miss for his team, with the young striker most recently netting a sensational strike in the final World Cup warm-up match against Costa Rica.

Deezer said in a statement: "A survey of 1,000 England supporters, commissioned by Deezer in celebration of its new Football Fever channel, reveals 60 per cent believe an official song has a positive effect on the national team". But for us it's to play attacking football, to score, and that's important.

Kane, 24, is the youngest player to be named captain of an English team for a World Cup tournament.

Early exits in the group stages at the 2014 World Cup and in humiliating fashion to Iceland at Euro 2016 have tempered expectations England can end a 52-year wait to win the World Cup.

"We know we are not the finished article, in fact we're a long way from, but I think people see signs of progress and enjoy watching us and the manner in which we try to play". Sending him out on loan would not be a bad idea for his development, however, losing a player such as this for an entire season would hurt us. As such, Southgate has been reluctant to be drawn into talking about England's chances of winning the competition.

"Ultimately we know we'll be judged on results but we have to focus on the processes", he said.

"We worked together on ITV during the Euros in Poland and Ukraine and we got on really well and share a similar outlook".

"We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed our matches", said Southgate before departing for Russian Federation.
