England aim for World Cup quarter-finals

England aim for World Cup quarter-finals”

Gareth Southgate can not wait to touch down in Russian Federation today and kick on with England's final World Cup preparations.

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 fearless in possession".

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

"There was a clear shift in the identity of the team, we went to a back three and people have been warmed by that, not only the young players in this squad, but the young players in the system, the success with the junior teams".

"There will be tough moments, and ups and downs".

Southgate remains unsure of what reception England will receive in front of the Russian fans, but says protocols have been discussed and put in place in the event of racism at the World Cup.

"Personally, that (scoring) record is something I want to change, and hopefully will this summer", Kane added.

"I've talked before about there being a disconnect between the supporters and the team and I've felt that there's different ways to bridge that".

"I don't think the players would want that because they have worked all their lives to play at a World Cup". It's the one competition everybody dreams of winning.

England manager, Gareth Southgate, named Kane as the team captain at the 2018 World Cup, and the player hopes to be the second English man to lift the World Cup after Bobby Moore who captained England in the 1966 World Cup.

'Everybody is looking forward to getting to the first game'.

"I think a lot has been said about staying in cliques and teams staying in teams, but I've not seen that at all here". They will play their opening game against Tunisia on June 18.
