All the best reaction as England draw Belgium, Panama and Tunisia

All the best reaction as England draw Belgium, Panama and Tunisia

"We are looking forward to it".

Their first fixture is against Tunisia on June 18, with Panama next and the mighty Belgians 10 days after the opener.

France, Australia, Peru and Denmark make up Group C, with Group D perhaps the closest to a so-called "group of death" as it contains Argentina, Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria.

"Yes, a couple of them had a taste of it at the last tournament, but many of them will not feel that weight and burden that a lot of the players have carried over a good few tournaments over the years". They will face Belgium on June 28 in Kaliningrad in a thrilling conclusion to the group stage.

The most hotly anticipated match in Group H will be England against Belgium, a game likely to feature a large number of Premier League players, from Kevin De Bruyne to Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku, and they are coached by Roberto Martínez.

That was the Carthage Eagles' very first game at the finals but they have failed to win any of their 11 World Cup games since - the longest winless run of any team in Russian Federation next year.

The same applies to Panama, who snuck into the finals at the expense of the United States courtesy of their "ghost goal" against Costa Rica. "The average age of this Tunisian squad is 26 and despite meeting England, we have a great chance of reaching the second round".

In terms of Gareth Southagate's England side, their group is most likely to be made up of Costa Rica (17% chance), Panama (15.5% chance), and Brazil or Argentina (both a 20% chance). Southgate's under-stated approach will help, however, with the former England midfielder not prone to over-hyping his team.

Now 61, he coached his native Colombia at the 1998 World Cup in France.

"Dele Alli and Harry Kane are exceptional players".

"We've obviously not been following their games in our qualifying phase".

Question marks remain over England's ability to dictate a game from midfield and keep possession against the stronger teams but nobody is realistically expecting them to win the competition.
