Southgate's Lions are on their way to Russian Federation

They play Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in the qualifying group stage.

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.

Southgate has quietly overseen a changing of the guard with England, however, by promoting young players and overlooking the likes of Wayne Rooney, Joe Hart, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere and he believes that England will travel to Russian Federation having already pressed the reset button with the fans.

"I would say it is different", Young said. "We have a lot of attacking flair that can do some damage".

One of Gareth Southgate's goals as England manager, other than instil a style of play and give the team an identity, appears to be to improve the squad's relationship with the media.

But Southgate insists that his players are primarily determined to entertain and ensure that England at least enjoys a feel-good factor during the tournament.

"Marcus took a slight knock, but nothing too serious, so we will have a look at that ahead of tomorrow's session which is open for everybody to see, but other than that, everybody came through fine", Southgate said in an interview with BBC Sport at St Petersburg airport.

"Sometimes, going into a big tournament is about not losing and being passive but, for us, it's about winning the first game, winning the second game".

"We're proud to be here, we will work hard, be energetic".
