At least England look the part before the World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

England's campaign gets underway at the Volgograd Arena in, you guessed it, Volgograd.

Gareth Southgate and the England squad jet out to Russian Federation this week but received their own flying visit at St George's Park on Sunday.

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

For the final and most challenging group game, England travel to another cool yet unimaginatively named venue, the Kaliningrad Stadium.

England face Tunisia on June 18 and also play Panama and Belgium in Group G.

Sketchy claim of triple-lens 2018 iPhone schematic likely based on misunderstanding
Apple is expected to launch its new range of iPhones sometime in the third quarter if all goes to plan. This will use the multiple camera sensors that can be seen in the notch on the leaked schematics.

They do so in good spirits, with inter-camp harmony at a peak, no injuries to speak of and a pair of quietly encouraging friendly wins over Nigeria and Costa Rica to reflect on. We know everything else comes on the back of that.

The 23 squad members were joined by stand-by midfielder Jake Livermore in a game held on the Sir Bobby Charlton Pitch, where referee Anthony Taylor oversaw proceedings.

Players switched between the teams that wore England's white and black training tops, allowing Southgate to look at different combinations.

"We have listened to compelling interviews from Rio and Frank and Steven and we've used those to say we've got to make sure we put those club situations to one side, but I don't think there is that intense rivalry at the moment between our top clubs that there was then", he told reporters. "When there's been a third competitive game, there comes a point when the players are just trying to avoid injury really".

"But I think there was a shift [in public opinion] in November when we brought in some of the younger players". Actually at that point I'm not convinced they do.

"The past can help us and inform us but it shouldn't shape us and we've got to be our own team".
