World Cup: England Face Belgium Panama Tunisia – Moscow here we come

England have been drawn with Belgium, Panama and Tunisia in Group G at next year’s Fifa World Cup in Russia.

Gareth Southgate’s men will begin their tournament against Tunisia on Monday, 18 June (19:00 BST) in Volgograd.

They will then face World Cup debutants Panama in Nizhny Novgorod on 24 June (13:00 BST) before playing top seeds Belgium four days later in Kaliningrad (19:00 BST).

The 2018 tournament takes place in 12 stadiums across Russia between 14 June and 15 July.

“We need to find out more about Tunisia and Panama as we haven’t been tracking them,” Southgate told BBC Radio 5 live.

“We know everything about Belgium. I think that will capture the imagination back home as they have so many players in our league. They have probably the best group of players they’ve ever had.

“My experience of tournaments is you need to get a result in all three matches. In the past we’ve assumed we’ll be in certain rounds but we need to make sure we get out of our group.”

There is a lot of excitement among football fans in England.  The team is going to Russia.  And they’ve heard that Russians have been told they are not to hit the fans.  So, they should enjoy some brilliant football.
