Southgate dislocated his shoulder on his team's day off while out jogging close to their training camp near the beach resort of Repino in the west of Russian Federation.

In fact media from around the world were in the same training session, so the fact that Steve Holland allowed his notebook to be photographed is a mistake that could have been picked up by anyone around the world.

England manager Gareth Southgate may be considering a line-up change and it might not be good news for Raheem Sterling.

"That bought us more pressure because we were able to get more set plays into their box, so I thought the movement of the front four and the two boys that came on was a real problem for them".

Southgate returned to the England camp for a meeting with his players, who were surprised when he walked in with his right arm in a sling.


Southgate told the Football Association website. We could have just gone about our day normally, said hello and gone for dinner at the training ground.

"Because of this. To be at a World Cup with England, wow".

The Three Lions kicked off their campaign in Russian Federation with a 2-1 win over Tunisia on Monday thanks to a last-gasp header from captain Harry Kane.

Southgate's side must be wary of conceding throw-ins in risky positions as this will be bring the danger of Adolfo Machado into play.

"We have got such a great support team and they were there very quickly".


Ruben Loftus-Cheek was marked down as Alli's replacement, and it looks like the Chelsea youngster has managed to play his way into the side after an impressive showing from the bench against Tunisia.

He is set to be replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek who impressed in a cameo role against Tunisia as England snatched a last-gasp victor.

"I didn't realise it at the time, but my mum was hustling in her own way, trying to make a better life for us".

"I've gradually seen over the last two years, in a humble way, I think he's really got to grips with everything that's involved and gained in confidence".
