England to learn World Cup draw fate

Nabil Maaloul's Tunisia have been drawn in Group G at next year's World Cup along with England Belgium and Panama

They will then travel to Nizhny Novgorod on June 24 to take on Panama, with their final group fixture against Belgium on June 28 in Kaliningrad.

Belgium are 10 places ahead of England in the world rankings, but both teams went unbeaten through qualifying and their encounter on paper is one of the ties of the group stage.

The third pot of seeds saw England drawn against Tunisia, who they will play in their opening game in Volgograd on June 18.

"The interesting thing for us is starting later and what that might mean for us at the end of the season", he said. I asked God to avoid putting is in the first group because Ramadan finishes on June 14-15. "What I am looking forward to is being able to say "that is who we are playing" and looking at their previous games and getting on with preparing in earnest". "That needs a bit of working out now".

While the logistical challenges are considerable, Southgate admitted his young side will also need to learn how to deal with the expectations placed on them after they were handed a seemingly favourable draw.

United have the stronger defence and more reliable midfield, but Arsenal have a thrilling attack thanks to two truly world-class players.

The match also puts Tottenham team mates Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen against one another - which they marked with a Snapchat together captioned "Group Friends".

Belgium have beaten England only once in 21 meetings - back in 1936 - but the side that boasts Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku is a fearsome beast.

England secured their spot in Russian Federation after topping their qualifying group in a relatively easy run of games and Gareth Southgate will be hoping for another simple route to the Luzhniki Stadium for the World Cup final. "You know how important it is for us as Muslims". "When we have just come from two tournaments where Costa Rica knocked us out, and then Iceland, it would be folly for us not to be serious about our preparation and make sure our mentality is right", he said.

Southgate believes Belgium - managed by Roberto Martinez with Englishman Graeme Jones as his assistant - are among the favourites to win the trophy.

"And I think Gareth now has a few players pushing for places, which is good in a World Cup year". They have talented players.
