'No drama' for Southgate after England team sheet leak

England training team sheet

But Walker says Panama will match England physically and that Gareth Southgate's side are prepared to alter their tactics slightly to deal with Sunday's opponents.

Having only lost to Germany and France in their last 20 fixtures, they are clear 1/4 (1.25) favourites with dabblebet to seal a top two spot with a victory.

Southgate moved to play down the fallout from England's "leaked" team to face Panama, after photographs emerged of assistant manager Steve Holland carrying a sheet of paper with an apparent line-up written on it.

Roman Torres lasted the full 90 minutes against the Belgians despite a slight injury, and should be fit once again to captain an unchanged line-up.

Poor finishing would have been partly to blame if Gareth Southgate's men had failed to win in Volgograd, while peculiar officiating would have also played a major role.

"The team that starts the match is the one with the most experience, that's one of our assets.

I liked how my team worked [against Belgium]", said the 62-year-old Colombian, who is managing at a third World Cup. We've been watching videos of England, they've worked very hard, they're a tactical outfit, they speed up play and have an incredible one-touch style.


The Three Lions beat Tunisia 2-1 on Monday evening thanks to a Harry Kane brace, whilst Panama were downed 3-0 by Belgium.

"But it is not the job of the media to protect the team".

Yet he was clear to point out that Panama are not in Russian Federation for the ride and will be fighting to over-turn every expectation of what they can achieve at their first World Cup. Hopefully, it's going to be a good game and we can impose our attacking threat on them as well as the physical side, try to get the ball down on the deck and create chances that way.

Panama, meanwhile, were one of the surprise inclusions from qualifiers, pipping the United States by a single point and Honduras on goal difference.

"Tomorrow is going to be a very tough match". Sterling's finishing was far from clinical in the opening game, but he contributed by simply being on the pitch, creating space because so many defenders were focused on swarming him every time he touched the ball. In terms of nations at the World Cup, only nine have greater populations.

England on the other hand do have injury troubles (and we are not talking about Southgate's dislocated shoulder).

Southgate went on to compare being at the World Cup and travelling with a press pack like "being on holiday with your family". "It's looking unlikely because he has not trained with the team yet, but he's progressing really well, so we won't rule that out just yet".
