England to learn World Cup draw fate

England to learn World Cup draw fate

"About a 50 per cent chance we get England", Vertonghen says, before admitting: "I don't want to [get them]".

"England have got a lot better this year, especially after appointing a new coach and fielding young talent".

Tunisia are first up, in Volgograd on June 18, and there will be memories of England's 1998 World Cup opening game win against the same opponents in Marseille.

"They suck in major tournaments".

Twitter user MisterChip has put together the above graph to calculate who every team will most likely face in the 2018 World Cup and it certainly makes for interesting reading. Thankfully, another update from the fellas at Footy Headlines - a website which really knows its onions when it comes to leaked football kits - allows us to do precisely that.

There could be a positive omen, too, in the Panama manager Hernán Darío Gómez having coached Colombia at France 98 when England beat them 2-0 and David Beckham scored a trademark free-kick from 30 yards.

Asked for his memories of that game, he said: "The goal Beckham scored!"

"We haven't beaten those top teams yet so that is something we have got to aspire to do but we also know the team is improving and is going to improve in the months and years to come".

"Panama are very happy with this group. Panama are learning and trying to progress", he said.

Gareth Southgate's side have drawn Hazard's Belgium which will see Gary Cahill marking his Chelsea team-mate.

Many of those players that take to the pitch will know each other well from playing in the Premier League week in week out, and the two managers will also be accustomed with one another after working as TV pundits together before worldwide management.

"Belgium are ranked fifth in the world (rankings) - and are one of the great nations in the world, not only in Europe". But asked if he feared any of their players, he quipped: "The only risky player is Messi!"
