England boss Gareth Southgate raring to go

Kevin De Bruyne has told Eden Hazard to stay calm if he receives rough challenges

England men's football team captain Harry Kane has said that his national side are looking forward to be aggressive and fearless as they aim to approach the upcoming FIFA World Cup on the front foot in Russian Federation.

And they have chosen a song by Glasgow-born Lonnie Donegan for the dubious honour, with the track known as World Cup Willie.

"If a bit more time was taken, a bit more patience, I believe I should still be the England manager".

"I've bounced back now - and while I will be extremely jealous I will be watching Gareth and the lads and hope they do extremely well", he said. "We have a lot of attacking flair that can do some damage".

Southgate added: "I think there was a shift in November when we brought in some of the younger players".

The 24-year-old says England are eager to make their mark on the World Cup and vowed they would approach it on the front foot.

Once Germany fell behind they had few chances to equalise, and Austria looked the more unsafe side on the break. First-half goals from Gary Cahill and captain Harry Kane helped England beat Nigeria 2-1.

It will be the first World Cup appearance for the Tottenham striker, and Kane said that he wants to improve his scoring record in the big tournaments.

"We're proud to be here, we will work hard, be energetic".

"Sometimes going into a big tournament is about not losing and being passive". As such, Southgate has been reluctant to be drawn into talking about England's chances of winning the competition. Our focus as a team has to be on the bits we can control: constantly trying to improve, playing in a style that we've used in the past year or so, and that people have warmed to.

The English youngster is one of the brightest players in the country and this is a problem for us given that we can not start him in most of the games.

"I'm confident it won't happen - I won't say 100 per cent because you never know in football - but in this team we wear our heart on our sleeve".

"We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed our matches", said Southgate before departing for Russian Federation.
