Gareth Southgate: 'Club rivalries no longer a problem for England'

Bertrand blames Southgate ‘oversight’ for England World Cup squad omission

Southgate, who experienced the pitfalls of global football when he missed a penalty in the shootout loss to old foes Germany in the Euro '96 semi-finals hosted in England, did not wish to heighten expectations which has so often been a crushing burden for the national side.

"The aim is to be aggressive and fearless in possession", Kane told British media.

Kane, 24, is the youngest player to be named captain of an English team for a World Cup tournament.

"So we thought, two games on the timeline was good, then a game internally where we're still working on things but a bit more a physical assessment
as well than just a normal training session".

Kane further revealed that England, who are famous for their awful record in shootouts, would look to play the attacking game and focus more on scoring.

"We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed our matches, I know what those tournament experiences can be like and we desperately want to bring that", he said.

"Sometimes, going into a big tournament is about not losing and being passive but, for us, it's about winning the first game, winning the second game".

"Personally, that (scoring) record is something I want to change, and hopefully will this summer", Kane added.

"It is hard to look beyond the World Cup", said Kane.

England are all set to compete with Belgium, Tunisia and Panama in Group G of the World Cup.

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