Old Scottish song billed as England's World Cup 'secret weapon'

England national team captain, Harry Kane, believes that their team can achieve the World Cup title in Russian Federation and win their first title since the 1966 World Cup.

"I want to score in tournament football, it's something I want to change", he says.

France and Portugal are other possible opponents at this stage - as are England's Euro 2016 conquerors Iceland.

"Obviously I understand you've got the Champions League and Premier League - so many big competitions - but, for me, I don't think it gets much bigger than the World Cup".

"We ask people to pay a lot of money to watch football".

"Everybody wants the end result, and everyone wants to go and win". "The most important is the way you play, and your performances and your results".

"He's a nutter, but we knew that anyway".

United States military service member killed in Somalia attack
Another U.S. service member in Somalia was killed in May 2017 during an operation about 40 miles west of Mogadishu. The U.S. military said its personnel had provided advice, assistance and aerial surveillance during the mission.

One of Gareth Southgate's goals as England manager, other than instil a style of play and give the team an identity, appears to be to improve the squad's relationship with the media.

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

But Southgate insists that his players are primarily determined to entertain and ensure that England at least enjoys a feel-good factor during the tournament.

"It's going to be hard, but it's possible we'll become world champions, we have the players and the coaching staff for it, some of us play in the best clubs in the world and are in the top of the league", he told t-online.

Kane added "For us the key thing is to stay focused on ourselves, not to worry about the teams in the past and things like that". Constantly trying to improve, playing in a style that we've used in the a year ago or so and that people have warmed to.

"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".
