England's Delph ready to miss a game to be at birth

England's Delph ready to miss a game to be at birth

That attack is why England is widely expected to beat Tunisia, just as it did nearly 20 years ago when the teams played their first group match in the World Cup in France.

"We are about to have a third child and I am not about to miss it if I can help it but I want to get back as fast as I can - we will have to see".

Most of the 5,000 England fans expected for the match were thought to be arriving early Monday morning.

Talking to England's YouTube channel Southgate said: "The players know the team, so I think that's helpful that everything's settled, they know their jobs, and the guys that aren't in the team know their jobs, and have prepared well".

"Gareth is the leader of the team", he said.

Then in order to get our best players on the pitch, we played with a diamond for an 18-month period when we won the Toulon tournament.

England don't boast of big names this time but there is a sense of bonhomie among the players and in Southgate they have a coach who understands them.

Managers usually like to keep their starting line-ups close to their chest to avoid giving their rivals a heads-up of their tactical approach but Delph said there was not a risk of a leak now the team was known. "I'm there for the spirit of the camp to get everyone going, to get them all happy".

"I think, with H, he's always been a captain - whether he had the armband or not".

"It's something that of course is the past and we respect the people who lost their lives who fought together".

Such issues are behind Danny Rose's loved ones staying at home - an admission that made widespread headlines, albeit nowhere near as much as his frank interview about depression.

While this has the whiff of a banana skin about it, England should look back to how Southgate's '98 side comfortably brushed past Tunisia, winning 2-0.

"We are hoping it does go as smoothly as it should and the world's press will write about a great football tournament and nothing negative", said FSF spokesman Luc Jones.

Southgate tried to lift the pressure off his squad after several former players have commented recently that the expectations of past tournaments stopped them from performing at their best level. "The preparation remains the same, we're a team, all about the team". "They're probably one of the favourites, but we didn't expect anything less from Spain".
