Dele Alli to miss England’s World Cup game against Panama

Dele Alli to miss England’s World Cup game against Panama

Reacting initially to the stories, Southgate said "our media has to decide whether they want to help the team or not", but he used his official pre-match press conference in Nizhny Novgorod to take any sting out of the situation. When they conceded the soft penalty it looked as though it would be an all too familiar story for the Three Lions.

Having only lost to Germany and France in their last 20 fixtures, they are clear 1/4 (1.25) favourites with dabblebet to seal a top two spot with a victory.

England and Panama will face each other in the World Cup Group G match on Sunday.

Alli looks set to be replaced in the starting line-up by Ruben Loftus-Cheek, while all eyes will be on the team sheet to see whether Marcus Rashford does indeed replace Raheem Sterling.

Roman Torres lasted the full 90 minutes against the Belgians despite a slight injury, and should be fit once again to captain an unchanged line-up.

Manager Gareth Southgate's celebration was just as passionate and public as it was when he was a player.

"The team that starts the match is the one with the most experience, that's one of our assets".

Can Gareth Southgate mastermind a second World Cup win for England?

Temperatures of more than 30 degrees are forecast for Sunday's match in Nizhny Novgorod and, with the match being played at 3 pm local time (1200 GMT), the heat could be stifling - conditions that would likely favour England's Central American opponents.

On Monday, Harry Kane scored twice to see England beat Tunisia 2-1 in their opening group game.

England takes on Panama in the FIFA World Cup 2018. In terms of nations at the World Cup, only nine have greater populations.

The party scenes on Saturday night were in marked contrast to Friday night, when few England fans had arrived in the city and Panama supporters created a carnival atmosphere.

"It has been a lot of years where it has been a little bit hard, but even playing darts now (in the media centre), we're getting to interact with each other and it's good fun".

This is going to be a very tough nut to crack.

Leicester defender Maguire is highly unlikely to be intimidated - standing 6ft 4in, weighing in at more than 15 stone and a veteran of countless tussles during his time with Sheffield United in League One - but he has stressed the importance of staying focused. They navigated their first group game without any further injuries and should field a similar team against England.

"Who England pick is not a concern for us". "But just as the country is pleased right now, tomorrow or the day after they could hate us".
