Southgate took the opportunity in his Friday press conference to condemn the leak by the press and effectively give his side's opponents the opportunity of seeing their line-up in advance. England, meanwhile, has a wealth of world champions, Olympic gold medallists and, over half a century ago, even a World Cup-winning football team in its history.

"This morning he followed the exact programme we had planned", Southgate said. "I think [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek and [Marcus] Rashford really change the game late on and I think really driving forward and driving forward with a ton of pace is very important for England", Dunfield said.

There are no such questions over the Panama team. It is a squad of 23 names on the sheet, the next sheet has different players in different positions because we swap people in and swap people out. "Just as the country is pleased just now, tomorrow it could hate us and we would lose four years of work". "They might want to frustrate us or make people angry, but we've got to keep our cool and keep calm". We've just got to accept whatever decisions are given by the referee on the field or the VAR officials.

He started just two Premier Leagues after March, playing more times for England since then, and received criticism for not being strong enough when Roberto Firmino brushed him aside for a crucial goal in the 4-3 defeat to Liverpool in January.

The Oppo didn't mention an exact launch date for the Lamborghini edition device, but Oppo Find X is expected to launch on July 12. There's a growing trend to offer increasingly bigger displays with a high screen-to-body ratio and bezels as slim as possible.

Indeed, the 62-year-old considers Southgate's side to be candidates to reach the latter stages in Russian Federation given their positive mix of young talent and collective strength.

The revelation was the first indication the squad had that Raheem Sterling could be dropped after struggling to make an impression in the opening win against Tunisia on Monday and Marcus Rashford could lead the attack with captain Harry Kane.

"We don't know yet whether the England team that was accidentally revealed by assistant manager Steve Holland will be the one that starts against Panama, but I don't think it should have been leaked in the first place", Lampard told BBC Sport. I think that was proved against Tunisia.

"We're England, we're all one nation and we all want to do well".

"If I thought that was the team I'd say "OK, it's not really helped us, guys".
