England have arrived in Russia before the World Cup, with manager Gareth Southgate saying he wants his team to play with flair and entertain the nation. They landed at St Petersburg airport and will be based in the nearby village of Repino, in North West Russia.

England's first game in Group G is against Tunisia on Monday. "We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed our matches," said Southgate.

Moments after landing, Southgate revealed that Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford picked up a "slight knock" in training and will be assessed before Wednesday's open training session.

The tournament begins on Thursday when hosts Russia face Saudi Arabia at 16:00 BST. Reigning champions Germany have also arrived, landing at Vnukovo airport in south west Moscow. The four-time champions open their campaign against Mexico on Sunday.
