For a change, everything appears to be in favour of England at a major tournament, starting with the group it has been drawn in to the schedule and, more importantly, the make-up of the squad Gareth Southgate has at his disposal.

The Three Lions has been drawn in a group with with one team making its World Cup debut (Panama) and one other appearing in the quadrennial tournament for the first time since 2006 (Tunisia).

They are England's first two opponents before the sterner Belgium test comes around, by when Harry Kane and co. might well have sealed last-16 qualification.
