No cliques within our team, says England captain, Harry Kane

Ryan Bertrand was left out of England's World Cup squad

The Three Lions have often capitulated in shootout scenarios at major global tournaments having been knocked out of the World Cups in 1990, 1998 and 2006 on penalties.

Kane says the current squad will bring a fresh approach to this summer's World Cup, though, saying: "The aim is to be aggressive and courageous in possession".

Kane, 24, is the youngest player to be named captain of an English team for a World Cup tournament. "We have personal support, team support and official protocol in place".

Kane further revealed that England, who are famous for their awful record in shootouts, would look to play the attacking game and focus more on scoring. We want to take this tournament head on.

"There will be tough moments and there will be ups and downs".

"If we do all of those things and we play with a smile on our face, enjoy our football, enjoy being in a tournament, then I think we will get results".

Trump immediately grumbled about the media to Kim Jong Un
Kim told Trump that there were " many obstacles" ahead of the meeting, "but we overcame all". "That's true", the president agreed. Obama was praised in 2014, though, when he insisted on an open news conference alongside Hu's successor, President Xi Jinping.

Gareth Southgate's England side might want to be practising their penalties when they're not in action at the World Cup in Russian Federation this month, but there will be also be ample opportunity for the squad to enjoy a spot of golf.

"Personally, that (scoring) record is something I want to change, and hopefully will this summer", said Kane.

"I've always felt you go through spells: the ball goes in sometimes and other times it doesn't, like in August every year for me. Everybody is looking forward to getting to the first game".

"It is hard to look beyond the World Cup", said Kane. It's the one competition everybody dreams of winning.

"I'm confident it won't happen (again) - I won't say 100 per cent because you never know in football - but in this team we wear our heart on our sleeve".

England's players are on their way to Russian Federation for the World Cup.
