England players are dressed for success ahead of finals

Harry Kane says England will be "aggressive and brave" during this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

And Tottenham striker Kane, who is likely to be England's designated penalty taker, says the current squad have been practising, whilst also urging his team-mates not to focus on past failures.

That approach has seen them fail to reach the quarter-finals of a major tournament since 2006, while they have not reached the last four since 1996.

"The aim is to be aggressive and fearless".

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

Gareth Southgate is not anxious about club rivalries coming to the fore when England set off for the World Cup next week.

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

"We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed our matches, I know what those tournament experiences can be like and we desperately want to bring that", he said.

Kane has scored 13 goals in 24 appearances since breaking into the senior England side.

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

He struggled for form during England's dismal Euro 2016 campaign when they were knocked out by Iceland in the Round of 16.

"We just didn't know what to do to get back in the game when we were behind because we just hadn't planned for it. We have a lot of attacking flair that can do some damage".

We answer these questions and more in our Group G preview.

"It's going to be a gruelling adventure but we're very proud of what they are all doing".
