Gareth Southgate's 23-man squad jetted to Russian Federation on Tuesday afternoon as they embark to win the Jules Rimet Trophy for the first time since 1966.

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford will have an injury assessed on Wednesday, said England manager Gareth Southgate as his side touched down in Russian Federation for the World Cup on Tuesday.

"Ultimately we know we'll be judged on results but we have to focus on the processes", he said.

England will train at the nearby Spartak Zelenogorsk Stadium.

Johan Svanstrom, President, Hotels.com brand, said: "We are thrilled to be partnering with Tottenham Hotspur at such an exciting time for the club".

"The past can help us and inform us but it shouldn't shape us and we've got to be our own team".

"So, clearly, getting out of the group and winning a knockout game would be a real sign of progress".

The 1966 World Cup winners failed to get out of the group in 2014, when they were defeated by Italy and Uruguay, and lost 4-1 to Germany in the round of 16 in 2010.

In contrast to a number of FA staff, the players have been allowed to take their usual phones and other personal devices but security experts have installed extra software that will be removed when they return to England.

Ashley Young insists he has no concerns over his family travelling out to support the Three Lions.

Such potential flash points led to Tottenham defender Danny Rose asking his family to remain behind at home amid fears of racist abuse.

Gareth Southgate and his players, along with the entire Football Association entourage, have been briefed by a team of experts from Government Communications Headquarters and warned they will be seen as soft targets unless they take stringent measures to improve their online security.

"I'm always happy to be able to play with him, we do not meet so often", he added.
