The World Cup opener against Tunisia will be a completely new experience for most members of England's young World Cup squad but confidence is sky-high in the camp, according to midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate has kept his line-up for the first group game out of the press but players were aware of who would get the nod during a behind-closed-doors training session in the last few days.

After the humiliation of a second round exit at the hands of Iceland in Euro 2016 and the failure to get past group stages in Brazil four years ago, England fans do not have high hopes from Harry Kane and Co. Jordan Pickford, Jack Butland and Nick Pope will share goalkeeping duties, while Gary Cahill, Phil Jones and others will be expected to hold down England's defence.

England vs Tunisia Live Score FIFA World Cup 2018 Live Streaming: Though they have won the World Cup only once, England will once again start as one of the favourites to win the title.

It was a quick start for England when Dele Alli broke into the box in the third minute and squared for Jesse Lingard, but his effort from six yards was superbly saved by the Tunisian keeper. That's part of England's ideal record against African teams at the World Cup - three wins and three draws with five clean sheets. Tunisia coach Nabil Maaloul selected striker Wahbi Khazri for his first match since April after an injury and wingback Ali Maaloul also plays despite picking up a muscle strain in a friendly against Spain earlier this month.
