England will also face World Cup debutants Panama and highly fancied Belgium in Group G.

The showpiece event in Russian Federation will be Kane's first World Cup, having previously played for England at Euro 2016 and in the 2015 Under-21 European Championship, but the Tottenham striker wants to break his duck of never scoring at a major tournament.

England manager Gareth Southgate has insisted that club rivalries will not taint his side's hopes of enjoying a successful World Cup campaign in Russian Federation.

Southgate has quietly overseen a changing of the guard with England, however, by promoting young players and overlooking the likes of Wayne Rooney, Joe Hart, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere and he believes that England will travel to Russian Federation having already pressed the reset button with the fans.

"You can pick knocks up, there is one or two very close calls that we can see how we players are when we get into sessions here".

"We ask people to pay a lot of money to watch football".

It will be the first World Cup appearance for the Tottenham striker, and Kane said that he wants to improve his scoring record in the big tournaments.

"Everybody wants the end result, and everyone wants to go and win".

"I'm confident it won't happen - I won't say 100 per cent because you never know in football - but in this team we wear our heart on our sleeve". "I don't think we were prepared for every eventuality".

The English striker reassured the fans about their biggest fear, Penalties, saying "We have been practicing penalties, not every session, but every now and then the coaches will throw it in at the end of the session; when we are maybe a little bit worn out in games after extra-time, the lads are exhausted, that's when it's going to happen".

"We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed those matches", he said.

Kane added that he regards national team achievements higher than those at club level.
