World Cup 2018 draw

World Cup 2018 draw

Southgate's men were pitted against Tunisia - a team they beat at the same stage at the 1998 FIFA World Cup - and tournament debutants Panama in the draw at the Kremlin in Moscow.

The draw stirred fond memories for Southgate of playing for England against Tunisia at France 98, a match they won 2-0.

The camera then switches to the TV, and captures the moment the Three Lions are drawn in Group G - alongside Belgium, Panama and Tunisia.

It will be nearly exactly 20 years to the day when England played Tunisia in their opening fixture of the 1998 World Cup, with England winning 2-0 on June 15.

Belgium's best World Cup finish came in 1986 when they finished fourth, and Martinez believes this sets them as outsiders for the Jules Rimet trophy.

Sources said Joshi told the Committee that he had appointed a panel of experts to examine the film and provide inputs to the CBFC. Bhansali and Joshi appeared before the standing committee, while the CBFC chief deposed before the Lok Sabha panel as well.

Twitter user MisterChip has put together the above graph to calculate who every team will most likely face in the 2018 World Cup and it certainly makes for interesting reading.

With a squad largely made up of players from Tunisian clubs Esperance and Etoile du Sahel, they also lack top-level pedigree. Panama scored just nine goals in their final 10 qualifiers; their threat does not lie in their attacking play. "The average age of this Tunisian squad is 26 and despite meeting England, we have a great chance of reaching the second round". Southgate's under-stated approach will help, however, with the former England midfielder not prone to over-hyping his team. They are pushing the likes of Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson.

"We've obviously not been following their games in our qualifying phase".

England have the players to expect progression from their group, however. Dier is a certainty for the defensive midfield role while going forward, Adam Lallana, Sterling, Kane, Marcus Rashford and Dele Alli give England genuine attacking threat.

On Friday, the World Cup draw also pitted the North Africans against Belgium and Panama.
