Let’s fight for it.” Harry Maguire (England): “The country stops, especially when there’s a game on and England are playing in it.“As a fan I’ve been to watch numerous England games as a boy – they’re passionate, everyone loves the game. As professional footballers we feel more than capable of handling that pressure.“There are a lot of players in this squad who haven’t played in World Cups but we’re going to go in with no fear, really hungry and really attack this tournament.” The Three Lions get their World Cup campaign underway when they lock horns with Tunisia at the Vologorad Arena, Volgograd.The World Cup has had a few surprises so far but will Tunisia v England throw up any shock twists or turns?
