World Cup Underway
England face Tunisia in Volgograd
- England will kick off their 2018 World Cup with a game against Tunisia on Monday 18th June. England have played the Eagles of Carthage twice before and the last meeting brings back some interesting memories of the 1998 World Cup.
Just like in 1998 England face Tunisia in the opening game in Group G. Like then it was a Monday and Gareth Southgate, who played in that game 20 years ago, will be hoping for the same result. A 2-0 win for England with goals from captain Alan Shearer in the first half and Paul Scholes in the last minute of regulation time.
Earlier in the day the other two teams in the group, Belgium and Panama, will kick-off in Sochi. England face Panama on Sunday 24th June and Belgium on 28th June.
