"It is something we have spoken about and we are going to stick to our game plan".

Southgate added: "He probably needs to add goals to his game to become a more complete midfield player I'd say".

Southgate says we shouldn't read too much into this document and that it doesn't confirm any individual players statuses for Sunday.

Meanwhile, Stones has revealed how City teammate Vincent Kompany took time out to help him improve his game and ensure his place at the World Cup.

Sterling, who started England's opening World Cup win over Tunisia in Group G on Monday, has received negative media coverage over his allegedly "lavish" spending habits, including when he bought his mother a house in 2016.

Stones has been in and out of Pep Guardiola's side since his £47.5 million move from Everton two seasons ago.

It is a big talking point and has cropped up in relation to Ireland's football and rugby teams in the past, too - is it the job of reporters to present the news as they see it or to pull together for the national good?

Joe Hart insists he is determined to "come back stronger" after being left out of the England squad for the World Cup.

"We knew how they were going to play but also how the referees are going to treat us", he added. I think he showed that in his cameo against Tunisia the other night.

- England are unbeaten in their last four World Cup games against CONCACAF nations (W2 D2), drawing the last two against United States of America in 2010 and Costa Rica in 2014.

"If they are continuously fouling us, we can't react in a bad way".

"That's a different thing in itself to adapt to".
