INSTAGRAM FORTNITE DANCE Dele Alli could celebrate an England goal by flossing at the World Cup

Rashford missed two training sessions in England's first week in Repino after suffering a knock to his knee at St George's Park before the squad's departure for Russian Federation, but has now proved his fitness.

During training at England's Repino base in Russian Federation on Thursday, Southgate's notes were briefly visible and photographers were able to zoom in on what appeared to be his team sheet.

Depending on Alli's recovery, Southgate may opt to rest his creative midfielder in favour of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who looked lively in the closing stages against Tunisia.

Panama appear to be the weakest team in Group G and it is possible England are prepared to rotate, giving players such as Loftus-Cheek and Rashford a chance to impress.

"I am happy if I start or if I don't", Loftus-Cheek said in an interview on England's official YouTube channel.

"I think for Raheem, I was really pleased with the performance he gave".

But improvements can be made and against Panama, Rashford should be given the nod ahead of Alli.

Whether the sheet is an intentional move to mislead or will indeed prove the starting line-up remains to be seen.

Also still be be revealed is whether Southgate will wear a sling on Sunday.

Gareth Southgate took England training on Thursday, despite the discomfort of a dislocated shoulder. Southgate, generally speaking, got things right. The squad train behind three metre high fences in Zelenogorsk, with heavy security around the complex.
