England last win in a FIFA World Cup game is already something of a distant memory, so much so that many would struggle to remember the 1-0 victory against Slovenia almost eight years ago at South Africa 2010. Indeed, not a single player involved in that game in Port Elizabeth was named in the squad for Russia 2018.

Since Gareth Southgate took over, the Three Lions have enjoyed a fresh start with a host of new young faces in the line-up. In fact, only five players, Gary Cahill, Phil Jones, Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling and Danny Welbeck, even travelled to Brazil four years ago. Now this rejuvenated England team will be attempting to end a four-game winless streak at the tournament when they take on Tunisia on Monday at the Volgograd Arena.

Nevertheless, the north Africans will be far from pushovers and have ambitions of their own at the tournament. In recent friendlies, Tunisia have shown themselves to be tough and well-organised opponents.
