Waistcoat sales up as Gareth Southgate sets trend at World Cup

Share

Marks & Spencer, who have been the official suit supplier to the England national team since 2007, have made replica versions of the suit available to fans at the price of £265, while Southgate's popular waistcoat costs an additional £65.

Spain were regarded as the toughest possible opponent in England's half of the draw, but they were knocked out by hosts Russian Federation on Monday.

England though, have a tricky round of 16 match against Colombia on Tuesday but then would have winnable games against Sweden or Switzerland in the quarter-finals and Russia, Croatia or Denmark in the semi-finals on their route.

With boss Gareth Southgate likely to revert to the side which beat Tunisia in their opening Group G game with Dele Alli fit again, Lingard is confident they'll perform with the same fluency which marked their two wins so far.

"It feels like a new revolution", the Manchester United midfielder told a news conference at England's Repino training base. The manager has come in with great ideas, great ideas in the way he wants us to play. The formation suits us perfectly. They enjoy their football and they play without the fear of losing. "The team spirit is incredible".

"It would be disappointing for everyone if we went home this week", he said.

Whilst Kane is a burgeoning Lilywhites legend after three incredibly successful seasons spearheading the Spurs' attack to be awarded with the captain's armband by coach Gareth Southgate going into Russia, Lineker is in the bonafide elite and remains the only English player to have won the Golden Boot at a World Cup.

"For now we're family and we've really got a strong bond at the moment between everyone".

"Everyone's excited more than anything. We believe we can do that".

But it will be a red hot atmosphere in Moscow and Lingard is determined to make the most of a match Southgate has described as England's biggest for a decade. "We will be aware of that".
