World Cup 2018 fixtures and full schedule - TASS

The 2018 World Cup is fast approaching, with national sides making their final preparations ahead of this summer's tournament.

We now know the groups after December's draw. England have been put together with Belgium, Tunisia and Panama in Group G.

Gareth Southgate's side were not among the top seeds, meaning they featured in pot two during the proceedings.

And with England's route now mapped out, Southgate will be able to ramp up preparations for the 2018 tournament.

“If we come back and the country are proud, that will mean we have played well, in a way that the nation has engaged with and we will have won some games,” he said.

He added: “People are excited by some of the younger players and the approach we have taken and we have got to build on that."

Next summer's World Cup will begin on June 14, running until July 15.

England will open up against Tunisia on June 18.
