England land Belgium, Tunisia and Panama in 2018 World Cup draw

England World Cup draw

He added: "We are a group of players with an incredible responsibility, they are true ambassadors for Belgium football".

England will open up against Tunisia on June 18.

We have come unstuck against supposedly lesser nations in the past and we have had really good results against teams that would be seeded higher than us. The World Cup will begin on June 14, 2018, and end on July 15, 2018.

However, the amount of time they need to keep themselves off the pitch amused will be wholly reliant on performances on the pitch and how far the team go in the tournament. "We've got to be prepared for every game".

Belgium have beaten England only once in 21 meetings - back in 1936 - but the side that boasts Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku is a fearsome beast.

Belgium are a fearsome proposition, but England avoided the likes of holders Germany and Brazil, a source of relief even if they held both to goalless friendly draws last month.

England secured their spot in Russian Federation after topping their qualifying group in a relatively easy run of games and Gareth Southgate will be hoping for another simple route to the Luzhniki Stadium for the World Cup final.

"About a 50 per cent chance we get England", Vertonghen says, before admitting: "I don't want to [get them]". We know it's probably the best side Belgium has ever had, and we know the quality they have.

"I think when we've just come in from two tournaments where Costa Rica knocked us out and then Iceland, it would be folly for us not to be serious about our preparation and make sure our mentality (is right), but also not being fearful of what might happen is an important balance to find".

At one stage there was a 50-50 chance of either Brazil or Germany but host Gary Lineker joked that Maradona was good with his hands and so it proved once more, the Argentina legend only drawing England with two balls to go.

"They are clearly favourites from what we have seen in recent years, with the coach they have, and then second place I honestly think will be between England and us".
