England captain Harry Kane has assured the press that there are no feelings of hostility between any members of the Three Lions' squad and that they are ready to tackle Russian Federation as a collective unit.

"The aim is to be aggressive and fearless".

Can Belgium's Golden Generation deliver on the world's biggest stage?

Kane, who will captain his country at the tournament, acknowledged that England have been "passive" and have focused too much on avoiding defeat in previous tournaments.

"We have listened to compelling interviews from Rio and Frank and Steven and we've used those to say we've got to make sure we put those club situations to one side, but I don't think there is that intense rivalry at the moment between our top clubs that there was then", he told reporters.

Iceland will be making their first appearance at this year's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation where they are drawn in Group D with Argentina, Nigeria and Croatia.


"Personally, that (scoring) record is something I want to change, and hopefully will this summer", said Kane.

The 1966 World Cup winners failed to get out of the group in 2014, when they were defeated by Italy and Uruguay, and lost 4-1 to Germany in the round of 16 in 2010. I've always felt you go through spells.

"We just didn't know what to do to get back in the game when we were behind because we just hadn't planned for it".

Underscoring the importance of the tournament, Kane said that there are many big tournaments like Champions League and Premier League, but nothing is bigger than the World Cup for him. It's the one competition everybody dreams of winning.

Harry Kane says England will be "aggressive and brave" during this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

"I'm confident it won't happen - I won't say 100 per cent because you never know in football - but in this team we wear our heart on our sleeve".
