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.
"What people have seen is the way we want to play - and we definitely want to be an intelligent team in terms of tactical approach and dealing with different stakes and stages in games".
