ENGLAND’S World Cup campaign begins TOMORROW as they take on Qatar in their World Cup opener.
The Three Lions arrived in Qatar to much fanfare and have been training in sweltering conditions all week.
Iran will be their first test, before further group stage clashes with rivals Wales and 2010 World Cup group rivals USA.
This tournament could be make or break for Southgate, who may view the Qatar showpiece as his last opportunity to finally win major silverware as England boss.
