Reacting to England’s draw, manager Gareth Southgate said: The first two teams [USA and Iran] we haven’t played for quite a while, and the third is a total unknown but throws up a possible British derby. We know what they’re about and we’ve had plenty of them. For us, we’re in on day one so it’s quite clear what our program looks like with the end of the Premier League season, getting out here as quickly as possible.”

The 51-year-old added: “When you’re seeded, you get the advantage of missing out on those big six or seven teams. For most of the first seeds, they’d be pleased with the first group they get. There are some really highly ranked teams in pot two, and the US is an interesting one. I know Gregg Berhalter quite well, we’ve met a few times and had long chats about things, in fact only a few weeks ago, so we were smiling at the end there but they’ve got some really good players, we know what they could be careful of as a nation, so that one in particular is an intriguing one.”
