What are the odds?

England are strong favourites to win, with SkyBet pricing the Three Lions up at 4/9.

The draw is available at 10/3, while Africa's highest-ranked side are at 15/2 to claim victory.

Any team news?

Jordan Pickford will likely start in goal for the Three Lions after being given the No.1 shirt by Southgate.

The rest of the line up is harder to predict, with the former Middlesbrough and Aston Villa man having a number of different players and formations to choose from.

In England's pre-tournament clashes with Nigeria and Costa Rica, Southgate opted for a 3-5-2 formation and looks likely to do so again in Volgograd.

Who plays for Tunisia?

Tunisia's star man is Sunderland midfielder Wahbi Khazri.

The No.10 went out on loan to Rennes last term and netted 12 goals in 32 appearances with the Ligue 1 side.

Leicester City defender Yohan Benalouane is also in the Tunisia 23-man squad.
