England were handed a favourable draw for the 2018 World Cup in Russia after avoiding Argentina, Brazil and Germany.
Gareth Southgateâ€™s Three Lions were the penultimate team picked from Pot 2 by Diego Maradona in the draw ceremony in the Kremlinâ€™s State Palace.
England will face Tunisia in their opening game in Volgograd on June 18, a repeat of their first game in the 1998 World Cup in France, when goals from Alan Shearer and Paul Scholes gave England a 2-0 win in Marseille.
They will then travel to Nizhny Novgorod on June 24 to take on Panama, with their final group fixture against Belgium on June 28 in Kaliningrad.
