NIZHNY NOVGOROD (Sputnik) - England head coach Gareth Southgate said on Saturday that having a team of young players increased the optimism for the future.

The Three Lions will face Panama in their second World Cup Group G match in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday after beating Tunisia 2-1 on June 18.

"Always, when you represent England, there's high expectation. The success of our junior team has been fantastic for our country and for our young players especially. We, of course, have a young squad here as well. That doesn't increase the pressure, it increases the optimism for the future," Southgate told journalists.
