England manager Gareth Southgate refused to get carried away
with what appeared to be a hugely favourable draw on Friday for his team at the 2018 world cup in Russia
The draw in Moscow saw England given games against Belgium, Panama and Tunisia in Group G.
It meant England, who have not won a major men’s international trophy since lifting￼ the 1966 World Cup on home soil, avoided global giants Argentina, Brazil and Germany after Argentina great Diego Maradona picked them out of Pot 2 at the Kremlin’s State Palace.
