The Three Lions began their World Cup campaign with a 2-1 win over Tunisia on Friday evening.

Images surfaced on social media showing the apparent England line-up to face Panama on Saturday, which has been used by a number of publications.

"Obviously any time if we were to give the opposition the opportunity of having our team it's a disadvantage to us," Southgate told reporters, according to FourFourTwo.
"So of course our media has to decide if they want to help the team or not."
Three Lions defender Kyle Walker shared the same view as his manager on the leaked team news.
"If you guys just try and keep it to yourself and don't bring it out, because it's not going to help us," Walker added.
"All the world has seen that team now but you guys have to do your little bits."
