Marcus Rashford 'will be watching' World Cup 2018 draw

Marcus Rashford 'will be watching' World Cup 2018 draw

"Very excited for the World Cup and facing Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Moussa Dembele".

"The key to qualification is going to be the first match, on 18 June, against England", Maaloul told BBC Sport.

"So, I like the fact that's been shared and I think it's important for us, especially with the younger groups, that they get a feel of that and that they get a feel of responsibility". "For me, Kane is one of the greatest forwards in the world right now".

"The danger is that you underestimate any of the teams. We are expecting a very hard match".

"It's a hard group but we were expecting a hard draw because if you are in Pot 3, you are going to have some great footballing nations - like Belgium and England". We know it's probably the best side Belgium has ever had, and we know the quality they have. They have talented players. We can't just have one captain and rely on them.

The Republic of Ireland's play-off conquerors Denmark will take on 1998 winners France, Peru and Australia.

Speaking to talkSPORT following the World Cup draw, the 47-year-old said: "If you look at the groups, because of the seeding you get two teams in the top 15/20 in the rankings and then a couple of teams who aren't in there".

However, Maaloul - who is in his second stint as Tunisia coach after a brief spell in charge in 2013 - believes his side can correct that unwanted statistic.

"The interesting thing for us is starting later and what that might mean for us at the end of the season", he said.

"I know a lot of people I have worked with have plotted out who we might get [but] I have never done that". Breaking Panama down will be England's challenge but with Tunisia and Panama cast in the roles of minnows, England must perform as they did in their qualifying campaign, where they were efficient rather than stylish.
