ENGLAND'S World Cup campaign begins in just THREE days as they take on Iran in their opener.
The Three Lions are in Qatar and have been undertaking training sessions since their arrivals on Tuesday night.
England's last World Cup tournament ended in agony as they lost 2-1 to Croatia in the semi-finals of the 2018 edition in Russia.
But four years on from then, and with a Euro 2020 final appearance in the bag too, Southgate's men are looking to finally overcome the very last hurdle.
It's been 56 years since England won their first and only World Cup, and expectations of the team continue to grow every four years.
Iran will be their first test, before further group stage clashes with rivals Wales and 2010 World Cup group rivals USA.
This tournament could be make or break for Southgate, who may view the Qatar showpiece as his last opportunity to finally win major silverware as England boss.
