Man Utd utility Youngs urges England to come out firing

Ashley Young has urged England to come firing out of the blocks in their opening World Cup group game against Tunisia.

The Three Lions haven't won their last four opening World Cup games.

"You talk about our results historically but we are here, we are looking to do well in training and do well in that first match," he said.

"I think you can see from the last two friendly games we have started brightly and that can put teams on the back foot. It is what we are looking to do come the first game.

"It is always important to make a good start to a tournament. You want to get off to winning ways, each game is tough but we are fully prepared.

"That is what you want to do, everyone pressing from the back to the front then everyone knows if one of the forwards goes we go as a team."
