Gareth Southgate becomes first major injury casualty of England's World Cup campaign

Southgate returned to the England camp for a meeting with his players, who were surprised when he walked in with his right arm in a sling.

"I look up to him as a captain and a friend because of the things he has done for me in the last two years", said Stones, who arrived at the Etihad from Everton with a £50m price tag and the burden of being Britain's most expensive defender. That's why I wasn't in the squad as much.

The Manchester City ace has become one of Gareth Southgate's most influential players and is being tipped to be a future captain. "Players that want to be in a physical combat, you've not got to give them that".

"I might not be celebrating any goals as athletically in future!" joked Southgate, who was treated in a nearby hospital with the assistance of team doctor Rob Chakraverty.

A Daily Mail report nailed England's team for their group opener against Tunisia on Monday while an eagle-eyed Daily Mirror photographer seemed to get a snapshot of Southgate's reshuffled side for this weekend's clash against Panama. They were supposed to be relaxing because we let the players have a bit of time off and I am causing them work. With fellow centre-back Harry Maguire's header from another corner leading to Kane's added-time victor, it served to underline the importance of self-pieces in the competition.

Melania Trump's 'I really don't care' jacket causes a stir
Last August, the media and public discussed the high-heeled shoes she wore to fly to Texas to view Hurricane Harvey destruction. Shocking images and audio of children being detained at Customs and Border Protection facilities provoked outrage online.

It was not a game without controversy either with Harry Kane being bundled over twice in the Tunisian box and receiving nothing.

Stones, 24, could find himself in direct confrontation with fellow centre-back Kompany when England face Belgium in their final Group G game on 28 June.

On the specific physical threat of Panama, Stones added: "It's something we have spoken about and we are going to stick to our game plan".

"We are lucky we have a top-class medical team around us, so it was fine".
