Leicester City attacker Demarai Gray has backed his club teammates Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy to impress for England at the 2018 World Cup.
Both Maguire and Vardy will hope to play a part when England open their tournament against Tunisia on Monday night.
Gray, who is an England Under-21 international, has paid tribute to his Foxes teammates, and has backed the Three Lions to “have a very good tournament”.
“Obviously you’ve seen how Harry plays, he’s good on the ball and he’s confident. He’s a solid defender,” Gray told Sky Sports News.
“Jamie just loves to score goals and that’s what he’s done for us this season. He’s done a lot for us in a lot of games this season. So collectively as an England squad I think they’ve got a good balance and I think we could have a very good tournament.”
England will take on Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in the group stage of the competition.
