Group G Latest: Panama to Face Northern Ireland

England will face Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in Group G at this summer's World Cup and all three of their opponents have named their provisional squads for the tournament.

Tunisia will prepare for their opener against England in Volgograd on June 18 by facing European heavyweights Portugal and Spain in friendlies as well as Turkey.

Panama will host Northern Ireland next week and Gareth Southgate may make a call to counterpart Michael O'Neill for some extra information on the Central America side who will be making their first ever appearance at the finals.

Panama will also take on Norway in Oslo before heading to their training base in Russia.

Group favourites Belgium will warm-up with a trio of home matches against fellow finalists Portugal, Egypt and Costa Rica but the naming of their provisional squad has caused some controversy with manager Roberto Martinez leaving out combative midfielder Radja Nainggolan and prompting the AS Roma man to retire from international football.
