England defender John Stones says that the Three Lions are determined to progress to the knockout stages of the World Cup this weekend.

England defender John Stones has said that the Three Lions are determined to progress to the knockout stages of the World Cup this weekend.

Gareth Southgate's team, who defeated Tunisia 2-1 in Volgograd on Monday night, could advance to the last 16 with a win over Panama on Sunday.

The Three Lions' also need Belgium to defeat Tunisia to make sure of their spot in the next round.

"It would be great to wrap up qualification this weekend - that's the aim. We want to get through the group stage as quickly as possible," Stones told the Evening Standard.

"Obviously it is a case of one game at a time and we can't look past that. But if we have the right mentality and focus all our energy on Panama, we will do the job. We will know the result of the Tunisia-Belgium game before we play so we will know whether it is possible or not.

"It should definitely be great motivation for us if Tunisia haven't won. We have come here to progress to the next round. If we can do that in two games rather three, even better."

England sit second in Group G on goal difference.
