England will take on the top-ranked nation in their group, Belgium, in their final match on June 28, a schedule that should also favour Southgate's team, says Murphy.
"I think we haven't had a clear captaincy figure for a little while and I think we could have jumped into a decision and not given other people the chance to step forward and do the things they've done".
"About a 50 per cent chance we get England", Vertonghen says, before admitting: "I don't want to [get them]".
"Having played Brazil last month, I wasn't disappointed to be missing out on that game in the group because I think they're going to be one of the serious contenders", said the 47-year-old. It will be nearly exactly 20 years to the day when England played Tunisia in their opening fixture of the 1998 World Cup, with England winning 2-0 on June 15. It gets some of the younger lads, who may not have played in a major tournament before, into the tournament nice and gets them a run into the Belgium game.
"We knew that the maximum journey would be a couple of hours and we couldn't be in three different time zones anyway, the way it was all prepared", Southgate said in Moscow.
Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has revealed his family will be supporting the opposition when he sends his team out against England at this summer's World Cup. "You know how important it is for us as Muslims".
Gareth Southgate's side also have Panama, who came through the Concacaf round, on June 24 in Nizhy Novgorod.
The middle game comes against debutants Panama - who provide another link to 1998, as they are managed by Hernan Darío Gomez, who coached Colombia against England in France.
They beat Tunisia 1-0 but were eliminated after losing 2-0 to England in Lens, with Darren Anderton putting the English ahead before David Beckham scored a wonderful free-kick. They have talented players. "Panama are learning and trying to progress", he said.
