    Wenger says  he has made up his mind  about his own future, but is yet to sign the two-year extension on offer.

    "At the moment we have not got an agreement," said Wenger when asked about the future of Sanchez.

    Syria have already beaten China away and sit fourth in their World Cup group, five points from an automatic qualifying spot.

  12. Southgate: 'End island mentality'

    Gareth Southgate

    England boss Gareth Southgate suggested that the national team setup needs to learn and take advice from successful footballing nations like Germany in order to improve its own framework - which in turn could lead to future success.

    The ex-Boro boss said: "We can learn from their mentality. When we've played German teams they just have that belief in the way they play."

    Joe Gallagher looks to the ground and shrugs: "Crolla's caught me crying in the changing rooms. That's how it is. You take it personally."

    Dealing with defeat as a boxing trainer was just one topic we covered in an interview with Anthony Crolla's trainer. We watched on as Crolla worked out behind closed doors last week and spoke to Gallagher about boxing costing him his marriage, how he picks a fighter to train and when he will call it a day in this all-consuming sport.

    This is the stats board which hangs in Gallagher's Gym - where the likes of Anthony Crolla, Liam Smith and Callum Smith train.

    While the spotlight may be on trainer Joe Gallagher and Crolla ahead of Saturday's WBA lightweight title shot against Jorge Linares, the journey to the top has been long in the making - Gallagher began coaching in 1993.

    BBC Sport were allowed to sit in on Crolla's last big training session, where we spoke at length with Gallagher as his charge sparred, slammed the bags and stretched impressively.

    Gallagher says: "When Anthony came to me, people said: 'He won't do anything. He's too nice, can't punch. He might win an English title.' I thought: Really? I'll show you."

    It may only be 12 months since England met Germany in a friendly in Berlin - in which Roy Hodgson's side came from two goals down to beat the World Cup holders 3-2 - but anticipation is mounting again here in Dortmund.

    England fans are flooding into Germany and this is a fixture manager Gareth Southgate admits has an edge stretching back half a century.

    He said: "Unquestionably. It is one of the fixtures that all of our supporters look towards, like when we play Scotland, It is that sort of rivalry.

    "There have been some classic matches over a period of 50 years. It is a fixture that everyone looks forward to.

    "I guess this is a little bit different when you look at the players they have got missing as well but it's a really exciting game and a great test for us."
