Latest team news England Gareth Southgate is considering dropping Raheem Sterling against Panama, judging by a note spotted at England training. After the Three Lions sealed a last-gasp 2-1 win against Tunisia in Monday's World Cup opener, preparations are under way for Sunday's game in Nizhny Novgorod. England's players returned from a recovery day with a full session on Thursday morning, when focus on Southgate after dislocated a shoulder running was usurped by a note carried by assistant manager Steve Holland. Steve Holland, England Assistant Coach, with notes training notes Credit: JULIAN SIMMONDS It showed that the side are preparing to play in 3-5-2 formation against Panama, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek in midfield following Dele Alli's slight thigh strain - a player whose name was spelt 'Ali' on the sheet in the medical section. The Tottenham man missed the session because of the injury he picked up against Tunisia. But the most noteworthy aspect of the pictured piece of paper was Marcus Rashford, rather than Sterling, playing in the attacking two alongside captain Harry Kane. Sterling, 23, has had to put up with a lot in the build-up to Russia and struggled to make an impact against Tunisia, with Southgate making the Manchester City forward his first change when bringing on Rashford in the 68th minute. England vs Tunisia Player ratings Panama The World Cup finals debutants have no injuries to report and Hernan Dario Gomez has a full-strength squad of relatively unknown but remarkably experienced players - the 24 men picked for the spring friendlies averaged 59 caps each - ready for Russia. What do we know about the Panama team? In a country better known for its baseball players and boxing champions, football will muscle into their territory when Panama make a first trip to the World Cup. The Central Americans aren't complete unknowns. Twice runners-up at the Concacaf Gold Cup, they qualified for the tournament in Russia by finishing ahead of the United States. That's despite the huge disparity between the countries: Panama has only 4 million people, while the US has about 320 million. Tougher challenges loom for Panama in June when Belgium and England are among the team's opponents in Group G. Roman Torres could be key to preventing Panama from leaking goals. The dreadlocked defender became a national hero after scoring the goal that clinched Panama's World Cup place, leading to a national holiday being declared. Here's a closer look at the Panama team: Coach Gomez is known for working his magic. After guiding his homeland of Colombia to the 1998 World Cup, he led Ecuador to the tournament for the first time in 2002. World Cup 2018 stadiums Goalkeepers Jaime Penedo, who started in goal in the last three qualifiers, helped the team finish second at the Concacaf Gold Cup in 2005 and in 2013, where he was named the best goalkeeper. But he has not been a regular starter recently at Dinamo Bucharest in Romania. Defenders The 32-year-old Torres of the Seattle Sounders club is trying to get back into full shape after a knee injury. He is set be joined in central defense by Fidel Escobar and Adolfo Machado. They will likely be flanked by Michael Murillo on the right and Eric Davis on the left. World Cup predictor Midfielders Gabriel Gomez and Anibal Godoy are expected to assume the defensive midfield roles. Alberto Quintero is likely to play on the left and Edgar Joel Barcenas could play on the right or in the center behind the striker to create more scoring chances. Forwards Expect a sole striker for the Belgium and England games. Gomez will have to decide on 37-year-old Blas Perez or 29-year-old Gabriel Torres, who has had a successful season with Chilean club Huachipato. Luis Tejada, known as the "Matador" for his lethal finishing, is 36 and is another aging option. What are they saying? Panama coach Hernan Dario Gomez hopes his team is a "dignified rival": "I hope people enjoy it instead of criticising and destroying the dream that we've achieved. "We have played Wales, who are more or less the same style (as England). We also played against Iran, who are like Tunisia. We have knowledge of what we'll come up against.” Latest Group G table What are the odds? England to win 1/5 Draw 4/1 Panama to win 12/1 What's our prediction? To avoid embarrassing defeats at the World Cup, Panama have experimented with five defenders and they limited the damage in a friendly against Denmark in March to a 1-0 loss. England have often struggled to break defensive teams down, but once the first goal goes in, expect the floodgates to open. Predicted score: England 4 Panama 0.

What is it? The second round of matches is underway as Germany take on Sweden in Group F. The much-fancied Germans were stunned in their opening game, going down 1-0 to Mexico, so a win against the Swedes is vital if they are to qualify from the group stages. Sweden got their campaign up and running with a 1-0 win over South Korea.

But Reus has suffered significant injuries the past few seasons, none bigger than a knee injury that caused him to miss more than half of last season with Dortmund. "I really have no say in this.

What is it? The second round of matches is underway as Germany take on Sweden in Group F. The much-fancied Germans were stunned in their opening game, going down 1-0 to Mexico, so a win against the Swedes is vital if they are to qualify from the group stages.

Mexico striker Javier Hernandez has appealed to his country's football fans to stop their homophobic chanting at World Cup matches, arguing it could lead to further fines from Fifa.

"To all Mexican fans in the stadiums, don't shout 'puto'," Hernandez said. "Let's not risk another sanction." Mexicans have long shouted the word - slang for a male sex worker - which gay rights groups argue is homophobic.

The Mexican football federation (FMF) was sanctioned 12 times for homophobic chanting during the World Cup qualifying campaign, receiving warnings for the first two offences and fines for 10 more. The chant was also widely heard at Mexico games in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, when Fifa took no action, but the governing body has since launched a clamp-down.

What is it? It's the Group E fixture between Serbia and Switzerland. When is it? Friday, June 22. What time is kick-off? It's at 7pm BST. What TV channel is it on? BBC One will have live coverage. Alternatively, you can follow the action with our live blog. Where is the game being played? It will be played at the Kaliningrad Stadium, Kaliningrad. World Cup 2018 stadium: Kaliningrad Stadium What is the team news? Switzerland midfielder Valon Behrami had a great game against Brazil but came off with a thigh strain after 70 minutes. However, manager Vladimir Petković is confident he'll be back in the starting XI against Serbia. Serbia boss Mladen Krstajic, meanwhile, has no major concerns following the win over Costa Rica. Serbia likely XI: Stojkovic; Ivanovic, Milenkovic, Tosic, Kolarov; Matic, Milivojevic, Milinkovic-Savic, Tadic, Kostic; Mitrovic. Switzerland likely XI: Sommer; Lichtsteiner, Schaer, Akanji, Rodriguez; Behrami, Xhaka; Shaqiri, Dzemaili, Zuber; Seferovic. What's the latest news? A topsy-turvy Group E could be thrown into further disorder when Serbia and Switzerland clash in a contest that could put one team on the brink of advancing to the knockout round. A group that was supposed to see mighty Brazil at the top instead has Serbia, the lowest ranked in the pack, looking down at everyone after a 1-0 win over Costa Rica in their opener while the South Americans and Switzerland battled to a 1-1 draw. At number six in the Fifa world rankings it is hard to call the industrious Swiss a surprise package but the stalemate with the five-time world champions still registered as a shock which shook up the group and indeed the World Cup. The stakes, however, get higher in Game Two with Serbia able to put something of a stranglehold on a knockout spot with a second consecutive victory while the Swiss can add to their dark horse status by following up with another positive result. World Cup 2018 Simulator Single Game Delivering a suitable encore, however, has at times eluded Switzerland who eight years ago in South Africa beat eventual champions Spain in their World Cup opener but failed to advance out of the group stage. The Swiss are not seen as contenders for the trophy but the Alpine nation are unbeaten in their last six matches, including draws with two of the heavy favourites - Brazil and Spain. "I hope that people will take notice of us and take us seriously, sometimes there's a lack of recognition and that's a pity because we played very well," said Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic. The Swiss, as usual, are well organised and physical but will not intimidate the Serbs, who showed against Costa Rica that they too embrace the tough going. That could mean plenty of cards being flashed by the referee in a rough and tumble affair at Kaliningrad Stadium. While the Serbs have an attacking reputation both teams each scored just once in the opening matches, both from set pieces. World Cup whatsapp promo Switzerland's Steven Zuber rose high to head home from a corner to earn the draw against Brazil, while Aleksandar Kolarov curled home a superb free kick for Serbia's winner. "With respect to Switzerland we have analysed all three opponents," said Serbia coach Mladen Krstajic, after his first competitive game in charge. "We know everything about Switzerland now we are going to watch for some details (from) when they played Brazil to make sure we have not missed any details." What are the odds? Serbia 17/10 Switzerland 2/1 Draw 21/10 What's our prediction? Switzerland will be buzzing after their gutsy 1-1 draw with Brazil while Serbia got their campaign off to a winning start.

Deep in thought or suffering from the burden of carrying Argentina's World Cup hopes on his shoulders? That is what fans asked themselves when the camera panned to Lionel Messi during the national anthems before Argentina's 3-0 defeat to Croatia, which leaves them needing snookers to reach the knockout stages. Russia 2018 could prove 30-year-old Messi's last chance to win the World Cup, and he cut a pained expression before Thursday's nights dire team performance in which he was peripheral. Clutching a hand to his forehead, Messi looked as if he was nursing a migraine- or perhaps pent-up exasperation with the disorganised rabble he was asked to rescue. It adumbrated a frustrating evening for the Barcelona forward, as Argentina's defensive troubles reared their head throughout and goalkeeper Willy Caballero's howler was responsible for Croatia's opener. Messi is denied by Ivan Rakitic Credit: AFP As the game ran away from Argentina and a barrage of frustrated tackles flew in, Messi's shoulders slumped in dejection as he stared at another lost international tournament. Argentina Jorge Sampaoli had called on his team to not wait for Messi to drag them through the mire, but he was left too isolated and touched the ball only twice in Croatia's penalty area during the second half. Messi has now had more shots on goal than any other player so far at this World Cup with 12, but has failed to score with any of them. Messi's genius could not make up for Argentina's shortcomings Credit: AP Argentina have looked unbalanced in both of their group matches, despite an array of attacking talent that includes Gonzalo Higuain, Paulo Dybala and Sergio Aguero besides Messi. It is worth remembering that Messi is the reason that Argentina, who had three different managers in a troubled qualification campaign, made it to Russia. He scored a hat-trick in a 3-1 away victory to Ecuador that ensured the two-time World Champions made it to this summer's finals.

What was wrong with Lionel Messi? Pained pre-match pose encapsulates Argentina's night
Deep in thought or suffering from the burden of carrying Argentina's World Cup hopes on his shoulders? That is what fans asked themselves when the camera panned to Lionel Messi during the national anthems before Argentina's 3-0 defeat to Croatia, which leaves them needing snookers to reach the knockout stages. Russia 2018 could prove 30-year-old Messi's last chance to win the World Cup, and he cut a pained expression before Thursday's nights dire team performance in which he was peripheral. Clutching a hand to his forehead, Messi looked as if he was nursing a migraine- or perhaps pent-up exasperation with the disorganised rabble he was asked to rescue. It adumbrated a frustrating evening for the Barcelona forward, as Argentina's defensive troubles reared their head throughout and goalkeeper Willy Caballero's howler was responsible for Croatia's opener. Messi is denied by Ivan Rakitic Credit: AFP As the game ran away from Argentina and a barrage of frustrated tackles flew in, Messi's shoulders slumped in dejection as he stared at another lost international tournament. Argentina Jorge Sampaoli had called on his team to not wait for Messi to drag them through the mire, but he was left too isolated and touched the ball only twice in Croatia's penalty area during the second half. Messi has now had more shots on goal than any other player so far at this World Cup with 12, but has failed to score with any of them. Messi's genius could not make up for Argentina's shortcomings Credit: AP Argentina have looked unbalanced in both of their group matches, despite an array of attacking talent that includes Gonzalo Higuain, Paulo Dybala and Sergio Aguero besides Messi. It is worth remembering that Messi is the reason that Argentina, who had three different managers in a troubled qualification campaign, made it to Russia. He scored a hat-trick in a 3-1 away victory to Ecuador that ensured the two-time World Champions made it to this summer's finals.

Uber pushing for more electric car rides with driver bonuses, partnerships

Uber said it hears the future coming, and it's relatively quiet.

This week the company announced a yearlong program to provide up to 5 million electric-vehicle (EV) rides through its ride-sharing app in a small number of North American cities.

The so-called "EV Champions Initiative" will roll out in Austin, Texas; Los Angeles; Montreal; Sacramento, California; San Diego; San Francisco; and Seattle. Similar programs were already launched in Portland, Oregon, and Pittsburgh.

According to the Los Angeles Times, drivers in certain cities such as San Diego, San Francisco, and Pittsburgh may earn up to $1 per ride bonuses, up to $20 in a week, for providing EV rides. Uber drivers in Los Angeles don't get the bonus, according to the report.

Uber announced that they would partner with a broad range of nonprofits, thinktanks, and a university to study EV usage in those cities.

MUST READ: Uber costs less than driving in some major cities

In addition to bonuses for driving EVs in select cities, Uber said it would help steer drivers toward applicable federal, state, local, and utility incentives to partially offset the cost of purchasing the cars. In Canada, Uber will provide ride-sharing EV drivers with membership in AVEQ, which offers lower insurance premiums and advocates for wide-spread EV adoption.

The Uber app also will advise EV drivers of trips taking 30 minutes or longer to help mitigate range concerns.

Uber will also make available information about EVs for drivers who want to help educate others about EV ownership and adoption.

The ride-sharing company didn't specify what electric vehicles would be eligible for the program, or whether they would include plug-in hybrid vehicles such as the Chevrolet Volt or Toyota Prius Prime.
