England's new national football centre will be officially opened on Tuesday with its chairman insisting St George's Park will be the key to securing the World Cup.

The £105m centre near Burton will be opened by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and will be the permanent base for all the England teams, as well as a training centre for coaches and a centre of excellence for sports science and medicine.

David Sheepshanks, the former Football League and Ipswich chairman who is now chairman of St George's Park, said: "People ask me will St George's help England win the World Cup? My answer is absolutely yes. When will happen? Let's look at the long term and say in the 2020s."
