Croatia identify England danger man for semi-final

England have managed to improve as a national squad under Gareth Southgate, who is leading the team in their first global tournament since the 2016 European Championship, where former manager Roy Hodgson's contract ended following a 2-1 loss to Iceland. I just get emotional when I think about my boy on these type of pictures with his team mates and the World Cup.

Croatia emerged through extra-time and spot-kicks against Denmark in the last 16 before going through the same ordeal again against Russian Federation in the quarter-finals.

But with the euphoria of Saturday's win having turned into focus on Wednesday's match with Croatia, Trippier says England will be ready to go again in Moscow.

"We've talked, touched briefly, certainly, on the team which won". It has also been 52 years since England have become the world champions.

'He had to work away for long periods of time to pay for my boots and for petrol so my mum could get me to training.

A decade ago, England had one of the best set-piece takers in soccer in David Beckham, whose precision and ability to curl the ball in from the wing was an important weapon at major tournaments.

"I'd love to be able to do it with however many millions who are watching at home but the supporters who are here, they're singing and I know what they've been through and I met lots of them before we came. I was in Aldi yesterday and said to the checkout staff that it'd have been nice if they could've closed early for the last England game because nobody is going to shop through that anyway".

Man Utd chiefs confident agreeing Willian fee with Chelsea
The Brazilian has always given his all when playing for us and it would be a big loss for us should he end up at another club. However, he won't be cheap, with reports in Spain claiming that Chelsea want upwards of €50m for his signature.

On Ferguson's comments, Alli added: "I haven't watched too much of Gazza, but I know enough to know he's a legend".

"But of course you get an accumulation of fatigue through a tournament, that's why we took the decision we did against Belgium more than anything. We'll just have to assess the bodies".

"So to be here, to be a part of it, leading this team out, I'm so proud".

"It's wonderful, because I was one of those kids growing up who wanted to play for England".

I can't see anything but an England win.

After the tension of extra-time and penalties in a bad-tempered clash with Colombia, England's progress to the last four was relatively serene in easing past Sweden 2-0 on Saturday. That's the only word I can describe it because we're all a family.
