France advance to 2018 World Cup final

It is coming home? Odds on England World Cup win shorten after Sweden win

Gareth Southgate leads England into a semi-final for the first time since 1990, knowing Croatia are likely to provide a much sterner test than quarter-final opponents Sweden.

So what are you waiting for?

England captain Harry Kane is adamant the Three Lions can rewrite the history books by going all the way and winning the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"I've seen lots of ex-players and had lots of messages from ex-players as well who have the same view, so we're really pleased with his contribution, and his work-rate as well without the ball has been incredible for us".

Can you name the starting XI from Southgate's match in charge? "So, they should - we've got trust in them doing that".

"We've talked, touched briefly, certainly, on the team which won [the World Cup in 1966], how they're still held and revered", Southgate told reporters.

"We've been one of the youngest teams in the tournament, the least experienced, but we were never quite sure how far this team could go", said Southgate.

Alli and Modric will meet again in the middle of the park, and not only did they go head to head for Tottenham and Real Madrid respectively in a Champions League game last season, but also in the summer of 2015.

The Langley Road alehouse - situated close to where England's manager was born - is rallying behind the Three Lions boss.

Here are the six England players who are most likely to get a career-changing move after their exploits in Russian Federation. I'm not going to focus on that.

Pickford's rise from non-league football to worldwide stardom has been nothing short of inspirational to any professional footballer in the game.

A campaign is gathering pace for the flawless waistcoat to be mass produced, England official's waistcoat, with "It's Coming Home" stitched into it after a cheeky advert by Huawei which went viral. We still needed the win but I thought, "No, it's ridiculous".

"I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly", said Southgate.

"I know my strengths and I know I'm no David Beckham!"

He said: "It's a special feeling to know that the people back home and out here in Russian Federation are enjoying the experience just as much as we are.

Incredible scenes have filled the town centre after the team progressed through the competition reaching the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years.

Best of luck and let us know how you do.
