Gareth Southgate ‘not ready for journey to end’

  • Russia v Croatia – FIFA World Cup 2018 – Quarter Final – Fisht Stadium

Twitter user Russell Hobbs said: "Wouldn't it be fabulous if we all went to work on Wednesday in a waistcoat to honour Gareth Southgate guiding England to a World Cup semi final?"

Pogba and France will advance to the World Cup Final on Sunday, where it'll take on the victor of Croatia vs. England - who face off on Wednesday - for a chance to bring home its second World Cup championship.

Southgate is convinced the future is bright whatever the outcome.

On the eve of the game, England manager Southgate said he hoped the team's successful run at the tournament would help unify the country after "some hard moments" in recent years - an apparent reference to Brexit.

However, despite his praise for Croatia, Gerrard believes England are a "dangerous" side, and is confident they will set up a World Cup final against France.

"The improvement and the hunger in the players is very clear for everyone to see". We have played five games, but being exhausted can not be an alibi. Biggest win in the tournament.

The 51-year-old made it his mission to change that and the results have been spectacular, most notably a 3-0 demolition of Argentina in the group stage, although the side has needed penalties to get past Denmark and hosts Russian Federation in the knockout stages.

The Swiss lost his serve, putting the match in Anderson's big-serving hands. "It just happened to be that today wasn't the day". Djokovic defeated 24 seed Kei Nishikori in four sets on Wednesday at Wimbledon , 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, to advance.

All over the country similar mass screenings are planned as England attempt to reach just the second World Cup final in their history. "We are looking to break all barriers". "We are all really excited and want England to get through to the final".

Following in the footsteps of the heroes of 1966 had looked a pipe dream this summer, but Southgate has created an impressive bond and shaped his promising team into World Cup challengers.

"We are just going to stick to what we have been doing all the way through". We have had the chance to make a difference. Our supporters have had a long time of suffering in terms of football.

Predicting a "difficult and intriguing match for both teams", the Liverpool centre-back dismissed the notion that Croatia are at a disadvantage because they have had to play 120 minutes twice in a week.

"Our country's been through some hard moments in terms of unity and football has the power to do that".

The line is taken from a 1996 song called Three Lions, released by the Lightning Seeds and comedians Baddiel & Skinner for Euro '96, which was held in England.

Gareth Southgate and the Three Lions have already won the hearts and minds of the nation but must overcome Croatia and France if they are going to end 52 years of hurt. "It has a slightly different feel for me, but it's nice to hear people enjoying it again".
