  • Raheem Sterling England

More specifically, he's anxious about Raheem Sterling.

But others realise Sterling's importance to the England team, his movement and pace causing problems to the opposition.

Sterling and co face Croatia on Wednesday evening, with the victor facing either France or Belgium in the final on Sunday in what is now an all-European affair, the third time this will have happened in four tournaments.

"You're doing great, so stop worrying about scoring and just play your game".

Sterling has had opportunities to score in Russian Federation, one of which came during the second half of their quarter-final win over Sweden on Saturday.

Jones, who made just nine worldwide appearances for Wales, believes Sterling relies to heavily on his speed and slammed his finishing so far this World Cup.

Sterling missed an excellent chance to score against Sweden.

The group was found nine days later in a cramped chamber 2.5 miles inside the cave system by two British volunteer rescue divers . Efforts are expected to restart on Monday as low water levels in the cave have provided a brief window for a safer rescue.

"But he has become anxious about getting on the scoresheet".

"We have seen the way the country has got behind us and the happiness we are giving out and it is fantastic to be a part of".

It starts with Luka Modric in midfield, who is in contention to win the Golden Ball award.

"Because if we don't do that, they will definitely punish us".

His global record is really poor, and he will be the first one to acknowledge that. He's quick, he's dynamic and hopefully the goals are going to come now in these two last important games'.

The 51-year-old coach, who has only been in charge of the national side since October, said: "I wouldn't say there are any glaring weaknesses - they are in the semi-finals, that says it all".
