Former Sheffield United midfielder full of praise for Harry Maguire

Former Sheffield United midfielder full of praise for Harry Maguire

The Tottenham forward is the tournament's leading scorer with six goals, putting him level with Gary Lineker's 1986 haul, ahead of Wednesday's semi-final against Croatia.

"We feel proud to make the fans proud because that's what we wanted to do when we set out", Kane said.

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

He said: "You could always see that Harry had something about him".

Maguire also netted the opener in England's quarter-final victory against Sweden, as they progressed to the last four for the first time since 1990. But it would be a shame to be in Russian Federation for a couple of weeks and not get a chance to come to Moscow so we intend to stay there for the very last game. He wasn't even guaranteed a starting place in Gareth Southgate's side, but he took his chance well against Tunisia, and since then, he has only got better - or so they say. "As a group we're really together and the spirit is really good. It's just little stuff to maybe give us an edge". Everyone wants to finish the job and we are excited to try and do that.

"I know loads of fans have come here and some have gone back home, but we are doing this for all of them".

In the video the youngster, wearing an England shirt, unwrapped the trophy and held it close to him as a nurse helped him hold the "really heavy" replica.

"It is wonderful to be part of this World Cup so far and I get the feeling from the boys that we don't want to go home".

"They showed from the games I've seen so far that they play direct football and they are very fast. We managed to stop Messi and Eriksen so hopefully we can stop Kane", Dalic was quoted as saying by BBC Sports.
