World Cup semi-final England v Croatia

Gareth Southgate and Jordan Henderson

The players have spoken about how they have been keeping track online of the scenes back home while Southgate believes winning in Russian Federation would be bigger than 1966, the only time England have won the World Cup, due to the global reach and worldwide connectivity of the game.

In Frome someone got creative with the town signs and changed them to "It's Coming Home".

"It is important that we stay like that, keep going and hopefully we achieve something to make it even more special to get to the final and win it".

Expectations around the England team had scarcely been as low as they were when, in 2016, Southgate stepped in to steady the ship.

He said: "Gareth Southgate is the best manager to ever manage England".

"I think @schofe really suits a waistcoat". They worked in '98 and we worked today, we reached out target to get to the final. "We worked hard. I scored but we delivered a good match and I'm very proud of everyone. We were a group of guys having a lot of fun, enjoying our football, learning and improving all the time - and that's what these lads have done".

"It's coming home, that's all I'm going to say".

England vs Croatia Start Time & Odds
Former England manager Glenn Hoddle is concerned with Harry Kane's fitness ahead of Wednesday's World Cup semi-final against Croatia.

Folk ensemble Partizan FM, who describe themselves as "the most upmarket folk band in Russia", have produced a quintessentially provincial twist on the song now on every England fan's lips.

Rangers manager Gerrard - who featured in seven major tournaments for England but never went further than the quarter-finals - said: "I've been so pleased to watch the players perform".

The pair will battle again on Wednesday, and Alli has told The Guardian that he hopes to embarrass Modric again with another nutmeg on the global stage this time - but his focus will be on attempting to help England reach the World Cup final. We know what's at stake and in such moments you forget any fatigue you may feel because this is maybe a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The England women's side are now in the qualifying stages for the 2019 Women's World Cup in France.

"We want people to celebrate and enjoy themselves but not at the expense of law-abiding fans and emergency services' resources".

"We're only the second team to reach a semi-final out of our country, and that's quite significant".
