Gareth Southgate has ‘racehorse trainer’s eye’ for England injuries

Gareth Southgate has ‘racehorse trainer’s eye’ for England injuries

Three Lions Throwback The last time England reached the World Cup semi-finals was in 1990, when they lost a penalty shootout against eventual champions West Germany.

The Euro '96 anthem managed to topple Drake from the top spot, clocking up over one million streams in just one day.

England has to win two more games to bring the World Cup home, but the enthusiasm some soccer fans displayed after their team advanced to the semi-finals met worldwide expectations. "I think we all know that".

"We can't wait to get going now against Croatia", he added. Sweden are a tough team to play against and they showed that in their other games but in the end it was a good night for us.

"We weren't aware of everything going on in the country as we were kept in a bubble", said Hurst, who added that none of the other teams still in Russian Federation should frighten England.

"One hundred per cent I think you can see that in the way that we play, everybody the whole 23, willing to put everything aside, whatever their personal interests might be, purely for the team to be successful", he said.

"The only team I would have feared playing against is Brazil", he said.

"I would say I would be disappointed if we didn't beat them".

"I said at the start of this that over this summer, this is our family".

"No-one wants to go home". Two former Paris Saint-Germain team-mates entered into a wager ahead of a quarter-final clash between their respective nations at World Cup 2018.

As the hysteria back home following Saturday's quarter-final win proves, so are the rest of us - and long may it continue, well, for at least another week.

"But for us, it's all about the experience".

Best of luck and let us know how you do.

And so the deal is set, and with social media as their witness - eyes will now be set on the pair to ensure they carry out their respective forfeits.

That fervour has taken captain Harry Kane's popularity up a notch, with England's Golden Boot leader now tantalisingly close to lifting the World Cup.
