Raheem Sterling, England on collision course with Belgium in World Cup final

The fan on the bus in Wolverhampton

The bookmakers have France as the competition favourites, while Croatia - who toiled to a penalty shoot-out victory over Russian Federation on Saturday - are considered the underdogs. Croatia will now face off with England, and France with Belgium, in the semifinals this week for a chance to lift the trophy on July 15, the last day of the tournament.

Gareth Southgate thinks England could get an even bigger reception than the heroes of 1966 if they manage to win the World Cup.

"Tomorrow we have to give everything to get there".

He remains one of the most respected managers of his generation however, and had words of praise for Gareth Southgate and the class of 2018.

"They have fast lads and a great manager [Gareth Southgate]", Capello said of the Three Lions, speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, as per football-italia.

"No one wants to go home".

"He [Southgate] is helped by a context like the Premier League in which clubs launch youngsters without being conditioned".

Elon Musk's submarine 'not practical' for Thai cave mission, rescue head says
Some divers rescuing the boys trapped in a cave in northern Thailand have traversed about 10 miles (16 km) over the past two days. Still, health officials were wary of possible infections "because we have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave".

"The talent was there, but his intuition was [Harry] Maguire in a three-man defence, the choice of Pickford and managing tension".

Asked what he would be demanding from his players, the England coach told ITV: "To be able to keep doing what we have been doing, play with real defensive discipline, good organisation, tactical awareness and then with the ball play with the freedom and expression that we have and the same patterns and movements that we have shown".

Sterling did produce an encouraging display in the quarter-final win over Sweden and was a constant threat throughout the 2-0 success in Samara.

"[Kylian] Mbappé and Neymar are the successors of [Cristiano] Ronaldo and [Lionel] Messi".

With so much creativity and speed available, Southgate may opt to introduce Eric Dier alongside Henderson to firm up the spine, at the expense of an attacking midfielder.

Will Harry Kane be lifting the World Cup on Sunday afternoon in Moscow?

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is really fast and his combination with Harry Kane is really risky".
