Matt Le Tissier's plan for England to reach the World Cup final

Matt Le Tissier's plan for England to reach the World Cup final

Southgate has done what only Ipswich and England legends Sir Alf Ramsey and Sir Bobby Robson have done before him, as he prepares his side for this evening's World Cup semi-final against Croatia in Moscow. "Croatia don't have the sort of attacking players who can really make something out of nothing, so Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic will be relied upon to engineer opportunities and we need to limit their time on the ball".

Southgate - whose stock has risen as England have impressed in Russian Federation - has been wearing a trademark waistcoat throughout the World Cup.

Southgate, though, says his side have not even begun to realise their potential.

England will also be keen to avoid further penalty drama as they face a side who have won both of their knockout matches, against Denmark and then hosts Russian Federation, via shootouts.

"We've made several pieces of history".

Scott Ratcliffe and his 10-year-old son Eliott, who has broken up from school, were in the queue to pick up their Fan IDs, having arrived in Moscow on Tuesday.

"I'm certainly proud of the support we're receiving".

Her boyfriend's dad, who was photographing the whole thing, captured the moment the shark bit her and pulled her away. Still, at the end of the day, she said she's "fortunate that [she] still [has her] arm and [her] life".

"We keep looking to break the barriers down".

"Our supporters and our country has had a long time suffering in terms of football".

"He knows what he wants and he wears it extremely well but it's always blues and dark colours and he brightens it up with a shirt".

"Our country's been through some hard moments in terms of unity and football has the power to do that".

England's progress in Russian Federation has revived the Three Lions anthem - which includes the line "football's coming home".

Waistcoat sales have rocketed thanks to the Southgate effect according to retailer Marks & Spencer, the official suit supplier to the England team. But while the tournament was a huge success and is fondly remembered by most, it ended in misery for Southgate when he missed the decisive penalty in the shootout against rivals Germany.

Speaking to Sky News, the ex-footballer said: "Football's coming home, I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly". "It has a slightly different feel for me, but it's nice to hear people enjoying it again".
