Gareth Southgate ‘not ready for journey to end’

Gareth Southgate ‘not ready for journey to end’

England will face Croatia in Moscow this evening in their first semi-final in the tournament since 1990, and Southgate does not expect his young team to freeze on the big occasion.

France await the winners in the final, but Southgate is convinced the future is bright whatever the outcome. There has been an element of good fortune to the way the draw has fallen for them, but England have so far passed every test they've faced.

'The hunger of players has been there for everyone to see, we are proud of the style they have played.

Here are the six England players who are most likely to get a career-changing move after their exploits in Russian Federation.

But British Airways, which has seen a 700 percent increase in searches for flights to Russian Federation on its website since England's penalty shootout win over Colombia last week, has now released hundreds more seats on Moscow flights by using bigger planes.

Actor Hugh Grant tweeted about the piece of clothing ahead of England's quarter-final victory over Sweden and the following day BBC presenter Andrew Marr opened his show in a waistcoat as a tribute to Southgate.

England women are now trying to qualify for next year's World Cup.

Premier League clubs West Ham and Everton are reportedly keen on the 22-year-old's services next season, as both sides look to break into the top-half of England's top-flight. They'll be feeling a bit of everything - you've been there for the extra week now, you've been there for six, seven weeks, away from home and there's family and friends coming over.

"The way we've been received here has been fantastic", Southgate said at a pre-match press conference at Luzhniki Stadium. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section. You can't play much better than they did.

"They are proud to wear the shirt. You deserve this moment - Football's Coming Home! W".

"Football's Coming Home" was originally a song by Baddiel, Skinner, and the Lightning Seeds that was made for the England football team during Euro 96.

Southgate's side have been buoyed by more than just an anthemic pop song, though.

Speaking to Yahoo Sport, the former Germany global was glowing in his praise of Southgate's side, who will take on Croatia in a World Cup semi-final on Wednesday night.

Southgate, who was surprised by the vest craze, said he never considered himself a "fashion icon" but loved the enthusiasm from supporters across the UK. "It has a slightly different feel for me, but it's nice to hear people enjoying it again", Southgate said.

Warnings to England fans and players had ranged from the supposed threat lurking from masses of hooligans, to players being seduced by Kremlin-backed 'honey traps'. "It's up to us now which games we play in".

"Those emotions are what drive us, that is our petrol and how we have come back to a semi-final after 20 years".

Croatia are in the last four for the first time since 1998 but they had to survive two penalty shoot-outs against Denmark and Russian Federation to make it this far.
