Gareth Southgate's England revolution at World Cup 2018

Russia Soccer WCup Russia Croatia

England manager Gareth Southgate has opted to keep a small personal guest-list for his side's World Cup semi-final against Croatia after deciding "big matches are a bit like weddings".

Les Blue will meet the victor of the second semifinal between Croatia and England in the final in Moscow on Sunday.

"We've won after scoring in the last minute, won after conceding in the last minute, come through extra time and penalties. That's why I think they can go all the way". Wednesday evening is a huge opportunity for our boys to do what many of us thought was impossible before the World Cup began and reach the Final. England is set to face Croatia on Wednesday in the FIFA World Cup semifinal. Biggest win in the tournament. Either football is one step closer to "coming home" for England, or, as the first verse tells it, "Everyone seems to know the score, they've seen it all before/ They just know, they're so sure/ That England's gonna throw it away, gonna blow it away". He knew there was a chance to make history.

But Southgate revealed he could not listen to it for many years.

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'.

England will play in a World Cup semi-final for the first time since Italia 90, but Southgate insists his life outside of the game will not change if England progress to the final, or even win the tournament. They have real enthusiasm for these players, not only for the way they have played but also for the way they have conducted themselves.

"The Museum of London have. announced their plans to acquire one of Gareth Southgate's suits as part of their permanent collection", it said in a statement.

He said: "We are four million people, four million coaches and four million players". "We've got to this point because the collective has been so strong", Southgate said after the quarterfinal win over Sweden on Saturday.
