Football fans in and around the Fylde coast and Preston are starting to believe England can win the World Cup after Gareth Southgate's men beat Sweden to reach the tournament's semi-finals.

The last time England reached the semis was in 1990 in Italy, when it lost out to Germany in a penalty shootout.

How they got there Croatia after winning Group D with a 100 per cent record have had to grit their way through the knockout stages with penalty shoot-out wins over Denmark and hosts Russian Federation.

In the final eight, England were tasked against Sweden and that match appeared to be England's best game to date as they were now more direct in their approach and were not afraid of attacking the Swedish defence. "We're not going home just yet".

But as the saying goes, "if you can't beat them, join them", so some happy couples made a decision to put the game on for their guests, to stem all the covert football-watching. If they can continue, Sweden has a good chance.

Instead, the French scored three goals to blow what had been a close game wide open.

Vermitsky said his client feels bad about the situation and didn't intend to discriminate against the woman. They determined that Abhulimen had a pool access card which provided her with proper access to the pool.

England trio Harry Kane, Kyle Walker and Harry Maguire are looking to guide their side to only their second World Cup final.

Supporters almost blew the roof off Bradleys Sports Bar at AFC Fyle in Wesham when the Three Lions scored the goals which gave England a 2-0 win.

Federation Internationale de Football Association are urging England supporters still considering a last-minute trip to Russia 2018 to check the official website for returned tickets from fans of other countries.

"We approach each game similarly, but Russian Federation in Moscow would be an incredible game to be involved in".

In the other semi-final, in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday, Belgium, who conquered Neymar's Brazil in the quarter-finals, take on France, who saw off Uruguay.
