Can Croatia stop football from rocketing home

England have been rewriting history in Russian Federation, and Southgate is hoping there will be more to come as they play their most important World Cup game since losing to West Germany on penalties in the semi-finals of Italia '90.

The Three Lions face Croatia in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Wednesday (19:00 BST) in their first World Cup semi-final for 28 years.

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

England play Croatia Wednesday night at 7pm.

The 12 boys on the "Wild Boars" team and their coach were trapped in a cave for more than two weeks, and were all successfully rescued on Tuesday. "You don't want to watch it back, but we knew how important it was, going into the World Cup, that we had to go back through it to come out stronger".

This is only the second time the model has changed its forecast all tournament and did so after its pre-competition favourites Brazil crashed out 2-1 against Belgium in the quarter-finals.

Before an evening program, Trump met with Germany's Angela Merkel and France's Emmanuel Macron. Trump's criticism, which he has been repeating on Twitter for days, is uniquely poisonous.

"It's been a fantastic World Cup, of course it's always better for us because we've won some games".

"Southgate wants his players and his team to be themselves and to be together. We've learned from our mistakes, which is the most important thing, and we've made things right", he said. He knew there was a chance to make history.

The win led to a lot of off-key renditions of God Save The Queen and Three Lions (Football's Coming Home) in pubs across both England and Australia.

"But regardless of that, I think the football across the board has been really exciting, really entertaining, and the hosting of the tournament and the cities that have hosted it has been outstanding".

"They're getting blamed for what my generation and generations that followed did".

"I'll tell you a story about me and superstitions", Southgate said. "We're not working much now so you can imagine what it will be like if we win".
