Southgate proud of England support after 20 years of personal hurt

Gareth Southgate and Jordan Henderson

Gareth Southgate's England side stand on the brink of history in Russian Federation, a game away from their first World Cup final since 1966.

Mia Šetula, a Croatian student at Bournemouth University, admitted she will be cheering for England's opponents tonight.

It's been over 600 days since Gareth Southgate took charge of his first England game.

. "All of my friends are England supporters and, seeing as I'm likely the only Croatian they know, they've all called me out to wish me good luck for the semi-final!"

Croatia looked vulnerable from set-pieces against Russian Federation, conceding the equaliser in extra-time via a set-play, so this is an area England can exploit.

Leicester City will want a huge fee for England's World Cup hero Harry Maguire, who is reportedly on the radar of Tottenham Hotspur.

He said: "I think Croatia have a better side".

"It's only when you pass the group stage, when you lose the teams who are not at the right level, that the World Cup really starts for me".

Both of his goals came from set-plays, and given he is averaging 0.29 xG per 90 minutes, he can be expected to get at least one chance in this game.

"I don't think England could go on to win the World Cup, I think France and Belgium have got too much".

All we can say is that for two of these four sides that answer will come sooner rather than later, as today (*producer jump zoom*): one of these nations is going home. I felt something odd in my knee and after talking with the doctor on the sideline we decided I should come off.

About a dozen England fans passing through Heathrow wore dark blue waistcoats over their T-shirts in tribute to Southgate who has taken to wearing a waistcoat on the touch-line along with suit pants and a dress shirt and tie.

Waistcoat mania has well and truly become something else to the point where tomorrow is also being referred to as '#WaistcoatWednesday' in support of England's crucial semi-final game against Croatia.
