English fans erupt at that Kieran Tripper goal

  • Belgian soccer fans celebrate their team's World Cup victory against Japan in Jette a Brussels municipality on July 2

"We've all grown up watching England and to represent your country at a semi-final of a World Cup, there's no better feeling".

In England too, World Cup fever has been building with Gareth Southgate´s young team on the cusp of reaching the country´s first World Cup since they won it on home soil in 1966.

Tickets to watch England play their World Cup semi-final against Croatia at Peterborough's World Cup street party are running out. Before the tournament started, there were doubts over us.

France boss Didier Deschamps was also full of praise for Pogba's display against Belgium.

"It was a tough game, a 50-50 game, I'm sure we'll look back at stuff we could have done better but we worked as hard as we could".

"It's been great to get to this stage but we wanted to go on and win it". They came back from a goal down against England.

Les Bleus are considered by many as the stronger of the two - but the French midfielder refutes this status.

Protests will culminate in a 70,000-strong march through London from Portland Place to Trafalgar Square. All of these incidents added pressure on May to revoke her invitation to Trump.

"It hurts, it'll hurt for a while, but we can hold our heads up high". He was more creative in terms of recovery of the ball, one-on-ones, he performed very well.

Southgate and his players are sure to be greeted as heroes when they return from Russian Federation, but underlying frustration will linger after missing their shot at glory.

They'll have a little less than four days to rest up for the final against France, which has finished all of its games in regulation and has an extra day to prepare, having beaten Belgium on Tuesday.

"I was just changing my lens as the players ran towards me", said Cortez to AFP, who was positioned next to the pitchside advertising boards. They have played 90 minutes more than us - I don't know if it's a disadvantage for them or if they're going to want to show that they want to win even more.

Croatia's strength clearly lies in the central-midfield department that includes Real's Luka Modric and Barca's Ivan Rakitic. They have done very well and they want the victory, like us.
