William's call to England: It's coming home!

It is coming home? Odds on England World Cup win shorten after Sweden win

So what are you waiting for?

In addition to touching on England's preparations for the nation's biggest game in almost three decades, Southgate took the time to praise World Cup hosts Russian Federation.

The 28-year-old has been a revelation for his country as a midfield pivot in Gareth Southgate's 3-5-2 set-up, playing four out of England's five tournament matches so far over in Russian Federation.

Gazza was of course one of the star players the last time England played in an World Cup semi-final back in 1990.

According to the black box simulations, Belgium will edge out France while England will defeat Croatia in the semi-finals, which are taking place on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively. The victor advances to Sunday's final against France or Belgium, which also will be at Luzkniki Stadium. The only thing coming home from Russian Federation would be Gareth Southgate and his players, and if they were lucky they would do so having not been humiliated. Admittedly, I've only been paying attention to England's national soccer team for the past four years.

"The way we've been received here has been fantastic", Southgate said at a pre-match press conference at Luzhniki Stadium.


The England women's side are now in the qualifying stages for the 2019 Women's World Cup in France. We want this to be a family-friendly occasion and a chance for England fans young and old to show the positive spirit of football to the country and the world.

"I've got a amusing feeling that the momentum is so good, and, you know, especially now that we're all going to turn up with special Gareth waistcoats, and that can only help can't it", said fan Lee Walkup, 50.

England is ranked 12th in the world and Croatia 20th.

Several people were photographed on top of the ambulance. That's why we want our punters to wear waistcoats in tribute to the man himself.

Asked what is was all about, a slightly bemused Southgate said: "That's exactly what I asked our fitness coach a well, 'What is that all about?'".
