England fans make late dash to Russian Federation for World Cup semi-final

TOPSHOT- England's defender Harry Maguire heads to score the opener during the Russia 2018 World Cup quarter-final football match between Sweden and England at the Samara Arena

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.

"It had tactical understanding, it had technically good players".

Just three epic games to play (and one "well we may as well while we're here" encounter) - until Russian Federation 2018 announces its ultimate victor; Vladimir Putin, aside.

It became an instant hit and was belted out in pubs, night clubs, on the streets and in football stadiums throughout the tournament as an England team featuring centre back Southgate reached the semi-finals.

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

In-fact, 72% of England's goals have come from set-pieces.

"We were looking at doing something with an England player from the 1998 World Cup and Gareth agreed to do the book, which I was going to write".

But this is not the England manager's first visit to the world stage. "It seems that [Zlatko] Dalic has prepared a surprise for the English". "So for me it has a slightly different feel", Southgate told reporters on Tuesday, before adding: "But it's nice to hear people are listening to it again".

"This team is nowhere near the level they will be capable of, partly because of age and partly because over the years they'll have more big-match experience".

Jenas and Modric played in midfield together at Spurs, though the Croatian has gone on to hit even greater heights, winning the Champions League four times and La Liga once with Real Madrid.

"We are excited about the future but we want to make the most of this opportunity as well".

His first very almost was, too, with current Ipswich Town media manager Steve Pearce slated to write "Gareth Southgate: A World Cup Adventure" ahead of the tournament in 1998.
