The England boss was amused at the prospect of fans both in Russian Federation and back at home observing Waistcoat Wednesday in tribute to the man who has guided the nation to within perhaps just 90 minutes of a first final since 1966.

"England has been the most impressive team so far".

The 27-year-old created more chances (6) in a single World Cup game than any other player in the tournament so far, and in the Three Lions' 2-0 quarter-final win over Sweden, Trippier had passing accuracy rate of 75%, whilst also putting in ten risky crosses during the 90 minutes.

Kane is now leading the Golden Boot race at this summer's World Cup with six goals, helping his side to the semi-finals of the competition in the process.

"If Southgate wins the World Cup he 100% deserves a knighthood", Ross Patrick, the man behind the idea, told the Press Association. Anyway, we won and the staff made this big thing about my lucky socks, saying I had to wear them next game.

"We keep looking to break the barriers down". We have had the chance to make a difference.

England play Croatia Wednesday night at 7pm.

The song was released before Euro '96, when Southgate missed England's crucial penalty as they lost a semi-final shootout to Germany at Wembley. We know what's at stake and in such moments you forget any fatigue you may feel because this is maybe a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

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?'".

"I've had lots of lovely messages from people and some big influences in my life, all of whom have played a part in my sitting here today, so I'm very grateful for support and help I've had across my 30 years in football, and of course from my parents before that".

"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".
