Police warn England World Cup revellers after weekend's ‘shocking behaviour’

Sir Bobby, who led England to their last World Cup semi-final in Italy in 1990, saw his team fall at the last hurdle when they were beaten by West Germany on penalties.

The world now gets to see France's luxury squad, collectively valued in excess of $1 billion and headlined by teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe, in another major final. "That's what we want to see from him".

Marks & Spencer, which has been the official suit supplier to the England team since 2007, said demand for waistcoats has risen 35% thanks to what they say is "the Gareth Southgate effect". Now, I predict that the victor of the France-Belgium semi-final fixture will go on to win the final.

Belgium paid the price for failing to take their chances against France but will now have to shake off their disappointment and focus on finishing third at the World Cup, coach Roberto Martinez said after his team's defeat in the semifinal.

Thoughts of history and playing greats of the past are never far away at World Cup semi-finals. They should beat Croatia.

"They are a really young team and so nice".

"I have never been so excited as I am now". "Maybe in the World Cup or Euros (before) some players didn't have the feeling of winning at all". But Gareth Southgate's stars can expect more than half of the 81,000 crowd to be cheering them on.

"The results were below the level and quality of our players".

"We don't have renowned, world-class players yet but we've got lots of good young players who are showing on the young stage that they can be courageous on the ball, try and play the right way, have shown some mental resilience". Everyone has been curious as to how Maguire, who looks like he could have passed as one of Malfoy's mates in Harry Potter, has ended up with such a massive noggin.

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.
