England V. Croatia, Winner Will Play France

"We know there is more to come from this @england team".

England will play in a World Cup semi-final for the first time since Italia 90, but Southgate insists his life outside of the game will not change if England progress to the final, or even win the tournament.

Actor Hugh Grant tweeted about the piece of clothing ahead of England's quarter-final victory over Sweden and the following day BBC presenter Andrew Marr opened his show in a waistcoat as a tribute to Southgate.

But England has not been in the final since 1966, when it won its only World Cup title.

Prime Minister Theresa May said: "Wasn't to be this time but it's been a great journey that's made the country proud".

The signing of a world class goalkeeper remains the primary target for Liverpool this summer, particularly following Loris Karius' high profile mistakes in the Champions League final at the end of May. Take this gathering in London's Hyde Park, where thousands came together to watch the game on large public outdoor screens.

"A kick in the Balkans": The Metro references Croatia as England's tormentors with a pun but insists Southgate's men are "still our heroes".

Youth development: Croatian players' children took to the field after their semi-final win.

He said: "I just feel so disappointed".

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren was written off before Croatia's World Cup semi-final with England. I was in France two years ago and we left under completely different circumstances.

However, Kane has not added to his tally since that Colombia match during the round of 16 and Neville is adamant England's star striker picked up an injury during the clash against the South Americans and has been playing hurt ever since. "You have got to be proud".

"Maybe [that was] a effect of being ahead and being the least experienced team in the tournament with the chance to get to a World Cup final", he added. "We worked so hard, the fans were fantastic, it was a tough game, a 50-50 game, when we look back we will think there's stuff we could have done better".
