England aim to join France in World Cup final

England aim to join France in World Cup final”

The England skipper has six goals to date in Russian Federation, putting him two clear in the Golden Boot race, and is on the verge of becoming just the third player to score on every day of the week for the Three Lions.

But when England face Croatia in Russian Federation on Wednesday, there may only be only a few thousand England supporters present.

The number of signatories to the petition, on the United Kingdom government and Parliament website, means it will be considered for debate in the House of Commons.

But Young, who turned 33 on Monday, says it would be futile to focus all their efforts on stopping Modric instead of focusing on the qualities that have brought England this far.

Mr Rogers cried tears of joy when England beat Colombia to make it to the quarterfinal and said he was unlikely to get any sleep before tomorrow's 2am game.

The victor Wednesday advances to Sunday's final against France.

It is the first time since 1998 that the nation of little over four million people have reached this stage of the competition, after they eliminated Russian Federation in a penalty shoot-out at the weekend.

He added: "We've scored a lot of goals from set plays and that is a fantastic feeling to have - that you're going up one end, your centre-backs and strikers going into the box and believing they will score".

"Croatia have world-class players like Modric, Rakitic and Mandzukic, players who are playing in the top clubs. And then with the ball, play with the freedom and expression that we have and the same patterns and movements that we have shown".

"They've got players all around the squad that are going to be hard opponents". Their last appearance ended in a 2-1 defeat by eventual winners France in 1998. "Why didn't you ask me how I played well against him?"

"'Football's coming home' is a song I couldn't even listen to for 20 years, frankly, so for me it has a slightly different feel, " Southgate said Tuesday on the eve of England's World Cup semifinal match against Croatia. "You are just nitpicking at my poor performances". The France '98 semi-finalists will be looking to one of the players of the tournament, Luka Modric, to guide them one step further in Russian Federation.

One matchup England will look to exploit involves Dejan Lovren, as he will have to go up against Harry Kane, who is now in line to win the Golden Boot at this summer's World Cup.
