England have potential for much more, says Southgate

England have potential for much more, says Southgate”

British Prime Minister Theresa May exchanged a team jersey with her Croatian counterpart ahead of Wednesday's night's England-Croatia semi final clash.

Southgate is convinced the future is bright whatever the outcome.

"The atmosphere for every game has been unbelievable, and as we've progressed through the tournament it's only got better".

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.

"They've seen we've got good lads who are incredibly proud to play, and are playing in a slightly different style to the one we've seen for a few years - playing with confidence on a big stage".

The Croats needed extra-time and penalties for the second successive knockout game, beating Russian Federation last time, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see them tire at some point in this game.

"Set pieces have been a massive thing for us and other teams through the whole of the World Cup", Ashley Young, one of England's set-piece takers, said Monday. Biggest win in the tournament.

Southgate became manager less than two years ago after the Football Association's first choice was forced out after unguarded comments to undercover reporters. Mr Southgate has worn his trademark waistcoat at each of England's World Cup matches and we have to say, he looks rather dashing in it. M&S report sales of his £65 waistcoat are up 35%.

"We want people to celebrate and enjoy themselves but not at the expense of law-abiding fans and emergency services' resources". "It's more about the collective - you can see it in the way he deals with the squad", said Paul Willis, who was in the stands last Saturday in Samara, Russia, when England reached the semifinals with a 2-0 victory over Sweden. "We are not. There is still a chance to exhaust ourselves".

"Our supporters and our country has had a long time suffering in terms of football. What a great way therefore to show our support by ensuring that some of our recognisable civic buildings and the famous Black Prince statue on City Square, are now displaying their England colours with great pride!"

"Our country's been through some hard moments in terms of unity and football has the power to do that".

"You can feel the encouragement and support".
