England's route to the semi-finals at the 2018 World Cup

England's route to the semi-finals at the 2018 World Cup”

England will play France if they reach the final and World Cup-winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks was in confident mood about the team's chances of victory. Each of those winners will play in the World Cup Final on Sunday.

In addition to touching on England's preparations for the nation's biggest game in almost three decades, Southgate took the time to praise World Cup hosts Russian Federation.

Of the four countries left, all are European, with England, Belgium and Croatia represented by right-wing governments, and France by a centrist one. Adnan Januzaj's brilliant solo goal won the match for Belgium. Les Bleus also reached the final in 2006 but they were beaten 5-3 on penalties by Italy. That evenness is why France is the team to beat in the mind of Jeffrey Marcus, publisher of the World Cup newsletter "The Banter".

Thierry Henry is now working as Martinez's assistant coach with his loyalties tested when France and Belgium meet in Saint Petersburg, however the former Wolfsburg midfielder believes his influence on the group has helped.

Their Semi Final opponents and neighbours France have Emmanuel Macron as president - a former Socialist Party minister who launched his own party, which he describes politically as "neither left nor right".

Brazil vs Belgium was another surprise of this World Cup. He went on to score 41 goals in 72 internationals.

Thousands of supporters in Russian Federation and millions at home will watch nervously as the team face Croatia for the right to play in Sunday's final - and potentially end 52 years without a major trophy.

"We can not follow the path of another Belgian generation that has won the World Cup".

"They are an exhaustive team, they know how to do everything".

Southgate also said he had not bought into much of the scaremongering about Russian Federation peddled by sections of the United Kingdom press ahead of the tournament. I've engraved the Queen's head on a blob of gold and The Last Supper but I'm really proud of my portrait of Harry Kane.
