It is coming home? Odds on England World Cup win shorten after Sweden win

Kane is now leading the Golden Boot race at this summer's World Cup with six goals, helping his side to the semi-finals of the competition in the process.

However the rest of the tournament plays out, Southgate's contribution will be lauded for decades to come and he's come a long way since being described as a safe option after the nightmare which was Allardyce's tenure.

"This is a World Cup where the unexpected has happened".

Such was the impact of that loss and the criticism it provoked, it must have been tempting for Southgate to tell his players to put that experience out of their minds.

Jan Hatzius, chief economist at Goldman Sachs, said: "With Brazil now out of the world cup, Belgium is at the top of our probability table with a 32.6% chance of lifting the trophy, closely followed by France (29.8%).

We just want to keep on improving, stick together as a team and give more moments like that, they are special moments".

The Three Lions face Croatia in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Wednesday (19:00 BST) in their first World Cup semi-final for 28 years.

Southgate tomorrow takes his team into the biggest game the country has seen since the 1990 semi-final.

"Everyone has been able to see this since the beginning of the World Cup , and now we expect to be here until the last day". It gives me the shivers when I think about it. "I believe that they will be perfectly able to go all the way".

"They were sending them to their mums, dads and grandparents who wouldn't believe them when they said how similar I looked!"

Trippier embraces Southgate after England beat Sweden on Saturday. "Croatia deserve respect, they've got some wonderful players".

"I don't know what to say in response", he said at a news conference.

"I think everyone can see that they are proud to wear the shirt".

"It was a brilliant tournament, fantastic memories of the whole tournament, I remember videoing every game to watch back".

"We've got to believe, definitely", he added.

"The more of these tests we can come through, the better, not just for now, but moving forward". Hendo (Jordan Henderson) was another one who was feeling tightness in his hamstring, which was why we made the change.

The situation is a far cry away from the bitter disappointments of Euro 2016 and crashing out at the hands of Iceland, and England as a country appear to have been united by football fever.
