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.

In 2006, they were beaten in a penalty shootout by Italy in a World Cup final that was overshadowed by Zidane headbutting opposing player Marco Materazzi in the chest in extra time. The real party started when the final whistle blew. "That's what we want to see from him".

"Bob was immensely proud to reach the semi-finals at Italia 90 and bitterly disappointed not to go further".

France and Belgium play on the other side of the draw first, with their game scheduled to take place on Tuesday (7pm).

Maguire is now an England hero, after his performance in Russian Federation, where he has been one of Gareth Southgate's star players.

Fred has expressed his disappointment on social media after tournament favourites Brazil crashed out of the World Cup at the quarter-final stage. I am sure that they will show this same attitude against Croatia.

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

Lady Elsie, who has been greatly enjoying watching the World Cup herself, is well known for fronting the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, a charity dedicated to finding more effective ways to detect and treat cancer.

Belgium paid the price for failing to take their chances against France but will now have to shake off their disappointment and focus on finishing third at the World Cup, coach Roberto Martinez said after his team's defeat in the semifinal.

"The results were below the level and quality of our players". Of the tournament's star players, Romelu Lukaku has performed as strongly as we expected him to.

The past really means little for majority.

A Sheffield United supporter by the name of Matt Benton pledged on Twitter to have the former Blades local hero Maguire inked on his torso if Maguire found the net against the Swedes.

"We've seen the videos from back home and it seems like the country is really coming together so we're happy to have that influence".
