  • England boss Gareth Southgate keeping select guest-list for Croatia clash

So what are you waiting for?

Councillor Judith Blake, Leader of Leeds City Council, said: "England's performances under the astute management and leadership of Gareth Southgate in this World Cup have been absolutely sensational and instilled enormous excitement and pride in people of all ages across the country and of course here in Leeds".

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.

Croatia was missing three key players at training on Monday ahead of Wednesday's World Cup semi-final showdown with England.

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. The victor advances to Sunday's final against France or Belgium, which also will be at Luzkniki Stadium.

"I am sure Londoners of all ages and backgrounds will come together in their thousands at Hyde Park to cheer England on what could be an historic night".

In fact, the feel-good story could continue for some of England's players after the tournament has concluded, as the world has stood up and watched this young Three Lions team grow into potential world beaters.

The England women's side are now in the qualifying stages for the 2019 Women's World Cup in France.

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

"We've had the chance to make a difference".

In case, England goes on to win the match, Croatian stores in the United Kingdom, if there are any, may need to be wary of overenthusiastic fans. "His team-mates play at top clubs, it's going to be a hard task but if we're ready to give our all on the pitch like against Argentina, if we're compact, I don't believe there will be problems". "As every game's gone on they have got better and better".
