England injury-free ahead of World Cup semi-final

Harry Kane's Norfolk uncle proudly watches the England captain in action | Other Sport

The Manchester United midfielder was part of the France squad that lost 1-0 in extra time to Portugal in the Euro 2016 final, and Pogba hopes they can now go one better on Sunday.

Thursday will mark the 20th anniversary of France's only World Cup victory, when it defeated Brazil 3-0, and come Sunday it will try to do the same against the victor of England and Croatia on Wednesday.

In the quarter-finals, France and Brazil would have been my pick for the favourites of the remaining teams.

In retrospect, we should have seen England's victory coming.

So, what's next for the Wild Boar? The acting governor of Chiang Rai state, Narongsak Osottanakorn, led the rescue operation. For days, divers strategized as teams of volunteers worked to drain water out of the cave.


England have been based in Repino near St. Petersburg for the tournament, but their campaign has taken them to five different host cities.

France has made it to the semi-finals in half of their last six World Cup appearances. "They worked in '98 and we worked today, we reached out target to get to the final, I'm very satisfied".

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. Southgate deserves a lot of plaudits for the team's performances.

"They are a really young team and so nice. We are in a World Cup semi-final".

What to expect from Croatia and England’s World Cup semifinal
And a young, likeable side with an eminently sensible and humble manager in Southgate have captured the hearts of a nation. The captain was the man of the match again in the penalty shootout win over Russian Federation in Sochi at the weekend.


The force said it will increase its presence in the city for England's match against Croatia on Wednesday.

"I had to stick at it but I never gave up and stopped believing in myself". "Maybe in the World Cup or Euros (before) some players didn't have the feeling of winning at all".

The team, led by Coach Stanislav Cherchesov, scored the third largest number of goals of all competing countries, while other teams scored seven goals against Russian Federation. It was a match at the highest level played with undeniable quality.

"We don't have renowned, world-class players yet but we've got lots of good young players who are showing on the young stage that they can be fearless on the ball, try and play the right way, have shown some mental resilience".
