Matt Le Tissier's plan for England to reach the World Cup final

Harry Maguire’s goal slips past the Swedish goalkeeper to give England a 1-0 lead half an hour into the match

With a team featuring Davor Suker, Zvonimir Boban and Robert Prosinecki wearing blues shirts with a distinctive red and white chequerboard pattern, they beat World Cup giants Germany 3-0 in the quarter-finals in France, sparking delirium at home.

"It's coming home" makes up the chorus of the 1996 song "Three Lions", by The Lightning Seeds. They were also champions that year.

He said he is "confident" England is going to win the World Cup and that he was inspired to have the tattoo during the game against Panama.

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.

In doing so, France handed Belgium their first loss of the tournament, and denied the Belgians their first ever trip to the World Cup final.

England manager Gareth Southgate believes his team are "nowhere near" the level they will be capable of reaching in the future, he said on Tuesday ahead of the World Cup semi-final against Croatia.

Croatia's best previous World Cup run dates back 20 years to 1998, when they lost in the final four to eventual winners France.

"I went to Rakitic for advice and he told me just to pick a side and not change it", Vida told Croatian media after the match. It cruised through the group stage, then almost got eliminated by Japan.

France withstood nine shots from Belgium as Hugo Lloris kept a clean sheet, and Deschamps credited his side's effort at the back. England to win and Under 2.5 goals is a 3/1 chance and might be the way to bet. "We know they're top, top players but we have top players too", he said. We have two matches to play and we are very motivated.

Belgium were absolutely brilliant against Brazil last time out, with coach Roberto Martinez emerging from that 2-1 victory with a lot of credit after switching tactics and allowing Kevin De Bruyne more freedom in the final third.

"He [Kane] is top scorer - he's not easy to stop". England has not been as far as the semi-finals since they last hosted the tournament in 1966.
