Many fans are preparing for "Waistcoat Wednesday", which will see fans dress up in the England manager's waistcoat to watch the national team take on Croatia in the world cup semi-final. "And if it's France I think they'll win it". "Of course, we'll do our best to be fit for the semi-final".

Didier Deschamps has one of the strongest squads in the tournament, and it's hard to find a weakness in his team.

Croatia emerged through extra-time and spot-kicks against Denmark in the last 16 before going through the same ordeal again against Russian Federation in the quarter-finals. "Obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament", Kane said after the 2-0 quarter-final win over Sweden.

"I said at the start of this that over this summer, this is our family".

"In honour of our England getting to the semi-final, we've chose to decorate one of our buses to show our support".

Having played his club football in Belgium for almost four years (1985-1989), Bwalya can not help but marvel at the transformation of the country's football.

"1998 will never be forgotten and should not be, but I would love it if eventually the 1998 "Fiery Ones" can be moved aside so that we can talk not only about 1998 but also a bit about 2018", the former Real Madrid player said.

"We don't really have much time to rest, after two 120 minutes battles, we are physically and emotionally exhausted", Vrsaljko told HNTV.

Following England's incredible win against Sweden, the track by The Lightening Seeds & Baddiel and Skinner - which includes the iconic chant "It's coming home" - has smashed its way to number one.
