Is football coming home?

Is football coming home?

Perhaps it was inevitable given where it is taking place that the World Cup in Russian Federation would turn political and so it proved after Croatia sacked assistant coach Ognjen Vukojevic just days before their semifinal with England.

It might even end with an England-France final.

The World Cup champions curse continued as Joachim Loew's men were dumped out in the group stage.

"No one wants to go home".

So get your kippers and slippers prepped, do your morning (or evening) calisthenics now, and for heaven sakes ring Mum, otherwise you just know she'll ring you during the match.

Young believes the fact England saw off Sweden inside 90 minutes might be enough to give them the edge in Moscow. "They have just displayed the qualities they have, that is all".

Winning the World Cup for the first time in 52 years has now transformed from fantasy into a distinct possibility, and Southgate thinks the rise of social media would only amplify the reaction if his England were to upset the odds and make it all the way. "We said we want to write our own history and hopefully we can go one step further and get to the final".

Renard Matthews Remembered by Family in Unique Way at Wake
New Orleans' WDSU-TV identified the man as Renard Matthews , saying he died June 25 after being shot in the head. While his family tries to deal with the bad tragedy, they have chosen to say goodbye in a unique, but loving way.

With former France World Cup victor Thierry Henry an assistant coach with Belgium‚ there has been plenty of personal feelings ahead of this game‚ which promises to be an electric contest given the wealth of attacking talent in both sides.

However, shortly after taking over the England team, Southgate made the players sit down and watch a replay of that horror show.

"It's amusing because at first I didn't think I did look like him, but with all the people approaching me about it they can't all be wrong!"

"This elderly couple really wanted me to film a message for their nephew from "Harry" saying "It's coming home", so I did that". Next month he is planning more fundraising activities as he marks two years since his death.

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

Jan Hatzius, chief economist at Goldman Sachs, said: "With Brazil now out of the world cup, Belgium is at the top of our probability table with a 32.6% chance of lifting the trophy, closely followed by France (29.8%)".

The result has been a rekindling of the relationship between England fans and their team that few could have foreseen after the Euro 2016 debacle.
