Jamie Vardy sends Gareth Southgate update ahead of World Cup semi-final

Revisiting his predictions ahead of the upcoming England vs. Croatia semi-final in Moscow, Neville allowed himself a pat on his own back before he urged England supporters to get behind Gareth Southgate's team.

Belgium, loaded with talent, but still looking for their first title on the biggest stage in football, will be no push-overs.

Southgate's England side will play Croatia in the semi-finals on Wednesday evening, where England captain Harry Kane will be hoping to get on the score sheet as he pursues the coveted Golden Boot award.

Leading SA bookmakers BET.co.za have installed France as 2/1 for the overall title, followed by England (5/2), Belgium (13/5) and Croatia (4/1). He is due to fly to Russian Federation on a private jet today to cheer on Gareth Southgate's team against Croatia tomorrow.

Celebrations of England's World Cup quarterfinal victory over Sweden spilled out of control on Saturday, as reports of criminal damage to an ambulance and a record number of distress calls emerged.

England's team appear fully fit and all 23 players trained on Monday morning.

Back in England, the national team - vilified after the debacle at Euro 2016 - is once more a source of pride.

He was able to emerge unaided. "If our two drivers make a mistake twice and take the same team out, I would be apologizing". Toto Wolff reveals Mercedes will go "full attack" this afternoon at Silverstone . "I know I'm not ideal ", he wrote.

"I think it's good the players understand it's a big moment for the country".

A few days later, as England beat Sweden to make the semis, some rudimentary Photoshop skills in our Roundel Ramblings group, echoed the same sweet sentiment.

'We do not want to stop, we will try to play our best game.

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. They will not be an easy job for England, far from it, though it remains to be seen whether they could all look a bit exhausted after playing 240 minutes of football instead of 180 in those knockout rounds.

The Three Lions squad and management team arrived at their training base in Repino just after midnight local time and spent the day recuperating as World Cup fever gripped the nation.

Their opponents have had two energy-sapping 120-minute games, after needing penalties to overcome Denmark in the last-16 and then Russian Federation in their quarter-final in Sochi on Saturday night.

"It's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament, and we've got a tough game coming up against Croatia, but we feel confident". At 22, Alli became the second-youngest scorer for England at a World Cup behind Michael Owen. I think we can do it.
