England fans make late dash to Russian Federation for World Cup semi-final

Grant SmithJul 11, 2018

The Three Lions manager and his dapper look have also seen the sales of waistcoats soar up and down the country as men are eager to replicate his look.

The French will remember well what happened when the teams last met, with Belgium tearing them apart in a 4-3 friendly win in Paris in June 2015.

Here are my predictions for how the rest of the World Cup will play out.

"This generation has been underrated for a long time because of their poor results, but they have shown their quality when it mattered at this World Cup, and it will go down as a golden generation like that of 1998".

Teddy Allen of Staffordshire had a large picture of Kane and "World Cup Winners 2018" tattooed on his left thigh after England beat Sweden.

Saturday's 2-0 victory over Sweden took manager Gareth Southgate's team into a World Cup semi-final for the first time in 28 years, raising the prospect of England possibly winning the tournament for the first time since 1966.

This will subsequently leave Belgium to defeat England in the final meaning football will not be "coming home" this summer, (according to the model)!

Both France and Belgium won their respective groups.

France will face Belgium in the first semi-final clash at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on Tuesday after the two sides beat the South American contingents from Uruguay and Brazil respectively. For while Croatia looked excellent in the group stages they've needed penalties to get past Denmark and then hosts Russian Federation in the knockout rounds.

That means players from all four teams will still have to watch their step in the last four contests.

Yet it is England's creative, dynamic and intelligent midfield that will need to be on the top of its game against Croatia.

One half of the World Cup Finals is set, as France defeated Belgium today in the semifinals by the final of 1-0.

"I have played in about 60 matches this season, but I can say that there is nothing better playing at the world championship", Rakitic said after the match.

Which stocks will perform well if England make the knockout stages?

And with four goals each, Denis Cheryshev tied as the third-top scorer with Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku.
