After England gave up a tying goal to Brazil in first-half stoppage time in the 2002 Soccer World Cup quarter-finals, Southgate felt coach Sven-Goran Eriksson lacked inspirational oratory in the locker room at half-time.

The civic buildings of Leeds Town Hall and Leeds Civic Hall will also be lit up red and white on both Tuesday and Wednesday night in order to cheer on England, alongside proudly flying a St George's flag.

"We are in a World Cup semi-final".

He added that the team was "really proud with the style we played, with the intelligence that we have performed under pressure". Meticulous preparation - including a trip to the United States to take in an National Basketball Association game - the selection of specific players with strong dead-ball delivery, and the defensive nature of high-pressure tournament football has led to a point where set pieces could yet lead England to a second World Cup title.

"We've won after scoring in the last minute, won after conceding in the last minute, come through extra time and penalties". Mr Southgate has worn his trademark waistcoat at each of England's World Cup matches and we have to say, he looks rather dashing in it. M&S report sales of his £65 waistcoat are up 35%.

The last time I saw "intelligent" precision football being played by the England team was a long time ago, under the management of Terry Venables.

Belgian premier Charles Michel teased President Emmanuel Macron that France's win against Belgium in the World Cup semi-final had been "very lucky". "His team-mates play at top clubs, it's going to be a hard task but if we're ready to give our all on the pitch like against Argentina, if we're compact, I don't believe there will be problems". "We will see after this practice session", he said.

"We keep looking to break the barriers down".

Speaking to Sky News, the ex-footballer said: "Football's coming home, I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly".

Infogol's Analyst thinks England will score again from a set-piece against Croatia, but who are they backing to score in Wednesday's semi-final.?
