Croatia coach's hard path to World Cup final

They have exceeded all expectations, coming agonisingly close to reaching a World Cup final for the first time since 1966.

It relates to the chanting of "no surrender" by England fans and other potentially discriminatory songs.

Southgate has not yet indicated whether he will rotate his team for the game, but back-up goalkeeper Jack Butland said he would love to make his first World Cup appearance in St. Petersburg.

Nonetheless, he was touched by the reaction of England's supporters who stayed behind to applaud the players off the pitch in the Luzhniki Stadium, in contrast to being booed and whistled after losing to Iceland. I think we all deserve this.

Saint Petersburg, Jul 13 England manager Gareth Southgate hopes his team can ride the momentum generated by their run to the World Cup semi-finals and follow the path Germany took to the top of global football.

"What the players are going to experience is close to what we experienced in 1996 and in '66".

"There's an energy and a connection back".

We'll have to see how the teams look when starting lineups post, but for a second time this cup, Belgium is the favorite against England and should continue to be, unless Belgium rests its stars and England players its big boys.




"They've got to know the players a little bit better and realised the perception is different from the reality".

"But if we had a parade that would have been one part of the country and we represent the whole country as well". Still, with England fielding the second-youngest squad all around at the World Cup this year, there's plenty for Southgate to take pride in.

"Once Argentina were out, we just wanted to stay here till the end and watch as many games we could". "I'm not looking for eight more years, by the way".

Even so, he said he would try to lift his team. You can't put it into words.

"We did say before the game that these lads will have to take the opportunity now as it may never happen again".

The semi-finals of the World Cup were intense.
