England's quarter-final win sparks wild scenes on streets

Andrew Marr has joined other stars in wearing waistcoats in support of England manager Gareth Southgate, following the football team's win over Sweden.

The 2018 World Cup is now just a few days from the semi-finals.

The organisation said: "In honour of the England boss' new-found football fashionista status, we're inviting supporters to grab a waistcoat (or print one - in England colours of course!) and button up to beat blood cancer".

Against Sweden, some of the clipped passes Pickford made to his wingbacks, Kieran Trippier and Ashley Young, were as good as any of England's ball-playing midfielders could produce.

"Gareth Southgate has re-energised English football, as anyone who's been to a Walkabout to watch a match will tell you!"

"Croatia have got a great midfield and a great striker, but we've got great players all over the pitch, so for me it's going to be England in the final and then I think it will be Belgium".

Alli and Gareth Southgate's Three Lions take on Sweden in their World Cup quarter final final on Saturday afternoon and former England under-21 global Baker says Alli's progression has come as no shock whatsoever.

Harry Kane looked tired at the end of Saturday's game, and Jordan Henderson was taken off as a precaution.

The victor of the tie will go on to face France or Belgium at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Sunday afternoon.

That peak audience was slightly below the 24m who saw England win a penalty shoot-out against Colombia on Tuesday on ITV. Jakob Johansson will return from the knee injury he sustained after scoring the playoff goal against Italy that got Sweden to the World Cup, and Albin Ekdal showed in Russian Federation that he is well capable of anchoring the midfield with him.

"They've been through a lot", Southgate added.

England have exceeded expectations by making it to the last four of the World Cup for the first time since 1990.

"We've already got extra staff in place to help us keep you all safe and having fun".

"My guys feel like conscript soldiers whose term of service was over just when they were preparing to go into battle".

If given the go-ahead, the fan zone would be held at Lincoln Castle from 5pm on Wednesday, July 11, when England face Croatia. At 22, Alli became the second-youngest scorer for England at a World Cup behind Michael Owen.
