England aim to join France in World Cup final

11 July 2018

England have not been in the semi-finals of the World Cup since 1990 when they lost on penalties to then West Germany.

Jenas doesn't just believe Modric is among the best - he thinks the Real Madrid man is the top midfielder in the world and is only denied accolades because he doesn't rack up goals like some other stars do.

When the song first was released, the chorus proclaimed "Three lions on a shirt/Jules Rimet still gleaming/Thirty years of hurt/never stopped me dreaming".

England hasn't played in the semifinals of a major tournament since Southgate's penalty kick at Wembley was saved by Andreas Koepke 22 years ago, and Andrea Moeller put the next kick over David Seaman and under the crossbar.

"We've been having a really good time so far".

Modric and his team-mates could better their nation's best-ever World Cup performance, in 1998, when Croatia finished third after losing to France in the semi-final.

The victor Wednesday advances to Sunday's final against France or Belgium.

Erdogan to take oath as Turkey’s1st Executive President with vast powers
There are 16 ministers in Erdogan's streamlined new cabinet, which Erdogan has said will be more efficient and act faster. Erdogan pledged to build a "strong Turkey " with a powerful defence industry and expanding economy.

He said: "I didn't feel nervous or anything like that".

Fears of violence and racism ahead of the World Cup, bolstered by memories of clashes between England and Russian Federation fans Marseille during the European Championship in France in 2016, may have put supporters off travel to Russian Federation for the tournament. The cost of that appears to be an injury for Sime Vrsaljko, after he was forced off against the latter and is a big doubt for the upcoming game. England are favourites at $2.4 compared to Croatia's 3.65.

"For us as a team, it's another chance to create a small piece of history".

England have also conceded four goals.

"But England is a happy team, is a team you look at them and you see happiness, is a team that they went from even candidate to candidate and I just hope that they are themselves and not like Belgium that the majority of the players were not themselves. You don't want to watch it back but we know how important it was, going into the World Cup, that we had to go back through it to come out stronger". "The age of the players, the improvement in the players, the hunger in the players has been apparent for everybody to see".

"We had expected more fans around and a few more bars open, but it's a bit quiet still", he added, speaking on the morning of the game.
