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

England manager Gareth Southgate during the press conference at the Luzhniki Stadium Moscow

If England advance to the final they will face France on Sunday at 5pm.

Three Lions has exploded again during this World Cup, propelled by hundreds of memes spreading virally on social media, all making up part of England's unexpected but exhilarating journey towards tonight's World Cup semi-final against Croatia, the national team's first since Italia 90. England has been craving a top title since it won the World Cup in 1966 and has a tremendous, unforseen opportunity ahead, with the weight of its country on its shoulders.

"Every city we've played in, and our base in particular, but everywhere we've played, we've had a really warm welcome, the organization of the tournament has been absolutely first-class".

And fans said they believed the key to success was the youthful team's work ethic and pride.

We're not sure what to make of it!

"We keep looking to break the barriers down. We want to continue doing everybody proud". They have real enthusiasm for these players, not only for the way they have played but also for the way they have conducted themselves.

The infectious song, with its chorus "It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming, football's coming home", was written by pop star Ian Broadie and comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner ahead of England's hosting of Euro 96.

"This team is nowhere near the level they will be capable of, partly because of age and partly because over the years they'll have more big-match experience".

The surge of support for Southgate is a remarkable turnaround from the mid-1990s when he was ridiculed for missing a decisive penalty in England's semi-final shootout defeat to Germany at the 1996 European Championships.

"Football's coming home, I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly", Southgate said.
