Southgate proud of England support after 20 years of personal hurt

Pupils and staff from Minister Church of England Primary School in Ramsgate Kent show their support for Gareth Southgate and England in the World Cup semi-final

According to Croatian website Vercenji List, however, the player trained with the rest of the squad on Tuesday and could be ready to play against England this week. "I've been jokingly saying that football's coming home, but now there's no reason why we can't win it".

All Gareth Southgate's team have to do now is see off Croatia and then beat either France or Belgium in the final.

England have been rewriting history in Russian Federation, and Southgate is hoping there will be more to come as they play their most important World Cup game since losing to West Germany on penalties in the semi-finals of Italia '90.

Forget the cutbacks across the goal amidst a crowded penalty area or the clever runs behind the defence to create goalscoring opportunities, Sterling's tactical intelligence makes him the ideal candidate for the situations when England want to press high up the field - whether he puts the finishing touch himself or selflessly sets up a teammate, Sterling threatens to produce moments of magic every time he receives the ball and that is a quality to be heralded, not ridiculed.

"We have nice memories from France (when Croatia lost in the semis to hosts France in 1998)".

"I'm excited to see if Croatian fans are as excited as we are".

"They are proud to wear the shirt. We can feel the energy and the support from home and it's a very special feeling for us".

England's progress in Russian Federation has revived the Three Lions anthem - which includes the line "football's coming home".

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

England are Croatia's opponents in the final four of the tournament as they bid to reach their first final.
