England star marvels at journey from MK Dons to Moscow

Gary Lineker heads the ball against West Germany in the 1990 World Cup semi-final

The players today are going to be even stronger in two years' time and in four years' time, but today they are already competitive.

While Asterix is a Frenchman, Tintin - the daring journalist - has Belgium as his home. Biggest win in the tournament.

Tintin and Asterix have always been rivals in the world of the comic strips for both are popular for their entertainment and art.

And national superstores have thrown their support behind the England Football Team by pledging to close all of its stores in England early, if the team reach the World Cup finals.

England takes on Croatia on Wednesday in the second World Cup semifinal, with the victor advancing to Sunday's big game against France.

Gareth Southgate believes his heroes have the power to unite England by securing a place in the World Cup final.

Deschamps said Belgium were hard rivals and had "made us suffer, but its good we were pragmatic and realistic".

England did not have an overly hard route to the semi-final but they have overcome every obstacle they faced with some solid performances.

France might be the favorite to win the World Cup at this point.

Reading Buses has joined the party by decorating one of its buses with a huge St George's Cross and the hashtag #Itscominghome ahead of the Croatia game.

Alli, who missed England's final two group games due to a thigh injury, dismissed the notion that nerves may have got to him in the quarterfinal. All the celebrations inspire us as players to bring the nation together and put smiles on people's faces.

Brazil vs Belgium was another surprise of this World Cup.

But Southgate revealed he could not listen to it for many years.

"They attack very fast". You may also be aware that perennial under-achievers England have somehow managed to secure a spot in the semi-finals - for the first time since 1990, when England lost to West Germany.

Martinez said his team had done well to nullify the French threat from open play and denied that his decision to start Mousa Dembele in midfield had a major effect on the outcome.
