"That's why I think they can go all the way".

England will face Croatia on Wednesday in their first World Cup semi-final match since 1990.

Millions are expected to flood into England's pubs tonight in the hope of finding the most electric atmosphere to watch the game.

'The hunger of players has been there for everyone to see, we are proud of the style they have played. Our physical performance coach has tried to keep refreshing the warm-ups for the players and keep them stimulated.

England is making waves at the World Cup in Russian Federation, and they're being followed by a bittersweet tune. They belong in the final four of this World Cup, succeeding where many other more illustrious, more experienced sides have failed in Russian Federation this summer. We know what's at stake and in such moments you forget any fatigue you may feel because this is maybe a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Our country has been through some hard moments recently in terms of unity but sport has the power to unite - and football in particular has the power to do that.

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

Southgate was a key player for England at Euro 96 but saw his penalty saved in the shoot-out at the end of the semi-final against Germany which saw them knocked out.

"Thanks to you lovely people, Shotgun has been number one for two weeks running", Ezra said in a video posted to Twitter.

Asked what is was all about, a slightly bemused Southgate said: "That's exactly what I asked our fitness coach a well, 'What is that all about?'".

England will play Croatia at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium at 7pm United Kingdom time. "We've got to this point because the collective has been so strong", Southgate said after the quarterfinal win over Sweden on Saturday. "It's up to us now which games we play in".

This is only the second time the model has changed its forecast all tournament and did so after its pre-competition favourites Brazil crashed out 2-1 against Belgium in the quarter-finals.
