No absentees for England training ahead of World Cup semi-final

In addition to touching on England's preparations for the nation's biggest game in almost three decades, Southgate took the time to praise World Cup hosts Russian Federation.

"I don't know what you're saying in the dressing room to the players, but whatever you're saying, it's working".

"If you are determined to go out and engage in this behaviour, we will detain you and bring you into custody".

In a World Cup filled with exciting comebacks and a record-breaking number of matches decided by penalty kicks, all it took for France to best a high-scoring Belgian team was a single goal.

Martinez, previously manager of English clubs Swansea City, Wigan Athletic and Everton, took over after a disappointing European Championship in 2016 when Belgium were beaten 3-1 by Wales in the quarter-finals.

Brazil vs Belgium was another surprise of this World Cup.

Didier Deschamps, who as a player was part of that Black-Blanc-Beur side, will now seek to emulate one of his predecessors, Raymond Domenech, and complete his mission against the victor of another fairly important football match later today - that between Croatia and England.

"It's nice to hear people enjoying it again, anyway".

Kane told journalist: "It's unbelievable to meet any heroes from '66 and it gives you so much inspiration, obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament. We want to finish this tournament in the best possible way".

"If you look at all of our attacking patterns and the way that our front four have combined and played, he's been instrumental in that, so I think he's a player that's really appreciated by the team. The most important awaits us on Sunday", Deschamps said.

"He is someone we are aware of and we have to be ready to control him".

We put tasty treats on each of the country's flags and after some unwanted interference from a feline friend, Tilly made her choice (which you can see in the video below).
