England nowhere near their potential: Southgate

England nowhere near their potential: Southgate England nowhere near their potential: Southgate

The England manager is on the verge of leading his Three Lions to the World Cup final and a shot at immortality.

"The tournament has been unbelievable", he said.

First win on penalties in the World Cup.

The song, recorded by David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and the Lightning Seeds, has been echoing around the nation once again ever since it became apparent that Southgate and his team were going to have an extended stay in Russian Federation.

They were just 44 minutes away from reaching the final when Suker scored first early in the second half but a Lilian Thuram double won it for eventual champions France.

"I still look back on it as an incredible life experience and to be involved with it, I just needed a bit of time to get over it", Southgate said.

England fans are being urged to dig out their old waistcoats for the World Cup semi-final on "Waistcoat Wednesday" in honour of newly-appointed national treasure Gareth Southgate.

"It's amusing because at first I didn't think I did look like him, but with all the people approaching me about it they can't all be wrong!"

"I think tonight (Wednesday) will be the biggest test for them".

Best of luck and let us know how you do.

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler understands why so many in the current England squad are huge fans of manager Gareth Southgate.

Southgate is more interested in kicking on than wondering if they would get the kind of rapturous reception that greeted Sir Bobby Robson's men 28 years ago, although that summer left a lasting impact on him.

"It was a brilliant tournament, fantastic memories of the whole tournament, I remember videoing every game to watch back".

"100 percent I think you can see that in the way that we play, everybody the whole 23, willing to put everything aside, whatever their personal interests might be, purely for the team to be successful", he said. Football is coming home!'

"But equally, we're always looking at how we can hurt them, what are the areas we can exploit in the way they play?"

"We shouldn't be surprised Croatia is in the last four", added Dalic, whose side are 20th in the world rankings - eight places below England.
