England nowhere near their potential: Southgate

England nowhere near their potential: Southgate

England boss Gareth Southgate found himself talking about rubber chickens and waistcoats as he finalised his plans for the World Cup semi-final showdown with Croatia.

Last week fans were spotted partying into the night after Three Lions beat Sweden, reaching the semi-finals.

So what are you waiting for? "I think Rashford coming on again is the obvious first one if we're struggling to break them down, then it would obviously depend on who is struggling, be it Sterling, Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard".

Southern Cross, a pub in Watford, is renaming itself to Southgate Cross. "So, they should - we've got trust in them doing that".

"I think there'll be a bit of nerves as the day comes but a bit of excitement as well because you know you've always dreamed of playing in a World Cup final".

After finishing second in their Group to fellow semi finalists Belgium, Gareth Southgate's side has incredibly found itself on the easier side of the draw, avoiding the likes of France, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, while Spain and Germany faced early elimination.

Pogba and France will advance to the World Cup Final on Sunday, where it'll take on the victor of Croatia vs. England - who face off on Wednesday - for a chance to bring home its second World Cup championship.

The most Philadelphia or any team besides the Cavs could give James is a four-year contract worth about $153 million. The most likely destinations are the LA Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers , and possibly, back to the Cleveland Cavaliers .

"The style of play has changed and so have attitudes. We are one step closer to what is the biggest game in football as a professional".

"So, we were at home and I went to get changed and I thought, "Hmmm, shall I wear those socks?'".

"At certain times we lacked power but we played two times 120 minutes of football in six days", he said this week. We still needed the win but I thought, "No, it's ridiculous".

"To see the fans, all the videos and how emotional it is to them, we want to do so well and make them celebrate even more".

Wednesday's game against Croatia in Moscow will be just the third time the Three Lions have played in such a fixture and the first since 1990.

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?'".
