Gareth Southgate’s waistcoat set for a place in history

Gareth Southgate England manager World Cup 2018

Gareth Southgate leads England into a semi-final for the first time since 1990, knowing Croatia are likely to provide a much sterner test than quarter-final opponents Sweden.

A 2-0 win over Sweden on Saturday saw Gareth Southgate's side progress to the final four and kept celebrations flowing across England.

So what are you waiting for?

England's World Cup-winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks last night compared the current squad to the victorious 1966 team.

"I've seen lots of ex-players and had lots of messages from ex-players as well who have the same view, so we're really pleased with his contribution, and his work-rate as well without the ball has been incredible for us".

Alli will surely start again for Gareth Southgate's side, and he will be part of a midfield attempting to stop Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic and Real Madrid's Luka Modric from running riot.

The 12 boys on the "Wild Boars" team and their coach were trapped in a cave for more than two weeks, and were all successfully rescued on Tuesday.

"Our country has been through some hard moments recently in terms of its unity and I think sport has the power to do that and football in particular has the power to do that".

After finishing second to Argentina in Group H following victories over Jamaica and Japan, World Cup debutants Croatia claimed some impressive scalps on their way to the semi-finals. When I went to get changed at the hotel, I'd forgotten my socks. Anyway, we won and the staff made this big thing about my lucky socks, saying I had to wear them next game.

"At the beginning we were working together with the lads and trying to sell them the vision of what's possible, what we're looking to achieve in the long term". We still needed the win but I thought, "No, it's ridiculous".

"The welcome of the Russian people has been top", Southgate said.

"You don't want to watch it back, but we knew how important it was, going into the World Cup, that we had to go back through it to come out stronger".

Considering the fact that he can immortalise himself in the next six days, depending on results, we want you to cast your mind back to the first time that Southgate took charge of an England match.
