National tensions simmer ahead of Belgium-France World Cup semi-final

"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". Belgium is now the third favourites to lift the World Cup come the 15th of July.

Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier is one of several England players to see his stock rise this summer due to their performances in the World Cup. They've scored two goals in every game [except against Denmark in the round of 16].

Kane is now leading the Golden Boot race at this summer's World Cup with six goals, helping his side to the semi-finals of the competition in the process.

She added: "As we all know, it's rare for England to get this far in the World Cup so make the most of it now - let's come together as a community to cheer Gareth Southgate's team on to a place in the final".

Erdogan sworn in with new powers, names son-in-law as finance minister

After 60 World Cup matches, only four countries remain in the hunt for soccer's most prized trophy.

Tens of thousands of Russians gathered in Moscow on Sunday to cheer the national team, after its defeat to Croatia in a penalty shoot-out brought an unlikely World Cup run to an emotional end.

Just four teams remain, all of them from Europe: Belgium, France, Croatia, and England. In 2002, 2006 and 2014 they were eliminated in the group stages, and they failed to qualify for the 2010 tournament. "There is a big rivalry between France and Belgium, it's like a derby match".

Yet it is England's creative, dynamic and intelligent midfield that will need to be on the top of its game against Croatia. England to win and Under 2.5 goals is a 3/1 chance and might be the way to bet. They are in the better half of the draw and we have a proper team, full of quality, full of experience.
