  • Gareth Southgate World Cup 2018

For the first since 1990 and third time in World Cup history, England have booked their place in the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup.

But Southgate is already proud of the work ethic and unity shown by his squad after overhauling the squad with young players during his 22 month reign. "To get through the two games this week we needed all of that".

Meanwhile right back Kieran Trippier, who came to Russian Federation with barely a handful of caps, has established himself as a key player in the team: not just for his pace in defense, but for his countless forward runs and his crossing. "We made it to a quarter-final, it's been 24 years since we were last at this stage".

Even England's players have got in on the act, with Manchester United attacker Jesse Lingard sharing the contents of his phone conversation with his mother. We are an emerging side, an evolving side: "a long way from ideal", said England coach Gareth Southgate.

Martin Dodgson, 32, of The Close, Kirkham, said: "I was expecting two-one or maybe one-nil bur we looked comfortable".

From the first match in the qualifiers against the Netherlands, the play-off against Italy and then come to this World Cup and do this.

He also confirmed that the alarm was nothing to worry about, saying: "Thankfully nothing happened to them on the day of the match, but I suppose the hotel couldn't take any chances if an alarm goes off".

Croatia, who last reached the semis in 1998, now face the challenge of trying to recover in time to play England in Moscow on Wednesday after their second consecutive penalty shootout drained their players of energy.

"I think France and Belgium have proven to be really good sides. It's going to be tough but let's say it's definitely coming home".

So we visited the Royal Pavilion Tavern in North Street, Brighton, a pub well known for hosting passionate football fans throughout the season, to see what staff are expecting for today's crunch match. Yes, they conceded a goal and lost it a bit for 10 minutes, but got it back and were in control. We've been playing well, we're learning and we're all enjoying it.

"It was my first worldwide goal on the biggest stage of them all", Maguire said.
