Sterling did produce an encouraging display in the quarter-final win over Sweden and was a constant threat throughout the 2-0 success in Samara.

ReutersEngland's Harry Kane will face off against Belgium's Romelu Lukaku in the World Cup final, according to Goldman Sachs.

He is due to fly to Russian Federation on a private jet today to cheer on Gareth Southgate's team against Croatia tomorrow.

England secured their first semi-final place in the tournament for 28 years after seeing off Sweden 2-0 on Saturday, with only Croatia standing in their way of reaching the final following their dramatic penalty shootout victory against hosts Russian Federation.

Southgate has used the stories of that triumph as inspiration, and believes the current team can become even bigger heroes.

"We've talked about the team which won". "How they're still held and revered".

"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".

Credit Deschamps for organizing his team well and fostering a positive spirit in the camp, but France will play Belgium on Tuesday in a semifinal clash of titans, and we fear Les Blues' youth and inexperience might cost them dearly. The two teams most recently met in a qualifying match for the 2010 World Cup, which saw England crush Croatia, 5-1.

These guys are a couple of games away from being immortalised, I bet they can't wait for the next game to start.

"We have one more step to go in Croatia and we'll treat it as "one game at a time". But they like a lot of their.

"He said something but I don't know him personally. I'm not going to focus on that, but it would be nice!"

Les Bleus boast stars at goalkeeper, in defense, midfield and attack, and their is the envy of most other global sides.

"It's a proud moment for us all when we put on the jersey and I'm going to grab it with both hands, run with it and enjoy it as much as we can". Can we beat Sweden? Yes. Well it's not QUITE Southgate - but Southgate is REASONABLY equidistant between the two places that helped mould the England manager we now all love to sing reworked Atomic Kitten songs about.
