England fans celebrate World Cup win over Sweden at IKEA

Kyle Walker’s tweet about Harry Maguire goes viral after debut England goal

Kyle Walker’s tweet about Harry Maguire goes viral after debut England goal

England are on the verge of reaching their first World Cup final since 1966 and Three Lions fans are dreaming of their team lifting the famous trophy come Sunday.

The Euro '96 anthem managed to topple Drake from the top spot, clocking up over one million streams in just one day.

Gareth Southgate believes his England team winning the World Cup might be greeted with even greater fanfare than Sir Alf Ramsey's heroes enjoyed when they lifted the trophy in 1966.

England manager Gareth Southgate and a player will later attend the pre-match press conference ahead of the World Cup semi-final at Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow from 1530BST.

"So you've got to have a racehorse trainer's eye at times to sort that out".

"(But) where we are today, I would say, categorically, quite clearly, we can win it, without a shadow of doubt.

"We've played well, we've played well in the games".

"We have kept things the same throughout the whole tournament, keep going in the same way and we will do also leading up to Wednesday", he said.


"Probably one big difference is that we had four genuine world-class players in Gordon Banks, Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton and Jimmy Greaves (who did not play in the final)".

As the hysteria back home following Saturday's quarter-final win proves, so are the rest of us - and long may it continue, well, for at least another week.

As if there wasn't already enough riding on tomorrow's World Cup quarter-final, David Beckham and Zlatan Ibrahimovic just upped the stakes even more.

"But for us, it's all about the experience".

"I don't know what you're saying in the dressing room to the players, but whatever you're saying, it's working".

The Manchester City man hailed England's campaign in Russian Federation as "a pleasure".

Before we went there, we were off to the army base at Catterick for a boot camp - something Palace did before the start of every season.
