Kane: We want to finish the job

Harry Kane lookalike Danny McLaughlin is star attraction

There is an abundance of attacking talent on show - insane pace in Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku; guile in Kevin de Bruyne and Antoine Griezmann.

"We feel proud - proud to have made the fans proud", said the striker, who remains two goals clear of Belgium's Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot. That included our attitude as well.

England manager Gareth Southgate on a potential World Cup win: "We've talked, touched briefly, certainly, on the team which won".

It was a attractive moment because it seemed everyone suddenly saw themselves as part of our team.

One complicating factor for ABEs is that Southgate and his young team are genuinely likeable, having shed the baggage that has weighed down so many England teams in past tournaments.

Croatia stand between England and the World Cup final.

"I think he is playing out of his skin - he is doing so well".

What will be important is the energy your players can bring, and their belief they can get to the final.

"Listen, it doesn't matter where you're from". They've lined up in freakish formations to confuse their markers - like against Colombia in the round of 16 where four players stood in a row before splintering off. I want to see you go for it, and seize this opportunity.

'If we get to the final, or if we don't get to the final, then we're one day short, it has been an absolute pleasure of an experience to share not just with the players but also the staff'.

A World Cup champion will be crowned on Sunday.

It did exactly that for Germany in 2014, when the public saw themselves in the faces of all the players, and I would love to see the same thing happen for England too.


"Just to be a part of it, we're absolutely buzzing".

"But I think - and I said the same before the game against Russian Federation - it will be 50-50 against England".

The semi-final will be played on Wednesday and it promises to be an enthralling affair. "It" refers to the World Cup trophy, and "home" refers to England.

Speaking to the Mirror, Southgate said that the team have discussed the 1966 World Cup winning team and what they mean to the country.

"I videoed it to look at the players, the matches and I guess as a young player you wanted to see the best players, the level they were playing and see what you could learn from it".

Every team's circumstances can change very quickly.

"(We hoped we would have) a long month together, which we have done.

"I watched it with some mates, at a mate's house", he said. You might not get the chance again.

Despite some disappointing early performances, the 23-year-old's speed was a constant threat to Sweden's defence in England's 2-0 quarter-final win on Saturday.

"Before I knew it, I'd missed my train". In my career, whenever I picked up silverware, I expected to win I and I sense the same mindset with England right now.

But at this moment you should not get ahead of yourself and think about what will happen in two or four years' time, because you are in the semi-finals of the World Cup.
