  • Russia v Croatia – FIFA World Cup 2018 – Quarter Final – Fisht Stadium

England fans were gathering in their thousands in pubs, parks and stadiums on Wednesday as a nervous nation waited to see whether Gareth Southgate's team could overcome Croatia to reach their first World Cup final in over 50 years.

One defeat against a second-rate Belgium XI has tarnished an otherwise flawless record for Southgate's side, while England have avoided perennial powerhouses Spain, Germany and Brazil.

In sharp contrast to the feverish atmosphere, Alli and his teammates are in relaxed mood in the sleepy seaside resort of Repino, 45 kilometres (28 miles) northwest of Saint Petersburg. So there's a little hint for you.

"Nutmeg him? Hopefully", said Alli".

"The Last few years, these last few tournaments, we have been knocked out in the group stage or barely got through so to get to a World Cup semi-final is fantastic".

Rhys Masters, from Southbourne, said: "This is the best squad we've had since I've been watching England".

"I don't know what will happen if we win, probably nobody will go to work".

The first of the World Cup semi-finals is upon us, with either France or Belgium set to advance to the final when they meet on Tuesday evening.

While most of us will be plonking ourselves in front of a screen for the big game between England and Croatia tonight, there are a dedicated few that are actually making the trek over to Russian Federation to see the action unfold IRL.

"Football's coming home, I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly".

"The atmosphere for every game has been unbelievable, and as we've progressed through the tournament it's only got better".

"Whether we win or lose, we're creating history", he said. "I think it's going to be incredibly loud in any bar we end up going to for the match".

England is ranked 12th in the world and Croatia 20th.

This is just days after Croatia's Football Federation (HNS) sacked their assistant coach over a video he posted after Saturdays' victory to Russia.

Defender Domagoj Vida, who scored against Russian Federation, escaped with just a warning from Fifa, which bans political statements, for also appearing in the video and shouting "Glory to Ukraine!"

May received the number 10 jersey of Croatia captain Luka Modric.

Mia Šetula, a Croatian student at Bournemouth University, admitted she will be cheering for England's opponents tonight.
