Delight for England fans - but minority branded 'total disgrace' by police

World Cup: England fans 'dare to dream' after win over Sweden

Almost 20m tune in to England quarter-final win

There is something about this young England team and their articulate manager Gareth Southgate that has created a genuine connection not felt for a generation.

"It's all there, it's all apparent and we've just got to prepare them as well as we can for the game".

England have won the World Cup just once, when they hosted it in 1966, but the public and pundits are starting to dream.

"The only time we went out was after the first game against Uruguay when we drew 0-0, which wasn't a good start".

"Gareth Southgate has re-energised English football, as anyone who's been to a Walkabout to watch a match will tell you!"

"Up until that corner, I felt that we had everything under control", Sweden coach Janne Andersson said.

England's class of 2018 have been backed to go on and win the World Cup by 1966 legend Sir Geoff Hurst.

"We looked composed", England captain Harry Kane said.

England will play Croatia in the semi-final on Wednesday night on ITV, with both broadcasters showing the final next Sunday.

Many "Three Lions" supporters made a decision to stay home because of global tensions and previous violence with Russian fans at the 2016 European Championships in France. Nadine Hanlon, 43, and husband Lee, 40, put the World Cup on a big screen next to the top table while they enjoyed their wedding breakfast.

But Modric said they would be ready to face Southgate's men.

The navy-blue, five-buttoned item of men's clothing has so far seen England through the group stages of the World Cup, the last 16, and the quarter-final against Sweden.

"We've already got extra staff in place to help us keep you all safe and having fun".

Manchester United's Young, who picked up an ankle injury against Colombia, has also improved with rest and rehab work on Wednesday. There was Robert Green allowing a seemingly harmless shot from US forward Clint Dempsey through his grasp and into the net in a World Cup group-stage game in 2010.

He said shops were damaged and people abused and assaulted, while other fans climbed on buses and cars, causing damage to the vehicles and in some cases themselves.
