It's time for Gareth Southgate to come up with a big speech of his own.
Here are the six England players who are most likely to get a career-changing move after their exploits in Russian Federation.
"They are playing with the ultimate confident and it's a joy to watch", said the former Liverpool midfielder.
Harry Kane was not even born when England last reached the World Cup semifinals 28 years ago, but the Tottenham striker - who has met 1966 final hat-trick hero Geoff Hurst - fully appreciates the weight of history he and his teammates are making in Russian Federation.
Such was the impact of that loss and the criticism it provoked, it must have been tempting for Southgate to tell his players to put that experience out of their minds.
England will also be keen to avoid further penalty drama as they face a side who have won both of their knockout matches, against Denmark and then hosts Russian Federation, via shootouts.
"Nutmeg him? Hopefully", said Alli".
"I've met quite a few of those players and we know exactly how they're held and perhaps in the modern era that would be even crazier, [with] social media and everything else, the global thing is so much bigger".
The pair will battle again on Wednesday, and Alli has told The Guardian that he hopes to embarrass Modric again with another nutmeg on the global stage this time - but his focus will be on attempting to help England reach the World Cup final.
"In 1996, we had every game at Wembley and that was an advantage for us".
The duke said: "A new generation is enjoying the magic of this World Cup run".
"I don't think the players are as good as they have been in the past, but it nearly doesn't matter", he added. We've put everything in place.
"We've made several pieces of history".
We are really proud of the support we are receiving.
"You are always conscious of that because none of us are where we are just because of ourselves".
