The fans received a warm welcome from locals who gave them high-fives while they were walking around the streets of Volgograd, where England opened their World Cup campaign. "Maybe that's because they are quite young and have their careers still in front of them". Check out the latest 2018 World Cup odds below and then visit SportsLine now to see which teams have the best chance to win the 2018 World Cup, all from a European football expert whose model returned an 1,800 percent profit on the bookmakers' closing odds.

Belgium has never been to the final of a World Cup, but that's exactly what they look poised to do as the highest-ranked team (No. 3 in the latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings) left in the tournament.

"I'd love to be able to do it with however many millions who are watching at home but the supporters who are here, they're singing and I know what they've been through and I met lots of them before we came". So to be here now, leading this team out, I'm so proud.

The players have seen the videos of fans wildly celebrating their quarter-final victory over Sweden and are aware of the mood in England but Dier says their eyes are fixed on their next task.

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

Only a few months ago, Young and Trippier were far from sure of getting into England's World Cup squad, never mind the starting team.

Mentally, I think you are ready, whatever happens.

Gareth Southgate might tweak some things tactically, but I don't think that will prove to be that important in deciding the outcome. They'll be raring to get out there and win again.

The England players will not panic, they have proved that.

"But of course you get an accumulation of fatigue, through a tournament that's why we took the decision we did against Belgium more than anything. We are just trying to be in the best possible place on Wednesday". "It" refers to the World Cup trophy, and "home" refers to England. Hopefully we can get to the final.

Of course, this could just be the start for this England team, like 2006 was for Germany.

As England progressed into the quarter finals of the World Cup last week, an oft-overlooked north London tube station was suddenly thrust into the limelight. On a two-way play (winner including extra time), England is -165 and Croatia is +142.
