Celebrities say England team did country proud after semi-final defeat

"1998 will never be forgotten and should not be, but I would love it if eventually the 1998 "Fiery Ones" can be moved aside so that we can talk not only about 1998 but also a bit about 2018", the former Real Madrid player said.

The immortal line from the Baddiel and Skinner and the Lightning Seeds' Three Lions (Football's Coming Home) has moved beyond a social media trend to become a mantra for fans who are desperate to see an end to the years of hurt.

With just over 48 hours to until England's semi-final against Croatia, millions of pounds worth of bets are expected to be placed on the Exchange.

"We tried. I think the whole team gave 100 percent. We're not working much now so you can imagine what it will be like if we win". Send us a message on our Facebook page or on Instagram with your stories, photos or videos. Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic have shone brightly for their team and will hope to continue doing so.

Bilic believes a constant theme in Croatian national sides is they up their game against the historically bigger sides, thus their low key performances against Denmark and Russian Federation, beating both on penalties, should be disregarded.

Sandy Castle, general manager at the pub told the Recorder: "We made a decision to publish the letter to reach out to our customers, to remind them how much we enjoy hosting events like this and providing a safe environment for everyone". Ten years ago we had a famous generation and now we are close to them because we are in the semi-final after 20 years.

Despite having been forced to two penalty shootouts in succession, Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic insists they'll be ready for their World Cup semifinal against England. "I just wish them all the very best of luck".

The Croatia defender set up the equalizer in the second half and then saved a likely goal by clearing a shot off the line in the first half of extra time.




The game, which takes place at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, will be aired on ITV at 7pm.

Both teams' fans predicted victory despite the surprise outcomes this tournament has produced.

The last quarter-final match was played between England and Sweden.

On that occasion, the Uruguayans defeated a heavily-fancied Brazil team 2-1 at the Maracana in the final second-stage group game, which effectively served as the tournament's final.

"That defeat is completely irrelevant", he said, with a face like thunder.

"They played their best, it obviously wasn't to be".

"It's been great to get to this stage but we have fallen a little bit short and it hurts".

"Until five or six years ago I was bit vain, and in a way glad that in 1998 we set the bar so high that it was hard to even contemplate, let alone jump over it".
