He was that bad and confirmed the doubts so many of us had expressed about him prior to that woeful performance. Now, this is a massive day for the English team, it's their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.

Former England captain Steven Gerrard says Gareth Southgate's side have "done the country proud" - and believes they will beat Croatia in their World Cup semi-final. "Why would we change given how far we have come playing as we have?" In the last few seasons he's always scored more than 25 goals and he's one of the best strikers in the world. "Croatia deserve respect, they've got some wonderful players".

Indeed, this first World Cup meeting between the pair will have a historic outcome.

Now England's manager and his players can earn the chance to make themselves immortals.

It's a face-off between England and Croatia.

"They are capable of going the whole way".

England's shock run to the last four has captured the nation, and after easing past Sweden with a 2-0 win on Saturday afternoon, they now take on Zlatko Dalic's Croatia in Moscow.

Pundit Paul Merson has told the Daily Star that he thinks Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren won't have slept well thinking about having to play against Harry Kane tonight.

Southgate has done a good job of taking the ego out of this England team and the media charm offensive allowing fans to get to know some of the players has been great to see.

He said: "Helena really misses me when we're separated because of sporting obligations".
