England fans embrace Southgate's 'accessible' team

Seaman is now backing England to overcome Croatia in Wednesday's semi-final and set up what he believes will be a final showdown against Belgium next weekend.

The 76-year-old - who scored a hat trick in the final at Wembley against West Germany - told the Sun newspaper that Southgate had fostered an impressive spirit of togetherness in the squad.

First-choice strikers Ola Toivonen and Marcus Berg worked hard at the coal-face of Sweden's defensive system but their wayward finishing, especially Berg's misses against England, would eventually see them reach the end of the road in Russian Federation. "How they're still held and revered".

England is the only team in the semi-finals that has lost a game in the tournament.

"Perhaps in the modern era that would be even crazier - social media and everything else, the global thing is so much bigger".

"I only played for three clubs, I have a real affinity with all three, but England has been the biggest part of my life really".

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

"The only team I would have feared playing against is Brazil", he said.


Harry Kane looked tired at the end of Saturday's game, and Jordan Henderson was taken off as a precaution.

"I think we could have achieved more", he said.

Southgate has made bold decisions to cast aside Jack Wilshere, Rooney and Hart among others, and then replaced them with inexperienced players.

Chief Superintendent at Humberside Police Darren Downs said: "Saturday night was our busiest of the year so far - even busier than New Year's Eve which is usually our most demanding day of the year".

"My guys feel like conscript soldiers whose term of service was over just when they were preparing to go into battle".

Subasic, who plays for Monaco in the French league, has been Croatia's hero in successive penalty-shootout wins in the knockout stage, saving four spot kicks in total.

Rewinding to the 1966 World Cup (as I must), fans did not rush out to buy a copy of Sir Alf Ramsey's bright blue tracksuit with its elasticated red, white and blue cuffs, which he wore with white socks.
