"We have every player available, which is huge credit to our players for the way they have committed to the physical programmes that we have done", Southgate said.

Belgian premier Charles Michel teased President Emmanuel Macron that France's win against Belgium in the World Cup semi-final had been "very lucky". England beat Scotland 2-0 to make it to the quarter finals (Germany ultimately won the tournament) and the song became a national phenomenon, taking on a life of its own.

The Three Lions face Croatia in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Wednesday (19:00 BST) in their first World Cup semi-final for 28 years. "And then we look forward to doing it all again on Sunday!"

England is making waves at the World Cup in Russian Federation, and they're being followed by a bittersweet tune.

Robert Prosinecki, a member of the 1998 squad, said: "I would so much like that they be better than us".

He said: "We are really proud of the support we have received".

The real Southgate has naturally been tight-lipped about England's chances of winning their first World Cup since 1966.

The English bulldog was reportedly named after Hungarian-American actress Zsa Zsa Gabor. Zsa Zsa's body was returned home and the family held a special farewell ceremony.

"He knows what he wants and he wears it extremely well but it's always blues and dark colours and he brightens it up with a shirt".

"You have to feel confident, that's the main thing", he said.

The group is facing one its most hard meetings in years due to US President Donald Trump's criticism of the organisation and his targeting of German leader Angela Merkel.

England's dream that "it's coming home" continues, with Dele Alli scoring a second-half victor.

Southgate displayed his character after England's July 3 victory over Colombia, offering a supportive hug to Colombian player Mateus Uribe after his miss in a penalty shootout helped England advance.

If you've been following the World Cup, particularly England's performance in it, perhaps you've heard the chant: "It's coming home, it's coming, football's coming home".

Three Lions, recorded by David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and the Lightning Seeds, was originally written for Euro 1996, another tournament where England made a run through to the semifinals.
