England aims to build off run to semifinal

England's players celebrate Dele Alli putting them 2-0 up against Sweden

On Wednesday, Croatia defeated England 2-1 in a semi-final match and for the first time reached the World Cup final.

Despite the disappointment of losing Wednesday's semi-final in extra time, Southgate is determined England will leave Russian Federation on a high with victory against Belgium.

This year saw England's first semi-final appearance in a senior men's World Cup in 28 years and the class of 2018 now have a chance to eclipse the 1990 group if they can beat Belgium and clinch third place. "They have to use this experience for benefit and I know that what's happened over the last few weeks will make them a stronger team".

"I would like to see him play the final so on Sunday we both have a great day", he said.

Surprisingly, they looked like they were playing their first game.

"Croatia's passage to the World Cup final is a historic result which has made us the focal point of world attention", head of the board Kristjan Stanic said in a statement.

The England manager admits it is not a game that any team wants to play in, but changes will be as much down to the short turnaround and tournament exertions than anything else. We've raised expectation. I don't see a problem with that because we've also raised belief in the players.

He said: 'I don't think people fully understood the players (previously). "We'd like to redress having lost to Belgium once before already, too".

That's according to a team of American economists from UBS, who noted the new list has been structured to allow for faster implementation.

The third place play-off will be treated exactly like any other knockout game in the World Cup.

"If I'm honest, before the tournament I didn't expect them to do so well but we always want them to progress as far as they can". Deflated England and Belgium will nonetheless want to end their FIFA World Cup campaign somewhat on a high on Saturday.

"We will have to play our best match against France, our desire is big and so is theirs".

"Trippier is the obvious one because he's had to come off during the game and (Jordan) Henderson is also feeling his hamstring so we will just have to assess it". "We've improved on that and the players are up for improving more".

It was with Al-Ain that he first appeared in a major worldwide final, in the 2016 AFC Champions League, where they lost to Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors of South Korea.

"I mean, the reality is it's not actually my decision (not to hold a parade)", England boss Southgate said.

"I'm very happy that my pupil has done better".
