A Single Goal Sends France To The World Cup Final

A Single Goal Sends France To The World Cup Final

The team has yet to make a mark on a major tournament, but beating Brazil to reach the semi-finals will have instilled belief they can win the biggest prize of all.

The civic buildings of Leeds Town Hall and Leeds Civic Hall will also be lit up red and white on both Tuesday and Wednesday night in order to cheer on England, alongside proudly flying a St George's flag.

England's matches so far in Russian Federation have attracted huge television audiences at home and wild celebrations, with affable coach Gareth Southgate and his vibrant young squad capturing the hearts of a nation. In 2006, they were beaten in a penalty shootout by Italy in a World Cup final that was overshadowed by Zidane headbutting opposing player Marco Materazzi in the chest in extra time.

Gareth Southgate believes his heroes have the power to unite England by securing a place in the World Cup final.

Belgium took early control of the midfield with France content to sit deep and eliminate the threat of counterattacks from Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne. "He'd be willing Gareth Southgate and the England team to go all the way in Russian Federation with every fibre of his being".

After winning back-to-back penalty shootouts to reach their second-ever (1998) World Cup semifinal, Croatia's tank will be closer to empty than any of the four sides still competing in Russian Federation, but Modric believes they can dig deep once more and qualify for the final.

Belgium's 23-match unbeaten streak - including five in this World cup - can be attributed to the tactical nuances of Roberto Martinez, who was unceremoniously sacked by Everton in May 2016. They should beat Croatia.

Gareth Southgate's Lions will face Croatia in the World Cup semi-final - in front of a record TV audience, expected to hit more than 37 MILLION.

"I didn't see France running away with the game", Martinez added.

"They have everything they need to be a great team and they are a great team".

"They have so many athletic players, to have resisted in defence is very good". England has been craving a top title since it won the World Cup in 1966 and has a tremendous, unforseen opportunity ahead, with the weight of its country on its shoulders.

"We are going to turn up in our England tops - we're genuine".
