England have progressed to their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years, but Croatia defender Dejan Lovren - who plays his club football in England - says he is not paying attention to the World Cup fever that has swept the country.

You may well have switched on your TV set at the weekend expecting an exciting game of footy between England and Sweden - which indeed it was.

"We've talked, touched briefly, certainly, on the team which won [in 1966]", he said. It's unbelievable because I was one of those kids growing up who wanted to play for England.

He also claimed Southgate's side are capable of beating France, should they win their semi-final against Belgium, saying: "It's going to be France vs England, and in that case I would pick England as favourites".

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


England supporters have been notably sparse in Russian Federation so far, deterred by warnings of possible violence and logistical difficulties.

But British Airways, which has seen a 700 percent increase in searches for flights to Russian Federation on its website since England's penalty shootout win over Colombia last week, has now released hundreds more seats on Moscow flights by using bigger planes.

About a dozen England fans passing through Heathrow wore dark blue waistcoats over their T-shirts in tribute to Southgate who has taken to wearing a waistcoat on the touch-line along with suit pants and a dress shirt and tie.

It seems like the choice would be between declaring a national holiday and letting people skip work guilt-free or not declaring one and having the largest sick day in decades.

England are Croatia's opponents in the final four of the tournament as they bid to reach their first final.
