France, looking for their second World Cup triumph following their victory at home in 1998, will play a risky Belgium side in Tuesday's first semi-final.
"They are really good at set-pieces and their tall players are unsafe at corners".
Southgate has engendered a more open, relaxed environment at national team level, with the players carrying less emotional baggage and playing with more freedom.
The two sides are evenly matched, so it's a hard one to call, but the Red Devils were perhaps a little fortunate to only concede one goal against Brazil, who spurned several promising opportunities and were controversially denied a penalty. Southgate deserves a lot of plaudits for the team's performances.
"But when it happens like that you have to make sure you are still benefiting the team and helping them as much as you can, off the ball".
Unpredictability is the operative word for this year's cup, as no one predicted that only European teams would be left on the field; that Brazil would have been knocked out of the semi-finals; and that Russian Federation had gone as far as it did. That's the detail you get in the semifinal of the World Cup.
Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic has backed his team's defense to quell England striker Harry Kane when the sides meet in their World Cup semifinal on Wednesday.
He still wears the same shin pads he had as an 11-year-old, despite at one stage losing them for six months, and has a series of rituals he performs ahead of every game.
The third place finishers from the 1998 World Cup have needed penalty shoot-out wins to bypass both Denmark and Russian Federation in the knock-out phase.
Although England still have to beat Croatia, the entire country is crossing their fingers and singing "It's coming home" in support.
"1998 will never be forgotten and should not be, but I would love it if eventually the 1998 "Fiery Ones" can be moved aside so that we can talk not only about 1998 but also a bit about 2018", the former Real Madrid player said. We have played five games, but being exhausted can not be an alibi.
"Whether we win or lose, we're creating history", he said.
