  • England-World Cup

Tottenham have plenty of money to spend this summer and, after establishing himself as one of the world's top young centre-backs, Maguire suddenly looks very good value at £50 million.

Southgate was speaking ahead of England's World Cup semi-final against Croatia at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Wednesday - the Three Lions' first appearance at this stage of the tournament in 28 years.

However, ahead of England v Croatia tonight, I can't disagree this time.

However, former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has revealed that he was anxious about about how three England players would cope going into the tournament.

"Croatia has great players at great clubs around Europe", said Dalic.

She added that she is flying back to Croatia and would be watching the game as part of a joint birthday football celebration. If I'm honest, I don't think there are many England players who would get into this Croatian team.

"Sometimes I think these things are written and the way this tournament has opened up for England, is one of the reasons it feels like this is their time".

Both of his goals came from set-plays, and given he is averaging 0.29 xG per 90 minutes, he can be expected to get at least one chance in this game. There is no doubt that Southgate has been blessed with a plethora of English blood coming through the ranks all across top flight - if Ruben Loftus-Cheek seized his World Cup spot with a wonderful loan spell, the national team captain Harry Kane has had the most profound education - written off by many in his early years, the Tottenham Hotspur forward has been consistently sensational.

"Whether we win or lose, we're creating history", he said. "I've been jokingly saying that football's coming home, but now there's no reason why we can't win it". I am ignoring the meaningless match against Belgium.

"I just have a feeling that England will find a way to win".
