Speaking to Yahoo Sport, the former Germany worldwide was glowing in his praise of Southgate's side, who will take on Croatia in a World Cup semi-final on Wednesday night.

Southgate tomorrow takes his team into the biggest game the country has seen since the 1990 semi-final.

"It's not the same if you play 90 minutes twice and 120 minutes twice, but I believe we've had ample time to recover and we're professional enough to know who needs what in terms of recovery", he said.

According to the Daily Mail, Southgate was bought a friendship bracelet by his wife and children prior to the tournament and has been wearing it throughout England's journey to the last four.

The song was released before Euro '96, when Southgate missed England's crucial penalty as they lost a semi-final shootout to Germany at Wembley.

"We've learned from our mistakes, which is the most important thing, and we've made things right", he said.

"For us as a team, it's another chance to create a small piece of history". Football is coming home!'

England too left Italy 28 years ago feeling that the team featuring Gary Lineker and Paul Gascoigne could have gone all the way. Their four-nation group was so weak that Southgate could afford to rest his starters after wins against Tunisia and Panama.

England will play Croatia at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium at 7pm United Kingdom time.

"They're getting blamed for what my generation and generations that followed did".

"The welcome of the Russian people has been top", Southgate said. I think, to be fair, the public have done that.
