Jamie Vardy sends Gareth Southgate update ahead of World Cup semi-final

England’s Dele Alli did the Fortnite dance after scoring against Sweden

Jordan Henderson will be carefully managed this week as he battles to be fit for England's World Cup semifinal clash with Croatia on Wednesday, due to a tight hamstring.

After a penalty shootout-win over Colombia lifted the nation's World Cup curse, the Three Lions swept Sweden aside to set up a semi-final showdown with fellow surprise-packets Croatia.

England's remarkable set-play success is the fruit of extra preparation on the training ground with attacking coach Allan Russell, who has travelled with Southgate to the United States to study strategies from the National Basketball Association and NFL. But the match between Croatia and England is the one that could be even more interesting. I think he knows me as a person and he knows I wouldn't get carried away with it or think too much into it.

"I'd love to be able to do it with however many millions who are watching at home but the supporters who are here, they're singing and I know what they've been through and I met lots of them before we came". At 22, Alli became the second-youngest scorer for England at a World Cup behind Michael Owen.

"We are looking forward to a different style of game against England because they like to play attacking football". "It's [meant so] much to me and the whole team!"

He said watching his son for the first time in Russian Federation against Sweden was "brilliant and nerve-racking" and recalled the journey of the child into worldwide football star. "Now, having had the baby, I've really felt a massive weight off my shoulders".

I haven't watched England and thought: 'Wow.' In any game.

The Spurs ace scored his first goal of the competition on Saturday afternoon as he headed home Jesse Lingard's cross to seal a 2-0 win against Sweden, and fans will be hoping that it sparks improved performances after a disappointing tournament to date. But for me, as a family man, it's so important to be around when those special occasions happen.

Hamilton said that his immediate post-race remarks were down to the exhaustion he felt after such a demanding race. Raikkonen crossed the line ahead of Valtteri Bottas , who had led with only five laps of the race remaining.

Alli's career has continued on an upward curve since he left MK Dons, but that has not stopped him bringing some of his pre-match rituals from his League One days to the World Cup.

Yet he was there to head in Jesse Lingard's cross to double the lead, after Harry Maguire's first half opener.

The World Cup Final is scheduled to kick off at 4pm on Sunday, July 15.

However anything could happen in each of those matches of course. The big guys were sent home and the working teams stayed.

"We will be more competitive".
