Many Irish will echo Gareth Southgate's attitude to 'football's coming home' song

It became an instant hit and was belted out in pubs, night clubs, on the streets and in football stadiums throughout the tournament as an England team featuring centre back Southgate reached the semi-finals.

Zlatko Dalic's side go into Wednesday's World Cup semi-final knowing they have to improve after battling through two penalty shoot-outs in the knockout stages in Russian Federation.

Mia Šetula, a Croatian student at Bournemouth University, admitted she will be cheering for England's opponents tonight.

Warnings to England fans and players had ranged from the supposed threat lurking from masses of hooligans, to players being seduced by Kremlin-backed 'honey traps'.

She said: "I'm hoping Croatia can reach the final but I'm expecting a really intense game".

Leicester City will want a huge fee for England's World Cup hero Harry Maguire, who is reportedly on the radar of Tottenham Hotspur.

Steve, who was at the 1982, 1990 and 1998 World Cups as a member of the media, picks up the story: "Twenty years ago in 1998 I got involved with Statto (Angus Loughran) from (Frank) Skinner and (David) Baddiel's Fantasy Football, which was all the rage at that time", he said. "Right", I thought, "I'd better put those socks on this time".

Get your waistcoats out, LADS! 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. I felt something odd in my knee and after talking with the doctor on the sideline we decided I should come off.

'We were at home and I went to get changed and I thought, "Hmm, shall I wear those socks?" So I did and we won 2-0.

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. They'll have to be hugely proud of the team and they must think that they can beat us.
