With the English team now just one victory away from the finals, the BBPA believes that this week's Wednesday night match against Croatia could see an extra 10 million pints sold in pubs across the United Kingdom, according to the Plymouth Herald. "England are a risky team in this competition".

Up to 30,000 people were expected to converge on London's Hyde Park for the capital's biggest screening of a match since the European Championship in 1996, with other big crowds expected in Leeds, Manchester, Bristol and on Brighton beach on the south coast. "That's why I'm here - I don't want to miss that". "I'm feeling excited. Really happy about today's game".

Infogol's Analyst thinks England will score again from a set-piece against Croatia, but who are they backing to score in Wednesday's semi-final.? But cities, towns and villages should all be deserted by 7pm and will be "much quieter than Christmas Day", according to the RAC.

Samuel Umtiti headed in the only goal in a 1-0 semi-final win over Belgium in St Petersburg yesterday morning (Singapore time), consigning the Red Devils' "golden generation" to another bitter defeat.

Wimbledon not moving men's final
There had been talk of the World Cup final being shown on the big screen on Henman Hill at Wimbledon but that has been ruled out. As Business Insider UK's Sports Reporter, I attended Wimbledon in the VIP area.

"We have to be pragmatic and we have to be realistic", French manager Didier Deschamps said ahead of England vs. Croatia, according to ESPN.

Politicians and royalty issued their own rallying cries.

A drummer played Bradford City favourite "Take Me Home, Country Roads", and also "England" and the one everybody has been chanting everyday recently, "It's Coming Home".

Roads will empty during the match, the victor of which will face France in Moscow on Sunday.
