Disappointed fans join Moscow ticket scalpers as World Cup final nears

Disappointed fans join Moscow ticket scalpers as World Cup final nears

Fellow fan Alex Klein, 28, added: "If we win, if we beat Croatia I'll, I'll probably cry, because to see England in a World Cup final is, is like a dream, a lifelong dream".

Belgium's tactical flexibility could be their secret weapon in going all the way to lift the World Cup, Martinez has now masterminded the win over Brazil and the Spanish coach will now be relishing the tactical test against France.

Just three members of the present squad were born when England reached the semi-finals in Italy - Kyle Walker, Jordan Henderson and Ashley Young.

Marks and Spencer, official tailors to the England team, declared last Saturday #NationalWaistcoatDay in honour of Southgate and his team.

And Croatia are the "dirtiest", having picked up 12 yellow cards - although their two knockout games to date have both gone to extra time.

After far exceeding expectations in the early stage of the competition, Russian Federation was knocked out by Croatia on Saturday in the quarter finals, leading many in the host nation to stop following the tournament.

"As a player I know I have a job, on and off the pitch, to inspire people", he said.


"The consistent comparisons and messages I receive from friends all came about since Harry Kane's success at Tottenham over the past two years, and especially this World Cup. But hopefully we can do our jobs on Wednesday as a team and individuals and contain them".

Danny, who lives in West London and works for Hackney Council, is now waiting to see if his lookalike's golden touch will take England all the way to Sunday's final.

Belgium managed to deny Neymar last time out, but they must now do the same with Mbappe who dismantled Argentina in the last 16.

"It's incredible to meet any heroes from '66 and it gives you so much inspiration, obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament", he said. "I can not tell you [if he will play on Wednesday]", Dalic said.

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.

Fans have been dancing in the town's streets and chanting It's Coming Home following England's wins earlier in the tournament.
