England fans make late dash to Russian Federation for World Cup semi-final

Fans in London celebrate England’s win. Spending in pubs in June had risen by 9.5 per cent compared with last year

"Creating the petition on the Government's website, a patriotic England supporter named Liam Betson has urged authorities to give people the Monday off after the World Cup final, because the next day 'will not be pleasant for all fans". "Now I want to go and see what's going on in Russian Federation", said one fan, Michael Roberts, 27, as he waited for his flight.

Another fan, Bradley Goldenberg, 46, was taking his son to share the moment.

"We've talked, touched briefly, certainly, on the team which won [in 1966]", he said.

"The progress of the England team in the world cup is very exciting for people across the country".

But England's revival under Southgate at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, now just one win away from their first finals appearance since 1966, has shot the song back on to the United Kingdom singles charts, with the line "football's coming home" also becoming the catchphrase of their campaign.

England supporters have been notably sparse in Russian Federation so far, deterred by warnings of possible violence and logistical difficulties.

Subasic suffered a tight hamstring towards the end of Croatia's quarter-final win over hosts Russian Federation and was unable to take goal-kicks before the tie went to penalties.

About a dozen England fans passing through Heathrow wore dark blue waistcoats over their T-shirts in tribute to Southgate who has taken to wearing a waistcoat on the touch-line along with suit pants and a dress shirt and tie.

We've given you five minutes to get all your wrong answers out and we should also point out that he did deploy someone in midfield that night who is more accustomed to a role as a striker.

Mr Corbyn's shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry was first to raise the idea at the beginning of the tournament, when England were seen as a longshot to bring football home.
