England United: How Gareth Southgate's Young Lions Have Brought a Country Together

TWITTERWorld Cup song Three Lions Football’s Coming Home is UK No 1 AGAIN after 20 years

Today's game against Croatia in Moscow will be just the third time the Three Lions have played in such a fixture and the first since 1990.

Again, it doesn't matter if the World Cup comes home or not, England team will be coming home to roaring welcome from fans and with their heads held high.

"There's a lot of rubber necking in pubs to see a small screen but it's the atmosphere they go for so we want to give them the atmosphere and big screen experience". "What a great way therefore to show our support by ensuring that some of our recognisable civic buildings and the famous Black Prince statue on City Square, are now displaying their England colours with great pride!"

It's the unmistakeable refrain being sung, hummed and whistled wherever English football fans have gathered for the last couple of weeks, but for two decades "Three Lions" was the source of nothing but pain for England manager Gareth Southgate.

Thousands of supporters in Russian Federation and millions at home will watch nervously as the team face Croatia for the right to play in Sunday's final - and potentially end 52 years without a major trophy.

The first of the World Cup semi-finals is upon us, with either France or Belgium set to advance to the final when they meet on Tuesday evening.

He predicted a 2-0 England win and said he believed the celebrations would be on a larger scale than in 1966 if England go on to win the trophy.

"I think it is going to be 2-0", he said.

Deschamps may have bitter memories from that Euro final in front of a home crowd, but he is now on the verge of joining an elite club of coaches who have also won the World Cup as players.

If anyone doubted that, they only had to listen to the words of Southgate.

England and Croatia's fate will be decided 24 hours later when they face off in Moscow.

"I'm just so proud of all the squad and Gareth because they're all working together and doing the country proud", he said.
