No absentees for England training ahead of World Cup semi-final

It is coming home? Odds on England World Cup win shorten after Sweden win

Two years ago England crashed out of the European Championship in the first knockout round with a 2-1 defeat by Iceland after an abysmal performance.

"The one thing that's come across with this squad is they've kept their feet on the floor, nobody's getting too excited and I think that's the right approach".

England looked drained of all inspiration and confidence and their manager Roy Hodgson quit on the spot.

"The style of play has changed and so have attitudes. Croatia deserve respect, they've got some wonderful players".

The Three Lions striker admitted that he was also inspired meeting Sir Geoff Hurst, who was the hero of his country in the final of the 1966 tournament. "It's completely irrelevant, that one defeat against Spurs".

"Straight after that game you want the floor to eat you up. You want to forget about it and lock yourself away", he said.

Southgate and his players trained at their base in Repino on Tuesday morning before heading for Moscow and the Luzhniki Stadium where their fate will be decided on Wednesday evening.

Asked how he would avoid the song, Southgate added: "I would just walk out of the room, it is an anthem and has followed the team for a long time but involved some hard moments as well".

Young said the FA's support staff deserve their share of credit for making the down-time remain enjoyable.

"I don't think we have succeeded yet - success is hard to define but in my eyes and I think in everyone else's eyes back at the (team) hotel I think this isn't a success yet", Dier told reporters on Monday after the team's training session.

"In honour of the England boss" new-found football fashionista status, we're inviting supporters to grab a waistcoat and button up to beat blood cancer. We have had the chance to make a difference.

In an attempt to take them out of their comfort zone, the players were put through a number of drills, including a four-mile hike with 21kg on their backs before camping on Woodbury Common.

"That is what we've been trying to do".

From what we have seen in Russian Federation, it's fair to say it appears to have worked.

Its 44 forces across England and Wales recorded 387 incidents and made more than 70 arrests over the weekend for mostly alcohol-related disorder. "We're not working much now so you can imagine what it will be like if we win".

"But of course you get an accumulation of fatigue, through a tournament that's why we took the decision we did against Belgium more than anything".
