Players of England celebrate winning the match against Colombia

"Wednesday's cancelled! Fans go wild as Three Lions reach first World Cup semi-final for 28 years", said the Sun on Sunday after England beat Sweden 2-0 in the Russian city of Samara. "But it's an wonderful feeling to be going to a semi-final at a World Cup". They are really important messages for us.

Mourinho said he believed England have a "golden chance" to reach the World Cup final for the first time in more than 50 years.

The win sent shockwaves through the United Kingdom as 32 million England fans exploded with joy (bottom centre) after watching the Three Lions make it through to the semi-final of a World Cup for the first time since 1990.

"We had good controlled possession, but we do want to create more clear chances and I think we can create more clear-cut chances", said Southgate as seen on the Mirror.

"But we just want to keep improving as a team of coaches, as a team of staff, a team of players".

"It's nice within football to affect some things and the players have that opportunity as well because they have a voice and they have influence on young people, especially the young people from the areas they came from".

"That's so important for us because I think Sweden like to point out we're paid this and that, and we're the team of entitlement, when I don't think that is the case".

The 25-year-old England global - who earns £40,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com - played in all 38 Premier League matches for Leicester last season.

Many football fans make bold claims about their football teams, stating that they will do some random forfeit if their team actually succeeds in the unthinkable. I was at Palace when they weren't quite as good as they are now.

"We have got to be here for another week (as there is the third-placed play-off) so it's up to us now which games we play in".

"I think that is probably starting to register with them now - maybe I tell the truth most of the time". On the other hand they haven't pressure from the press and fans for the first time.

The Tottenham striker is also level with Gary Lineker's England record from the 1986 World Cup as he leads the race for the Golden Boot.
