Jamie Vardy sends Gareth Southgate update ahead of World Cup semi-final

After beating Sweden 2-0 in the quarter-finals, England qualified for their first World Cup semi-final since 1990 and are only one win away from a place in the final.

The Euro '96 anthem managed to topple Drake from the top spot, clocking up over one million streams in just one day.

Gareth Southgate's charges will play Croatia in the semi-final of the World Cup on Wednesday as the try to emulate the class of 1966.

Meanwhile, England's 1966 World Cup hat-trick hero Geoff Hurst believes Southgate's young team can match the achievement of Sir Alf Ramsey's men and go all the way in Russian Federation.

"So you've got to have a racehorse trainer's eye at times to sort that out".

"Until five or six years ago I was bit vain, and in a way glad that in 1998 we set the bar so high that it was hard to even contemplate, let alone jump over it".

Swedish great Ibrahimovic who now plays in the U.S., challenged the former England captain on Friday to a wager on the outcome of Saturdays England v Sweden game.

"I said at the start of this that over this summer, this is our family".

"That's why we took the decision we did against Belgium (to rest players) more than anything".

"If you're asking me a question in a one-off final can we do it? We should continue to show that belief against Croatia - we've got a real chance".

"If we get through this and do well at the next tournament, we'll be talking about them as world class".

He added: "Hopefully we had a long month together, which we have done".

"But for us, it's all about the experience".

"Thank you for coming on our ride with us".

"As a player and as a professional I know that I have a job, on and off the pitch, to inspire people and inspire kids watching this tournament".

Raheem Sterling shrugged off the latest criticism aimed at the Manchester City forward to capture the feeling in the England camp and back home.
