England's opponents Croatia have knocked out two right-wing teams since the Group Stage, although had to rely on penalties to beat both Denmark and Russian Federation - the latter result leaving us with only democracies left in the competition. France then beat Peru 1-0 to secure their place in the knockout stage of the competition, before an uneventful 0-0 draw against Denmark attracted boos from fans at the final whistle. "That's what we want to see from him".
Ross's company Eady Signs is based in Kettering also, and ahead of England's semi-final against Croatia he couldn't resist the chance to make a topical change to the local sign.
"We know there are going to be hard moments and we'll have to be ready to suffer".
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. Now, I predict that the victor of the France-Belgium semi-final fixture will go on to win the final.
Maguire is now an England hero, after his performance in Russian Federation, where he has been one of Gareth Southgate's star players. Each of those winners will play in the World Cup Final on Sunday. I am sure that they will show this same attitude against Croatia.
I expect the teams to be evenly matched, giving viewers an exciting semi-final. To try to finish third in the World Cup doesn't happen often.
The past really means little for a lot of them.
"Every city we've played in, and our base in particular, but everywhere we've played, we've had a really warm welcome, the organization of the tournament has been absolutely first-class".
All we can say is that for two of these four sides that answer will come sooner rather than later, as today (*producer jump zoom*): one of these nations is going home.
