Pogba urges France to avenge Euros defeat

A win for England would help erase World Cup futility.

"In honour of our England getting to the semi-final, we've chose to decorate one of our buses to show our support".

Incredible scenes have filled the town centre after the team progressed through the competition reaching the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years.

"I know that I am important and that I was not at my best in the group. The pressure of a World Cup, can they handle it?", Neville told ITV.

England are in the last four of a major tournament for the first time since Euro ´96, when Southgate himself missed a penalty in a shootout defeat against Germany.

"It is unbelievable. It is the dream of dreams, the dream of the future, everything", Mbappe said.

"We´re going into a semi-final but it just seems like it´s the next step on the journey", Southgate said.

"I'm not saying that I'm not proud of what we did all together 20 years ago". This could be the more-exciting of the two semifinal matches.

In the end, neither Croatia nor England was expected to make it this deep into the tournament, but here they are and France is waiting.

They beat Belgium on Tuesday night by a single Samuel Umtiti / Marouane Fellaini goal.

Giroud, 31, kept his starting spot for France in the semi-final clash and has started five of his nation's six matches in the tournament so far.

"Two years ago, I remember what happened two years ago", he said. Will it be France; Belgium; England or Croatia?

"This is maybe a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity".

A World Cup champion will be crowned on Sunday.

Players like captain Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois are still aged under 28 and will be eager to have another chance.

In delirious scenes in Paris, fans let off fire crackers and released smoke flares - and predicted they would win a second World Cup.

"I am here with them today to write a new page in history, the most lovely page. We´ll repeat that this Sunday", said one supporter, Sebastien, as the crowd chanted: "We´re in the final!"
