World Cup Star Pays for Hometown’s Entire Bar Tab

Jeff Peard was cheering for England, and said the atmosphere in Winston's, especially during a big moment for England, made it a good place to watch game.

"We're one of only three teams ever to get to a World Cup semi-final". There will in time be positives to take, it's very hard now to put that into context, it's a bit too soon, really, because I think you have to suffer the result a little bit.

The England boss was amused at the prospect of fans both in Russian Federation and back at home observing Waistcoat Wednesday in tribute to the man who has guided the nation to within perhaps just 90 minutes of a first final since 1966.

"Two years ago, I remember what happened two years ago", Deschamps said, via Reuters.

The coach of the 1998 side, Jaroslav Ciro Blazevic, said for a long time he did not want any other team to match his players' achievements.

England were the favourites heading in to the semifinal, but it wasn't to be, and those watching at home were left distraught, some in tears. "We'll be there and it's a once in a lifetime opportunity seeing them in the World Cup". Fans in Castlefield Bowl in Manchester city launched their drinks into the air as they celebrated Kieran Trippier's goal.
