Is It Time To Rename Southgate Station Gareth Southgate Station?

As England prepares for its first World Cup semi-final in 28 years against Croatia on Wednesday evening, scores of supporters say they will be wearing a waistcoat in Southgate's honour as they cheer the team on.

"It's unbelievable to meet any heroes from '66 and it gives you so much inspiration, obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament", he said.

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is fast and unsafe alongside Harry Kane", the Croatia coach said at a press conference.

The centre-back has probably been England's best player at the FIFA World Cup, dropping a lot of jaws with his world-class displays. "We look forward to the future", said the Manchester United man. "And I don't see why it would be a surprise that Croatia went this far because we have great players".

Maguire is a very good defender who has proved himself in the Premier League, and it would not be a bad idea for Liverpool to sign the England global in the summer transfer window. In any case we feel good, safe and confident.

Considering the fact that he can immortalise himself in the next six days, depending on results, we want you to cast your mind back to the first time that Southgate took charge of an England match.

Southgate has experienced the pressure before as a player after featuring for his country at France '98, and feels this group could surpass the 1966 World Cup-winning team in greatness if they triumph in Russian Federation.

Thompson went on to explain that Maguire deserves to play at a bigger club and labeled him the English Van Dijk, "No disrespect to Leicester but I can't see him being there come to the end of the transfer window". So to be here now, leading this team out, I'm so proud.

"To inspire kids watching this tournament is incredible because I was one of those kids growing up who wanted to play for England".

"They have been playing at an extremely high level for their clubs".
