Remember Gareth Southgate In This Pizza Hut Advert?

It may be coming home to No 1 on the United Kingdom singles charts but the coach of the England's national football team, Gareth Southgate, has revealed that he used to detest the popular Three Lions anthem.

Southgate - whose stock has risen as England have impressed in Russian Federation - has been wearing a trademark waistcoat throughout the World Cup.

Such is the interest in England's first World Cup semi-final since 1990 that the system crashed when London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced 30,000 free tickets would be made available to watch the game in Hyde Park via a ballot. "So, we lost the game and then on the Tuesday we were playing again, so I thought, 'Well, I'd better put the socks on".

The group is facing one its most hard meetings in years due to US President Donald Trump's criticism of the organisation and his targeting of German leader Angela Merkel.

England face Croatia tonight with the winners facing France in Sunday's final. He continued: "We have really toned things down because we have enough stuff".

"For us as a team, yes, it's another chance to create a small piece of history".

Southgate also recruited Allan Russell, the team's attack coach, who has keenly studied set-play moves in American Football and the National Basketball Association.

Another resident, 82-year-old Saburo Yokoyama, said he was horrified when he saw floodwater flowing just outside his house. The Japan Meteorological Agency said as much as 10 centimetres of rain per hour fell on large parts of south-western Japan.

THE hopes and fears of the nation have reached new heights ahead of England's semi-final clash with Croatia. First win on penalties in the World Cup.

'The hunger of players has been there for everyone to see, we are proud of the style they have played.

"A lot of young players were involved two years ago, suffered huge disappointment, we could have ignored that and looked to the future but we felt it was important to unpick it and find out exactly why we've had 10 years since we won a knockout game".

"Croatia are a good side and (Luka) Modric and (Ivan) Rakitic are superb players but we have the players to do it".

"I think Raheem has been fundamental to the way we have played - his movement, the positions he takes up, his pressing of the ball, his work rate for the team, the winning of free-kicks, the winning of corners, his speed to stretch teams", Southgate told the ITV World Cup podcast.

England's progress in Russian Federation has revived the Three Lions anthem - which includes the line "football's coming home".

"Football's coming home, I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly".
