England nowhere near their potential, says manager Gareth Southgate

England nowhere near their potential, says manager Gareth Southgate

The RTE Sport pundit has written off the chances of both their semi-final opponents and one of the other nations, leaving Belgium as the only team that could stop Gareth Southgate's side.

'The experiences of the last few weeks, the milestones they've hit, are a great reference point moving forward. "We can feel the energy and the support from home and it's a very special feeling for us".

These were short, simple passes that anyone could make, let alone your first-choice central midfielder in a World Cup quarter-final.

You would do well to find any fan as excited as Ferdinand is for England's World Cup semi-final with Croatia on Wednesday evening.

Pubs and bars across the town centre will be showing the match and it is likely Friar Street and Station Road will be closed to traffic again, with buses diverted and picking up from alternative stops.

"But regardless of that, I think the football across the board has been really exciting, really entertaining, and the hosting of the tournament and the cities that have hosted it has been outstanding". Harry Kane takes the field with England in their final group stage match Thursday.

It has previously been reported that Baron Cohen is making a film called Greed, about the lavish lifestyles of the super rich. This video ends with a message saying that " Sacha Graduates Soon" followed by the logo of the short-lived Trump University .

Roberto Martinez has admitted it took him two years to give Belgium's players the belief that they can go on and win their first World Cup.

"This team is nowhere near the level they will be capable of, partly because of age and partly because over the years they'll have more big-match experience".

Lloris admitted that, the Belgium team is the best busting with talent and they have to be at their very best to cause an upset.

He said: "I never, never, never, ever mention my own history.

Another post doing the rounds on Russian social media compared the remaining teams in the tournament to guests who stay at a party after the host has gone to bed.

Up for grabs are the Golden Boot Award (most goals scored), Golden Ball Award (best player), Golden Glove Award (best goalkeeper), Fair Play Award (best disciplinary record) and the Young Player Award.
