Three players who can overtake Harry Kane

Three players who can overtake Harry Kane

Harry Kane has insisted that England's ambitions will not be satisfied by a first appearance in a World Cup semi-final for 28 years and that "finishing the job" is the target in Russian Federation.

"When I was watching him during the season I was so keen that he stayed fit because I thought this was a stage I was certain he could show he could play at", Southgate said after Maguire scored his first global goal in the 2-0 quarter-final win over Sweden.

"I've met quite a few of those players and we know exactly how they're held and perhaps, in the modern era, that would be even crazier", Southgate told Britain's daily newspapers.

Eric Dier says England are reaping the rewards at the World Cup for a change in approach following a humiliating exit to Iceland at Euro 2016 but are hungry to go beyond the semi-finals.

"We looked composed", England captain Harry Kane said.

However, after time to reflect on the game, Eric Dier believes that he and his England teammates will be better for their upcoming game. After completing treatment, Ben was awarded with a replica World Cup trophy.

Nearly 20 million people in Britain tuned in for the victory over Sweden, not accounting for the many more who watched in pubs and public viewing areas.

"We weren't aware of everything going on in the country as we were kept in a bubble", he said.

"He wants you to try things, he wants you to express yourself and as a player that's what I've always been [about]", Alli said. The agile defender has shown himself to have good speed with strong technique on the ball and a confidence going forward, all the while serving as a capable part of England's three-man rearguard.

Croatia boss Zlatko Dalic is hoping his defence can repeat their heroics against Lionel Messi and Christian Eriksen when they face Harry Kane in the World Cup semi-final. In 2014, the team didn't even make it out of the group stage.

Several England players are understood to be sharing in the nation's rediscovery of terrace anthem Three Lions and it is no surprise that Maguire is among them.
