Matt Le Tissier's plan for England to reach the World Cup final

11 July 2018

The players have spoken about how they have been keeping track online of the scenes back home while Southgate believes winning in Russian Federation would be bigger than 1966, the only time England have won the World Cup, due to the global reach and worldwide connectivity of the game.

In recognition of Gareth Southgate's fantastic leadership and his now iconic wearing of a waistcoat during the tournament so far, Leeds City Council staff are also being offered the chance to join supporters across the country by putting on their own waistcoat attire, taking part in "Waistcoat Wednesday".

"When England played Colombia we noticed traffic levels drop by about a third so we're anticipating similar on Wednesday", said Frank Bird, an emergency planning officer at Highways England.

The iconic Black Prince statue in City Square is now holding an England flag and its very own football.

. "We want to continue doing everybody proud".

We're not sure what to make of it!

Fellow fan Alex Klein, 28, added: "If we win, if we beat Croatia I'll, I'll probably cry, because to see England in a World Cup final is, is like a dream, a lifelong dream".

"Gareth's sideline style has meant our waistcoats are really scoring with our customers, with sales doubling since the World Cup began", said a spokeswoman for Marks & Spencer.

18 of the 20 World Cups of all-time have gone to nations that aren't these four - have we ever seen such an open contest?

About a dozen England fans passing through Heathrow wore dark blue waistcoats over their T-shirts in tribute to Southgate who has taken to wearing a waistcoat on the touch-line along with suit pants and a dress shirt and tie.

"You can feel the encouragement and support".

Fans have been dancing in the town's streets and chanting It's Coming Home following England's wins earlier in the tournament.

"I'm not normally a massive football fan, but it brings everybody together", he said.
