Jordan Henderson has hailed England's camaraderie under manager Gareth Southgate, citing team spirit as one of the side's key weapons as they prepare for Wednesday's World Cup semifinal against Croatia.
The Year 4 teacher said the school is buzzing with the excitement of the World Cup match tonight - Wednesday - when England take on Croatia.
'It's a special feeling to know that people back home and out here in Russian Federation are enjoying the experience just as much as we are, ' the midfielder said.
The clash at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium marks England's first appearance in the last four of football's showpiece tournament since 1990. 'All the celebrations and the songs they're singing back home, it inspires us as players to be able to sort of bring the nation together and put smiles on people's faces.
"We'll just have to assess people as we go". We win as a team.
Now, Liverpool FC midfielder Henderson has admitted that he has been regularly hearing from his club manager during England's World Cup run. It's down to what we do behind the scenes, what we work on in training, all the hard work to get here.
"I just keep seeing texts saying, 'Yes England!".
The Liverpool FC midfielder is now on duty with his national team in Russian Federation as he bids to try and help the Three Lions win the World Cup for the first time since 1966.
"I think there is a lot more to come but finally they see Jordan Henderson".
"I'm so pleased for him because he's a great person as well".
