Southgate acknowledges England players are in a different era
To mark the monumental occasion on Wednesday, which is England's first World Cup semi-final since 1990, the iconic Black Prince statue in City Square is now holding an England flag and its very own football.
In addition to touching on England's preparations for the nation's biggest game in almost three decades, Southgate took the time to praise World Cup hosts Russian Federation. We've won a game in stoppage-time, we've had to recover from conceding in the last minute, we've been through extra-time, we've won on penalties, we've made several pieces of history - the biggest win, the first knockout win for ten years, first quarter-final win for longer. That's why we want our punters to wear waistcoats in tribute to the man himself. Wednesday evening is a huge opportunity for our boys to do what many of us thought was impossible before the World Cup began and reach the Final.
Croatia have sacked one of their coaching staff, Ognjen Vukojevic after he posted a pro-Ukraine video following the penalty shootout win over Russian Federation in the World Cup quarter-finals.
But British Airways, which has seen a 700 percent increase in searches for flights to Russian Federation on its website since England's penalty shootout win over Colombia last week, has now released hundreds more seats on Moscow flights by using bigger planes.
"This is a World Cup where the unexpected has happened".
Now the 47-year-old former England global is leading the team, which plays Croatia at 8pm tonight in England's first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.
"I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly", said Southgate. "So for me it has a slightly different feel", Southgate told reporters on Tuesday, before adding: "But it's nice to hear people are listening to it again". "We've got to this point because the collective has been so strong", Southgate said after the quarterfinal win over Sweden on Saturday.
Croatia are in the last four for the first time since 1998 but they had to survive two penalty shoot-outs against Denmark and Russian Federation to make it this far.
