THE hopes and fears of the nation have reached new heights ahead of England's semi-final clash with Croatia.

But defeat still stings for Gareth Southgate and his overachieving players.

In 1990, three years before Kane was born, England also fell short at the semifinal stage - on penalties against West Germany.

"I've got a amusing feeling that the momentum is so good, and, you know, especially now that we're all going to turn up with special Gareth waistcoats, and that can only help can't it", said fan Lee Walkup, 50. "But, in time, I'm sure we'll reflect upon the progress we've made".

NPR's sports correspondent Tom Goldman says today's match is being played against a political backdrop.

"But if we are ready and compact like we were against Argentina, I don't believe we'll have any problems".

But not everyone from Bournemouth will be rooting for Harry Kane, Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson. And Croatia would never let England get so close again. There is still one game to play and the most important of our careers.

She added that she is flying back to Croatia and would be watching the game as part of a joint birthday football celebration.

Pundit and former England star Gary Lineker said he was "utterly choked" but the "young side gave absolutely everything".

It's four years away, sure, and a lot can change in that time.

"I've got the utmost respect for him - he's been banging goals in for Spurs for several seasons - but he's not alone, his team-mates play at top clubs, so it will be hard".
