CROATIA is going nuts about their team's appearance in the World Cup semi-finals - but one group of fans had particular reason to celebrate during their penalty shootout win over Russian Federation.

The Euro '96 anthem managed to topple Drake from the top spot, clocking up over one million streams in just one day.

Southgate's England side will play Croatia in the semi-finals on Wednesday evening, where England captain Harry Kane will be hoping to get on the score sheet as he pursues the coveted Golden Boot award.

Southgate has manfully steered around the ship and Walker does not think the manager "gets as much credit as he deserves" for his work in bringing this group together.

"Until five or six years ago I was bit vain, and in a way glad that in 1998 we set the bar so high that it was hard to even contemplate, let alone jump over it".

"The only team I would have feared playing against is Brazil", he said.

"Again, because we have good players available to come in. We should continue to show that belief against Croatia - we've got a real chance". Hendo (Jordan Henderson) was another one who was feeling tightness in his hamstring, which was why we made the change (taking him off in the closing stages).

"But now, I pray and I would give anything in the world that this squad eventually "confines us to history". Two former Paris Saint-Germain team-mates entered into a wager ahead of a quarter-final clash between their respective nations at World Cup 2018.

As the hysteria back home following Saturday's quarter-final win proves, so are the rest of us - and long may it continue, well, for at least another week. We have completed it.

The Manchester City man hailed England's campaign in Russian Federation as "a pleasure".

"I remember people saying he's going to be a one-hit wonder and he's just completely proven them wrong and blown it out the water".
