Karaket, a two-month-old goat, picks England as the victor in the other semi-final match.

Belgium and Croatia will now be seeking a first World Cup final appearance, while France could reach a third after 1998 and 2006, and England have to go back to Wembley 1966 for their one and only final.

The entire nation has been behind the England team, flocking to pubs and event across the country to cheer on the team.

Councillor Judith Blake, Leader of Leeds City Council, said: "England's performances under the astute management and leadership of Gareth Southgate in this World Cup have been absolutely sensational and instilled enormous excitement and pride in people of all ages across the country and of course here in Leeds".

The retailer has been England's official suit sponsor since 2007, and Southgate has now made the waistcoat everyday attire for many.

England were excellent against Sweden - sparking scenes of jubilation back home - but are likely to see far less of the ball against a technically excellent Croatia side, who like to dominate possession.

There followed lean years - England failed to qualify in 1974 and 1978. Harry Kane takes the field with England in their final group stage match Thursday. We want to be here till the end. Only the winners advance until the semi-finals.

After all the wins in this year's remarkable World Cup run, Southgate & co play their own playlist full of their favourite "old-school" tracks on the team bus. No such luck for this song, which peaked at 66 in the United Kingdom charts.

England have been handed a boost following the news that Croatia defender Sime Vrsaljko will miss their World Cup semifinal through injury. With a contribution from Keith Allen and a rap by John Barnes, the song reached number one in the United Kingdom charts.

The Second Round, which you can read about here, was something of a massacre for the left's chances, with Spain, Portugal, Mexico and Colombia all crashing out. "We are one step closer to what is the biggest game in football as a professional".

More than just being a brilliant song, Three Lions represents a narrative departure from previous football anthems.
