'Come to Russia,' FIFA ambassador tells England fans

Harry Kane praised for response to Ben Williams

London, July 9 England's 1966 World Cup hat-trick hero Geoff Hurst says Gareth Southgate's young team can match the achievement of Alf Ramsey's men and go all the way in Russian Federation.

Harry Kane has insisted that England's ambitions will not be satisfied by a first appearance in a World Cup semi-final for 28 years and that "finishing the job" is the target in Russian Federation.

"I used to watch Beckham and (World Cup-winning Italy midfielder Andrea) Pirlo, players like this, over their careers - they have got a fantastic right foot on them and everyone knows that", Tripper said.

Not many England fans will be as proud as Eric Hogg who was in Russian Federation to see his nephew Harry Kane lead his country into the World Cup semi-finals. Given the money we have, that the Premier League is the biggest league in the world, and we've got St George's Park, we have what you need to be successful, so the minimum we...

"It's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament, and we've got a tough game coming up against Croatia, but we feel confident".

"I don't think we have succeeded yet - success is hard to define but in my eyes and I think in everyone else's eyes back at the (team) hotel I think this isn't a success yet", Dier told reporters today after the team's training session. Harry is probably even more physical than Van Dijk which is another plus and I'd see them as a great combination.

Whose stolen Supreme Court seat was it, anyway?
Barrett is 46-years-old, married, a mother of 7 and is devoted to her faith. "And that's exactly what happened today", she said. Some have suggested that Kethledge could be another justice in the mold of Trump's first nominee, Neil Gorsuch .

Harry Kane is now preparing for the biggest game of his career, but that has not stopped him taking time out of his day to make one young fan's week.

England football manager Gareth Southgate has likened striker Harry Kane to England rugby legend Jonny Wilkinson.

Kane is mindful of the influence he now wields as one of the game's top stars, but the status is one he appears to embrace.

"So to be here and be part of it, to lead this team out makes me so proud".

"As a player I know I have a job, on and off the pitch, to inspire people", he said.

England's achievement in reaching the last four has been played down by some after they qualified from a group containing Tunisia and Panama before meeting Colombia and Sweden in the knockout phase. "Hopefully we continue to show that on Wednesday".
