Is the World Cup really the best live tv in the world?

Harry Kane and one of the engraved fivers

Saint Petersburg, Jul 13 England manager Gareth Southgate hopes his team can ride the momentum generated by their run to the World Cup semi-finals and follow the path Germany took to the top of global football.

After a World Cup campaign which exceeded the expectations placed by many on his team, Southgate has now urged his players to make the most of their experiences in Russian Federation and aim to go better next time.

Belgium have already beaten us (1-0 in the group stage) so we'd like to address that.

'They're on their way to being top players but they're not there yet but we can see we're progressing and really heading in the right direction'.

"The honest thing is, it's not a game any team wants to play in", said Southgate, whose side have drawn praise for the way they have briefly united a country bitterly divided over Brexit. The players accepted the criticism they received, they took it on board and improved.

"We have high motivation to perform".

It has been suggested Southgate could radically alter his team to give some of his fringe players a run-out as England bow out in Russian Federation in the bronze-medal match in St Petersburg.

"We've set a standard in how we work, a standard in the way that we play and we want to aspire to that level every time we come out and every time we train".

"We have to think who can give us the best performance".

Josh Brolin, the man behind the Infinity Gauntlet, ushered in the random banning in a short video of him snapping his fingers . Confirmation of the ban wave's start was revealed in a post by one of the subreddit's moderators, The-Jedi-Apprentice.

"The cup feels so close we can nearly touch it but there is still a lot to do to get there".

Southgate is now the only Englishman to lose in the semi-final of a major tournament as both a manager and player. Everyone wants to play but sometimes it is not a good decision to play someone if their energy is not quite there. We'll be well prepared because this is a one in a lifetime opportunity.

Southgate added the perception surrounding England's national team has changed.

"We were motivated irrespective of that".

"When I was a player I had a very simplistic mindset". Football is about winning as a team. They have real humility.

"I was born in 1966 so I'm a World Cup baby. It's the same as if you were at a big club".

The Three Lions ripped up the script to reach the tournament's last four for the first time since 1990, losing to Croatia after extra time in Moscow on Wednesday evening.

"I must say the support we've had from home and the feeling of support is vast".

"We know where we are", he said.
