England are through to the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time in almost three decades after a triumphant 2-0 win over Sweden.

Gary Lineker, who was part of that first tournament, allowed his emotions to spill over on television following footage of an interview with the late Sir Bobby Robson about that semi-final failure and England captain Harry Kane wants to channel that feeling among former players as the team look to write a happier ending this time around.

"I've met quite a few of those players and we know exactly how they're held and perhaps in the modern era that would be even crazier, social media and everything else, the global thing is so much bigger", said Southgate.

"When I see behaviour like this it makes me anything but proud to be English".

The page says: "At the Millwall Supporters' Club we think it is very important to help our local community, so we want to help to raise funds to help with the fix of an emergency response vehicle that was damaged after the England vs Sweden game in the World Cup 2018 Quarter Final. It is good to inspire people", Kane said at the Cosmos Arena in Samara.

With six goals so far in the World Cup, Kane is the leader of the England side on and off the pitch, but on Saturday, although he worked hard and led the attack intelligently, he wasn't the hero; England had plenty of heroes.

It is now 52 years since Sir Alf Ramsey's side became the last from England to lift the trophy and they remain an inspiration for the stars at this summer's World Cup more than five decades later. Do you feel we need some extra steel in midfield to combat the likes of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic? That's what we wanted to do when we set out to Russian Federation. He spoke of a squad of players who will do anything for each other and who want to work and to learn.

"I am daring to hope because I think this is a team marked by joy and newness and youth and Gareth Southgate's deep emotional intelligence", said Baddiel, whose iconic song has made its way back up the music charts this week. When I looked around, everyone was calm.

They will now face Croatia in the last four and, should they progress, come up against either Belgium or France in the final on July 15.
