Neville thought 3 England stars would struggle at World Cup

Harry Winks of England is blocked by Linas Klimavicius of Lithuania during the FIFA 2018 World Cup Group F Qualifier between Lithuania and England at LFF Stadium

But after two ugly, penalty-shootout wins in the knockout stage, oddsmakers aren't too high on Croatia's chances of eliminating England.

Mr Colgan's English wife Charlotte will also be cheering on the Three Lions, and he has three children - Gemma, Lily, who is travelling after finishing a degree at the University of Birmingham, and Ben, who in Birmingham studying.

"Trippier, Maguire, Jordan Pickford, I would put those three in a category where, before the tournament, I was thinking, 'Can they step up?"

Victory over Croatia would send them into the final as hopes of a repeat of the historic 1966 triumph rise.

"My allegiance is with England, my home country, but of course this has been my home for the last 15 years so I'm looking forward to a very special night".

Modric will feature in a midfield that consists of the likes of Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic, while Mario Mandzukic, Ivan Perisic, Mateo Kovacic and Dejan Lovren are just some of the names in a Croatian team expected to be England's toughest test yet.

She added that she is flying back to Croatia and would be watching the game as part of a joint birthday football celebration. If I'm honest, I don't think there are many England players who would get into this Croatian team.

During the day England fans were planning the best and least expensive way to get hold of a ticket for the final.

Another football fan flying to Croatia to watch the game is James Stephenson, from Winton. "England are a risky team in this competition".

"We just had to do it", said Hoodgraff member Artyom Burzh, who started the painting after watching Russian Federation beat Egypt in its second game of the tournament.

"As a venue we can only take responsibility for so much, and thought a reminder to our customers that they should always enjoy themselves responsibly is important".

"It's been an incredible run and I feel lucky to have been here for this match".

After the win against Sweden, Bournemouth experienced a party atmosphere as thousands flooded into the streets.
