So what are you waiting for?

About a dozen England fans passing through Heathrow wore dark blue waistcoats over their T-shirts in tribute to Southgate who has taken to wearing a waistcoat on the touch-line along with suit pants and a dress shirt and tie.

Thousands of supporters in Russian Federation and millions at home will watch nervously as the team face Croatia for the right to play in Sunday's final - and potentially end 52 years without a major trophy.

England will play in a World Cup semi-final for the first time since Italia 90, but Southgate insists his life outside of the game will not change if England progress to the final, or even win the tournament.

Just the small matter of a game in which Croatia stand between Southgate and his ambition of matching Sir Alf Ramsey's feat of taking England to the World Cup final.

France await the winners in the final, but Southgate is convinced the future is bright whatever the outcome.

He said: "We are really proud of the support we have received".

Are you happy with England's World Cup campaign? We know what's at stake and in such moments you forget any fatigue you may feel because this is maybe a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Who knew one of the biggest crazes in the World Cup would be a credit to Gareth Southgate's fashion choices?

He said: "This team is nowhere near the level they're going to be capable of, partly because of their age, but also because they'll have more big-match experiences over the next few years with their clubs and with us". They play dynamic soccer, hail from diverse backgrounds and boast social media nous that undoubtedly baffles and bemuses those of an older generation.

England will play Croatia at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium at 7pm United Kingdom time.

"The welcome of the Russian people has been top", Southgate said. "Now I want to go and see what's going on in Russian Federation", said one fan, Michael Roberts, 27, as he waited for his flight.
