  • It is coming home? Odds on England World Cup win shorten after Sweden win

Although Wembley was the home of English football long before 1990, back then England's home matches happened under the twin towers, rather than the arch.

"They are playing with the ultimate confident and it's a joy to watch", said the former Liverpool man, who played in both the 1998 and 2002 World Cups.

There may be an air of euphoria back home but England midfielder Eric Dier is adamant that for all the progress, success has yet to be achieved for the Three Lions at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"Of course, the tournament ended in disappointment and it is nice to be able to put a different frame on it now".

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.

Hamann believes the blend of team unity and a clear vision provided by coach Southgate has transformed England from pretenders to contenders on the global stage, even though he admits the current squad lacks the individual brilliance of yesteryear.

Serena Williams reaches 10th Wimbledon final with straight sets win
Serena Williams is into the Wimbledon final. "She's walking, maybe a little too fast", she said. "I think it's just not fair". Williams, who is in a major final just 13 matches into a stirring comeback, said, "This is insane , I don't know how to feel".

The 12 boys on the "Wild Boars" team and their coach were trapped in a cave for more than two weeks, and were all successfully rescued on Tuesday.

"It's a very short change around and the travel is a bit more complicated so, quite simply, I've just got my family coming".

Last night a potential World Cup final showdown with the French was set up after Les Bleus beat Belgium 1-0 in the first semi-final.

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler understands why so many in the current England squad are huge fans of manager Gareth Southgate.

That tournament ended in despair for the defender after missing the crucial penalty in the shootout, so perhaps it is little wonder that the level-headed manager and "bloody proud" Englishman has got lost in some of the celebrations in Russian Federation.

While the 24-year-old signed a new six-year contract in north London last month, Champions League winners Real Madrid have been long-term admirers of Kane, and could follow Luka Modric and Gareth Bale as players who have moved from White Hart Lane to the Spanish capital. Team triumph Southgate in normal time is estimated by 2.37 points and in overtime - 10.00. The way we train during the week is fantastic, always with high-intensity, everyone pushing each other.
