"We want to write history with a third place".

"Of course, we have one of two paths to go", Southgate said. I can see what we have achieved. "It's about creating an environment to be best we can be, a professional culture".

"They're a pleasure to work with". We have always respected our opponents and we expect the same from them.

Pre-tournament preparation was spot on: "We chose to play friendlies against teams who would be at the World Cup and that was a great lesson for us. Those friendlies were a huge help so that now here we are about to play the final".

Dalic said he had allowed his players to celebrate the victory on Wednesday night and was consequently unaware of the extent of any injuries in his squad.

Southgate reported that everyone had trained on Friday, but that some of those who had featured in the semi-final may not have recovered sufficiently to face the Belgians. "They did an very bad lot better than I ever did, or we ever did", he added.

That game saw both coaches heavily rotate their teams, and a similar scenario is likely in Saint Petersburg, with several fringe players pushing for a start.

"We don't want to take anything but a positive feeling out of the World Cup", Martinez said. "If we have a parade that would have been in one part of the country and we represent the whole country". That was just extra motivation for us.

Kane has six goals, despite sitting out England's final group game, a 1-0 loss to Belgium.




"And I think we need to take full credit for that because we've changed that.

It would be more powerful for him to win the Golden Boot having made that sacrifice".

Also, FIFA announced on Thursday that so far, all doping tests conducted before and during the World Cup have yielded negative results.

"It's been good, but I think I want to get home to see my girls Jessie, 10, and Molly, 13, now".

"I'm not scared of anything", he said.

"Even away from all the football madness, the people have been really friendly and welcoming", he said.

"We could have pushed a bit more in the second half".

"There were low expectations that relieved the pressure coming into the tournament but still pressure to get out of the group, win a knockout game and win a shootout and they coped with that".

A spokeswoman for the Prime Minister said: "We would certainly like to host a reception for the England football team who did so well in Russian Federation and that is something that we are going to talk to the FA about". "It's the same as if you're at a big club".
