England has not been as far as the semi-finals since they last hosted the tournament in 1966.

The civic buildings of Leeds Town Hall and Leeds Civic Hall will also be lit up red and white on both Tuesday and Wednesday night in order to cheer on England, alongside proudly flying a St George's flag.

It's the unmistakeable refrain being sung, hummed and whistled wherever English football fans have gathered for the last couple of weeks, but for two decades "Three Lions" was the source of nothing but pain for England manager Gareth Southgate. "As a player it's always now or never especially in a big Cup competition because it only comes a few times in a player's life", he said.

This allowed teams like Croatia and England to make the most of the opportunity and they are deservedly facing off in the other semi-final.

Henry did everything he could to help Belgium bring down France, but ultimately the team with more goals than any in the tournament was unable to score in the semifinals.

France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris produced a great save in each half, denying the potent Belgian attack of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku the chance to advance the country to its first major final. The victor will play the victor of England-Croatia in the World Cup Final this weekend. First win on penalties in the World Cup.

This time around, however, they have a first-class team.

"Putin warmly congratulated Macron and all French fans on their team's victory in this match and their advancement to the World Cup final", the statement reads. "We were a group of guys having a lot of fun, enjoying our football, learning and improving all the time - and that's what these lads have done". When I played against him (in the Champions League in February 2017) he had played only 10 matches and I didn't know him. We're confident but we know it's going to be very hard.

France might be the favorite to win the World Cup at this point.

"That's it. There's no point watching the World Cup anymore", a woman identifying herself only as Vasilisa from Samara, one of the host cities for the World Cup, tweeted soon after Russian Federation crashed out.
