England have managed to improve as a national squad under Gareth Southgate, who is leading the team in their first worldwide tournament since the 2016 European Championship, where former manager Roy Hodgson's contract ended following a 2-1 loss to Iceland.

"And we have to be like that, I think, if we are going to get in the final, so we'll have to perform well and play well."

"You obviously have got your family at home and the kids that you need to keep in touch with, keep checking in or the missus might go mad".

The Real Madrid midfielder is arguably the best in the world in his position and will duly demonstrate why, should England give him the time and space on Thursday.

The 68-year-old insists it is paramount today's team do not get carried away with the prospect of global football's greatest prize so close, and he has been impressed by how Southgate has managed emotions.

"We are looking forward to a different style of game against England because they like to play attacking football".

England's fairly muted celebrations reflected the routine nature of the victory over a hard-working Swedish side that had already gone further than expected in its first major tournament without Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"And there's the emotion and also the fans have paid a lot, come a long way and to be able to connect with them".

"I don't know what you're saying in the dressing room to the players, but whatever you're saying, it's working". "More the other night coming into Saturday".

Parker is the third player in National Basketball Association history to play at least 17 seasons with one team before leaving. But there will be suitors for him, with the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and Miami Heat all believed to have interest.

"But of course you get an accumulation of fatigue through a tournament, that's why we took the decision we did against Belgium more than anything".

"Hendo was another one who was feeling tightness in his hamstring, which was why we made the change".

I find this one really hard to call.

"Personally I don't think I played as well as I should have, but the team were resilient, defended well and dominated the game".

"Even speaking to my family, I didn't feel like I was playing well, especially in the first half".

The World Cup Final is scheduled to kick off at 4pm on Sunday, July 15.

Southgate's men beat Sweden 2-0 in Samara on Saturday to advance to the last four for just the third time in history.

This is a tough choice and I went for both teams scoring.
