England main beneficiaries of set-piece goal glut

England have been far more reliant on set-play strategy than fellow semi-finalists Belgium and France, who have struck three goals each from them, while their next opponents Croatia have scored from only one set piece and one penalty.

Giles Hurley, CEO for the Uk and Ireland, said: "Everybody is getting behind the England team out in Russian Federation, including our customers and colleagues".

But with Rakitic and Modric operating centrally and Andrej Kramaric inclined to drop off behind lone striker Mario Mandzukic, the danger of Croatia dominating the central areas is a very real one for England. I just get emotional when I think about my boy on these type of pictures with his team mates and the World Cup. At 22, Alli became the second-youngest scorer for England at a World Cup behind Michael Owen.

"I knew the team was more than capable of winning in the last 16, I was really confident the boys would do the job and not miss me too much. I felt like my movement was good, but on the ball I wasn't sharp enough, I didn't keep it as much as I should have", Alli said.

"It's incredible, because I was one of those kids growing up who wanted to play for England".

He said watching his son for the first time in Russian Federation against Sweden was "brilliant and nerve-racking" and recalled the journey of the child into worldwide football star.

Kane scored twice in the opening game against Tunisia, including a last-minute victor, and a hat-trick in the rout of Panama.

Golovin's post-match press conference featured 15 questions, 10 of which concerned her flame-red under-garments. I know that Phil Brook, the chairman right now, he believes in strict tradition, going back to the '50s, '60s.


The company said it was "aware" of the incident and congratulated England on its win.

"I thought it was a great performance, obviously with so much pressure - the world watching on, England watching on", he added. It will be a battle again but I trust us, I have belief in us'.

While France have their own plethora of attacking superstars, it will be defensive midfielder N'Golo Kante who holds the key to victory for Les Bleus.

After a heartbreaking loss on home soil in the final of EURO 2016, France have a point to prove and will be determined to secure their spot in the World Cup final.

'I just want to make them proud and it's really nice to see my dad - you know I had him as a coach when I was younger and he always wanted me to be a footballer.

"We will be more competitive".
