Bobby Robson would be willing England on at World Cup, says widow

CROATIA is going nuts about their team's appearance in the World Cup semi-finals - but one group of fans had particular reason to celebrate during their penalty shootout win over Russian Federation.

He also said there was no need for him to give his team-mates any tips on England's players, as they were all well aware of who they are up against.

"Now he is probably looked upon as the greatest Croatia player, which is some statement, and he is carrying the country's hopes". "What a great way therefore to show our support by ensuring that some of our recognisable civic buildings and the famous Black Prince statue on City Square, are now displaying their England colours with great pride!" Not even in my wildest dreams, and I am a big dreamer, would I have imagined this. "We have a privilege to get to the final", he said, before saying he was "here to write a new page in history". That's the detail you get in the semifinal of the World Cup.


France President Emmanuel Macron was on hand for the game in St Petersburg and came down to the dressing room to celebrate with the players and staff.

"In the changing room, Didier Deschamps was happy".

He said: "It's a special feeling to know that the people back home and out here in Russian Federation are enjoying the experience just as much as we are. Everyone is with us, we're all in this together".


"The task of getting the players to get over today's loss, I will admit, is going to be hard to deal with, but I think we have something important too before us".

"It's a group of people who share a vision of making Belgian football proud and achieving something important and these players have done that".

"I wouldn't say there are any glaring weaknesses (in England's team) since they are in the semi-finals, that says it all".


They would have had a tough time watching this tournament as previous champions and highly-fancied sides like Brazil, Germany and Spain have all been eliminated.
