The Three Lions are two wins away from getting their hands on the World Cup trophy for the first time since 1966, and Southgate's men are, so far, exceeding their own expectations at this summer's tournament in Russian Federation.

What's more, a quick browse on the World Cup collection section on the official M&S website, where the Southgate-style waistcoat is priced at £65, shows that it's only available in XXL online.

The 48-hour camp was designed as a team-bonding exercise, the confiscation of players' phones - Southgate's Palace contemporaries would not have had the luxury of mobile phones in the early Nineties - viewed as a means to bring the squad closer together.

Now it is about striking a balance between cherishing the moment and keeping even-tempered as England prepare for their first World Cup semi-final since 1990.

Meanwhile, West Midlands police said it took the most ever 999 calls in its history, logging 3,276 in 24 hours owing to "a mix of the sun, World Cup, and alcohol".

Asked about it at his pre-match press conference ahead of Wednesday night's World Cup semi-final clash with Croatia, Southgate said: "Football's Coming Home is a song I couldn't even listen to for 20 years, frankly, so for me it has a slightly different feel. They work hard for each other and there are no big superstars".

"Trippier, Maguire, Jordan Pickford, I would put those three in a category where, before the tournament, I was thinking, 'Can they step up?"

England's Harry Maguire celebrates after scoring the first goal against Sweden July 7, 2018.

Kane, who is the top goal scorer at the global showpiece in Russian Federation with six goals, feels reaching the final can inspire their next generation to keep dreaming big.

"They are all pampered, they're all headphones and you can't get anything out of them", said former player turned analyst Chris Waddle.

"They play very direct football, dangerous, fast, and they are really good at setpieces, and dangerous at corner kicks".

"We've strived to be as good as we could be at global level and it's taken us two years to get there".

"But equally, we're always looking at how we can hurt them, what are the areas we can exploit in the way they play?"

The Football Association confirmed on Sunday evening that England would be wearing an all-white kit in Wednesday's match.
