FOR a bit of a giggle we thought we'd see if our photographer Phil Cannings' seven-month-old Sprocker, Tilly, could predict the outcome of tomorrow's World Cup semi-final clash between England and Croatia.

While the Three Lions as a collective have been fantastic in Russian Federation under Gareth Southgate so far, Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has arguably not shown his best form at the World Cup, and it's something that hasn't gone unnoticed by the player himself.

It will, of course, take a lot more than mastering the Lotus Position to help the Three Lions get the better of Croatia in Moscow on Wednesday night.

The iconic Black Prince statue in City Square is now holding an England flag and its very own football.

"Even when things don't exactly go Les Bleus' way, these young hardworking players get impressive results", Marcus said in Tuesday's edition of "The Banter."

England have a clean bill of health ahead of their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.

They were runners-up to Italy in the 2006 World Cup hosted by Germany.

Three Lions Is Officially Number 1 In The UK
By watching any England game during this World Cup, it's clear to see that they've put a huge emphasis on their set piece ability. With no official song for England at this year's World Cup , football fans have re-embraced 1996 classic, Three Lions .

"We've worked hard on getting to know each other off the pitch and creating that togetherness and understanding with each other", added Stones.

Speaking after France claimed the first spot in Sunday's final with a 1-0 victory over Belgium, Ferdinand made a very bold prediction for the second semi-final.

But Dier insists they can not take any comfort from that experience - because Real went on to win the trophy a n d Modric was the star of the Champions League final.

"He is someone we are aware of and we have to be ready to control him".

"All the celebrations and the songs they are singing back home, it inspires us as players to be able to bring the nation together and put smiles on people's faces".

'This acquisition would be a fantastic addition to our holdings and would come at an exciting time for us while we build the London Collection as we plan the New Museum in West Smithfield'.
