Euphoric France dreams of World Cup glory after 20-year wait

Gary Lineker heads the ball against West Germany in the 1990 World Cup semi-final

The charismatic 49-year-old - who is in Russian Federation as a TV pundit for English broadcaster ITV - told The Daily Mail Modric and fellow superstar Ivan Rakitic will pose problems for England in their World Cup semi-final on Wednesday they have not had to encounter thus far.

Councillor Judith Blake, Leader of Leeds City Council, said: "England's performances under the astute management and leadership of Gareth Southgate in this World Cup have been absolutely sensational and instilled enormous excitement and pride in people of all ages across the country and of course here in Leeds". England fans have been superb since day one and they're going to have to be louder than ever for the Croatia game. "We can feel the energy and the support from home and it's a very special feeling for us".

If the final four games of this year's World Cup are anything like the last 60, it should be quite an exciting finish.

Federation Internationale de Football Association had invited the team to the World Cup final on Sunday but the governing body announced the boys wouldn't be able to attend since they are receiving medical treatment after their ordeal.

EU package does not cover all demands of Iran
Washington has since told countries they must stop buying the OPEC producer's oil from November 4 or face financial consequences. Iranians have complained that the hoped-for rise in foreign investment and trade after the deal has not materialised.

Pubs and bars across the town centre will be showing the match and it is likely Friar Street and Station Road will be closed to traffic again, with buses diverted and picking up from alternative stops. Biggest win in the tournament.

"If France go to the final against England, I think England will beat them".

For England, this tournament has been a tale of changing narratives and opinions, a team full of youngsters too green to know any better, a togetherness which has seen them through tough times, and the reversal of more than 20 years of major-tournament history and heartbreak. "We know we have some unbelievable players and a great manager and everyone is clear on what we want to do".

"They attack very fast".

In addition, the police have seized cash, handbags and jewelry valued at more than 1 billion ringgit as part of the investigation. The 1MDB government task force this week said 408 bank accounts involving funds of almost 1.1 billion ringgit had been frozen.

He said: "The disappointment is huge because the focus of the group was to try to win the tournament.

While watching this titanic struggle between two European footballing superpowers you may also have thought to yourself: "Praise the heavens, I'm finally able to enjoy a piece of entertainment which isn't infected by that accursed Fortnite video game that every fool and their auntie is chattering on about".

The Golden Boot is is the name of the award presented to the player who scores the most goals in the World Cup.
