England's Harry Kane may disturb the Croats

Captain Harry Kane is leading England's unexpected bid for glory, and is hoping to inspire the next generation of footballers by going all the way in Russian Federation.

"To meet any heroes from '66 is incredible".

Croatia lost to hosts France in the semi-finals 20 years ago in their first World Cup as an independent nation, going on to beat the Netherlands in the third-place play-off. But they played well and made it hard for us. It is a great experience for us, and we got to learn from it.

ESPN's Charlie Gibson takes in all the action and fanfare in Moscow as England's World Cup journey comes to an end at the hands of Croatia.

"It's tough. We're gutted, you know. We are one step closer to what is the biggest game in football as a professional".

Manafort says he’s being treated like a 'VIP' in jail: Court filing
Ellis said he made that decision in response to Manafort's complaints about the difficulty in getting ready for the trial. He's even got his own "private, self-contained living unit, which is larger than other inmates' units", the filing says.

Nearly 20 million people in Britain tuned in for the victory over Sweden, not accounting for the many more who watched in pubs and public viewing areas. 'We worked so hard, the fans were wonderful, it was a tough game, a 50-50 game, when we look back we will think there's stuff we could have done better.

"We feel proud to make the fans proud because that's what we wanted to do when we set out", Kane said.

"We want players to be 100 per cent but we will see after training".

For Kane, who has scored 20 or more Premier League goals four seasons running, it was not until after the 2014 World Cup that he established himself at the top level. "I'm just hoping he's recuperated really well for this one".

Today's game will see Lovren reacquainted with Kane, who has carried his prolific form in the Premier League to Russian Federation and is the leading scorer at the tournament with six goals. "They know we've got beaten but we've come so far". "A bit of a stronger squad, we can bring subs on that would be stronger than theirs".
