Gareth Southgate's team play Croatia on Wednesday for the chance to meet France or Belgium in the final and Alli, who scored the second goal in the 2-0 last-eight win over Sweden, admitted he was not happy with his performance in that game.

Jan Vertonghen has backed the Tottenham Hotspur contingent in England's squad to fire them past Croatia and into the World Cup final.

Umtiti played his part in a strong defensive effort by the French, too, helping to shut out the highest-scoring team at the tournament and leaving Belgium's golden generation of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku to regret another missed opportunity at a major tournament. In the match, France relied on their excellent set of defenders, as Samuel Umtiti and company managed to hold the high-flying offense of Belgium scoreless.

Ahead of the tournament, Rose had told family members not to travel to Russian Federation over concerns they would suffer racist abuse, a decision which he later said had upset his father, Nigel Rose.

"We want people to celebrate.but not at the expense of law-abiding fans and emergency services' resources", he said.

The first real opening came in the 16th minute when De Bruyne hooked the ball into the path of Hazard whose shot was just wide of Huge Lloris's far post.

"There is still one more step to take, but we are proud of what we have done".

He is not a figure popular with Tottenham fans given his connection in London and a selection of them chose to give him stick on Twitter after his latest performance in a France kit.

"It is not until you look at social media and the internet that you realise how big it is", Alli said on Monday.

"So we were at home and I went to get changed and I thought, 'Hmm, shall I wear those socks?' We still needed the win, but I thought, 'No, it's ridiculous'".

"It feels really good".

"We're immensely privileged to be in the World Cup final", France coach Didier Deschamps said.

The Red Devils will be busting with confidence having got the scalp of pre tournament favorites Brazil.
