Gazza's message for Southgate and his England squad

Postado Julho 11, 2018

The song was released before Euro '96, when Southgate missed England's crucial penalty as they lost a semi-final shootout to Germany at Wembley.

The civic buildings of Leeds Town Hall and Leeds Civic Hall will also be lit up red and white on both Tuesday and Wednesday night in order to cheer on England, alongside proudly flying a St George's flag.

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

If you follow football (or "soccer" as it's known in North America) then you'll no doubt be tuned into the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which is now taking place in Russian Federation.

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.

As the tournament reaches its final three games, fans are not only starting to wonder about who will bring home the World Cup trophy, but who will take home the tournament's five other awards.

England manager Gareth Southgate says he knew that the negative press about Russian Federation leading up to this summer's World Cup would not turn out to be true.

Just four teams remain, all of them from Europe: Belgium, France, Croatia, and England.

"I am here with them today to write a new page in history, the most attractive page". It was like an early final.

He said: "This team is nowhere near the level they're going to be capable of, partly because of their age, but also because they'll have more big-match experiences over the next few years with their clubs and with us".

From a Belgium corner, Toby Alderweireld tested Lloris with a smart shot on the turn, but as the half progressed, France began to create more chances. They have performed to a consistently high level.

"Every city we've played in, and our base in particular, but everywhere we've played, we've had a really warm welcome, the organization of the tournament has been absolutely first-class".

And going back to England, I have to give a special mention to Harry Maguire. He could have gone with the safe option of Cahill's experience in that position but he chose Maguire and has been rewarded for it. Football can unite. We can feel the energy and support from home, and that's a privilege'.
