The Detroit Lions and the Three Lions: Drawing inspiration

The players have spoken about how they have been keeping track online of the scenes back home while Southgate believes winning in Russian Federation would be bigger than 1966, the only time England have won the World Cup, due to the global reach and worldwide connectivity of the game.

England's shock run to the last four has captured the nation, and after easing past Sweden with a 2-0 win on Saturday afternoon, they now take on Zlatko Dalic's Croatia in Moscow.

"I was convinced before the World Cup that Harry Kane would have a good tournament - and he has not failed me", Marta wrote in The Guardian. "It is a young team, the majority of the players will be back next World Championship and then have more experience at club level", he told RT.

"It's tough. We're gutted, you know. We have had a fantastic journey, further than we thought", he added.

If it's finally happening for England, could we dare hope that it could soon finally be happening for Detroit?

"It's been great to get to this stage but we wanted to go on and win it".

What Civil Rights Rulings Could Look Like Under Kavanaugh
One case likely to draw attention is Kavanaugh's 2015 dissenting opinion on the health care law's contraceptives mandate. Murkowski supports abortion rights, and it was a key reason she voted against Trump's Obamacare repeal last summer.


The infectious song, with its chorus "It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming, football's coming home", was written by pop star Ian Broadie and comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner ahead of England's hosting of Euro 96.

Speaking to Sky News 22 years on, the ex-footballer said: "Football's coming home, I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly".

"We worked as hard as we could... it hurts, it hurts a lot and it will hurt for a long time".

Gareth Southgate's England side stand on the brink of history in Russian Federation, a game away from their first World Cup final since 1966.
