England's Dele Alli has a 'crazy' list of superstitions

       Dele Alli believes this England squad is bringing the country together as they chase World Cup glory in Russia

The first semi-final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup takes place on Tuesday, with France and Belgium set to clash at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in Russian Federation.

Mbappe appeared unsafe throughout, creating six scoring chances for his side, who will wait the winners of Wednesday's other semi between England and Croatia.

England are through to the World Cup semi-finals - incredible. The support from all the fans in Russian Federation and back home has been unbelievable. Among the spectators watching in St Petersburg was Pamela Anderson (inset), girlfriend of Adil Rami.

Alli scored his first World Cup goal as England cruised into the last four with a 2-0 win over Sweden on Saturday.

And then, not to get ahead of ourselves, but the next big question is, just how many more pints would be sold assuming England makes it into the finals against either France or Belgium, both rival European teams?

"You are in your own little bubble when here - training camp, coming back, getting ready for the next game".

Former Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand has hailed Paul Pogba's performance vs Belgium as France reached the final of the World Cup. "He wants you to try things, he wants you to express yourself and as a player that's what I've always been (about)", Alli said. We've been playing well, we're learning and we're all enjoying it. "She's helped us in the same way throughout the whole tournament, it's never changed depending on how far we've come or depending on the magnitude of the games". "As players, we know that sometimes you can have games where your control isn't as good as it should be or your decision making isn't as sharp - and I felt like it was one of those games", he said.

'As a team it was a solid performance by us.

"Of course there is some power left for the English", said Dalic.

"Yes, we are in another final - two years ago, I remember what happened two years ago", the coach said after Tuesday's victory.
