England's run to the last four, where they will face Croatia, has come as a huge surprise given Southgate's relative lack of experience in management and the fact the team lost to Iceland in the last 16 of EURO 2016.

"And the most magnificent thing is he is 23 years old, so he is still focused, keeping the desire to get better, as a player".

"It was a song I couldn't listen to for 20 years, so it has a slightly different feel and it's nice to see people enjoying it slightly differently", he told a news conference at Luzhniki Stadium.
