"I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly", said Southgate. "How they're still held and revered".

"At the beginning we were working together with the lads and trying to sell them the vision of what's possible, what we're looking to achieve in the long term".

Asked at his eve-of-match press call if he had been inundated by requests for tickets to England's biggest match in a generation, Southgate revealed he had only invited his loved ones to Moscow. Croatia lost their only previous semi-final match to host France in 1998.

"We've been one of the youngest teams in the tournament, the least experienced, but we were never quite sure how far this team could go", said Southgate.

Gareth Southgate admits he has got carried away (Owen Humphreys/PA).

"I don't know what will happen if we win, probably nobody will go to work".

"The one thing that's come across with this squad is they've kept their feet on the floor, nobody's getting too excited and I think that's the right approach".

"I think it's good the players understand it's a big moment for the country".


Such was the impact of that loss and the criticism it provoked, it must have been tempting for Southgate to tell his players to put that experience out of their minds.

Videos posted to social media saw huge crowds fill the streets in cities across the country after the team made it through to the World Cup semi-finals. I would have been going back into pre-season by the end of it.

"I've played in a lot of teams where, bloody hell".

"It's quite unusual for me to witness all the hype and the crowds and how excited they are because that's what it must have been (like) in Italia 90 when we got to the semis", he explained.

England's Jordan Henderson was a late substitution in Samara (Adam Davy/PA).

The waistcoat craze reached actor Hugh Grant, who tweeted on Saturday ahead of the game: "Like so many today am wearing a waistcoat. We're focused on Wednesday because we believe we can continue this great journey".

"The more of these tests we can come through, the better, not just for now, but moving forward".
