Bolt heads to Russia for World Cup final

Bolt heads to Russia for World Cup final

His side were beaten 2-1 after extra-time in the World Cup semi-final, preventing England from reaching only their second major tournament final.

After a World Cup campaign which exceeded the expectations placed by many on his team, Southgate has now urged his players to make the most of their experiences in Russian Federation and aim to go better next time.

Perhaps the most interesting decision, though, relates to six-goal striker Harry Kane, who leads the Golden Boot race and was among eight changes when England's reserves lost 1-0 to Belgium's back-ups in the Group G finale last month. "This group will be stronger in two years' time, due to their age and because of the big-match experiences which we've now been through".

Useful facts: The third-place play-off will see Belgium take on England. Picking them up first and foremost, energising them for this game.

"We have high motivation to perform", said Southgate.

Nonetheless, he was touched by the reaction of England's supporters who stayed behind to applaud the players off the pitch in the Luzhniki Stadium, in contrast to being booed and whistled after losing to Iceland.

"We've set a level of working and performing that we want to maintain and take pride in".

"It is a special feeling we feel towards Croatia, although I don't think other players from other nations have less feeling, it makes us something else when we put on that special shirt".

Renard was also pictured wearing his favourite player socks in a scene made to look like a typical, family home. His favorite snacks, cereal, Barq's Root Beer and Doritos were placed on a side table next to him.

"The honest thing is it's not a game any team wants to play", Southgate admitted.

"There's a lot of motivation for us".

"Of course it's going to be a really hard task over the next 24 hours to get everyone mentally back to where we want them for a game like that".

Russian Federation qualified automatically for the World Cup finals as the host country and entered the tournament as the lowest-ranked team. We were 20 minutes from a World Cup Final.

"We've prepared everything to win the game even if its extra time or penalties. It's the same as if you were at a big club".

But the England side will be well-prepared for the contest, with its members regularly playing with or against the majority of the Belgium side in the Premier League.

"We all feel the pain of the defeat".

Asked about his in-game chatter with VIP guests, Infantino said: "When we are here we don't speak about politics, we speak about football". We'll be well prepared because this is a one in a lifetime opportunity.
