Kieran Trippier says the support and reaction from fans to England's World Cup campaign at home and in Russian Federation continues to inspire the Three Lions squad.

The Euro '96 anthem managed to topple Drake from the top spot, clocking up over one million streams in just one day.

Although Croatia went on to suffer an agonising 2-1 defeat to host nation France in the semi-finals, they beat the Netherlands 2-1 in the third-place playoff.

England World Cup hero Kieran Trippier's father says he wants his son to be awarded the freedom of Bury if he lifts the trophy on Sunday.

Dele Alli has not suffered any recurrence of his thigh problem but Southgate compared the dressing room after Tuesday's match to a scene from M.A.S.H and the England manager knows from experience that, at this stage of the competition, there is a danger of players declaring themselves fit when they are patently not.

Asked how he would feel seeing his son running around the stadium with the World Cup next weekend if England make it and win, he said: 'I think I'll have a heart attack or something like that.

"The only team I would have feared playing against is Brazil", he said.

Robert Prosinecki, a member of the 1998 squad, said: "I would so much like that they be better than us".

Even after being drawn in a favourable group this time around, few thought they would still be active in the final week of the World Cup but Hurst believes they could be crowned champions.

"(We hoped we would have) a long month together, which we have done. "We have seen the reaction to the squad and it has been unbelievable and we hopefully have many more great memories to come".

He said the England and Spurs defender the will treat the World Cup semi-final and any eventual final like a normal game.
