England's impressive group-stage display was followed by a shoot-out triumph against Colombia and surprisingly comfortable quarter-final win against Sweden, propelling the country to a first World Cup semi-final since 1990.

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

All Gareth Southgate's team have to do now is see off Croatia and then beat either France or Belgium in the final.

'They [Croatia] have got some fantastic players.

"(But) where we are today, I would say, categorically, quite clearly, we can win it, without a shadow of doubt.

England have managed to improve as a national squad under Gareth Southgate, who is leading the team in their first global tournament since the 2016 European Championship, where former manager Roy Hodgson's contract ended following a 2-1 loss to Iceland.

Mr Tripper, who has the England St George flag hoisted on a pole outside his Bury home with "Tripper" emblazoned on it, said after seeing his son for the first time in Russian Federation in the quarter final, his emotions were running high.

"They were sending them to their mums, dads and grandparents who wouldn't believe them when they said how similar I looked!"

"That's the most important thing, everyone comes together and we want to make them feel proud".

"It's felt like a good holiday we've been on - and we're enjoying every moment of it", said the Manchester United left wing-back.

"One hundred per cent I think you can see that in the way that we play, everybody the whole 23, willing to put everything aside, whatever their personal interests might be, purely for the team to be successful", he said.

"We can't wait to get going now against Croatia", he added.

"You obviously have got your family at home and the kids that you need to keep in touch with, keep checking in or the missus might go mad".

"Recovery is key" was the message which had been emblazoned across England's social media outlets on Sunday.
