A look at what's ahead in the World Cup

Harry Kane of England walks to the penalty spot to take the first penalty of the shoot out during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Round of 16 match between Colombia and England at Spartak

If you follow football (or "soccer" as it's known in North America) then you'll no doubt be tuned into the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which is now taking place in Russian Federation.

If the final four games of this year's World Cup are anything like the last 60, it should be quite an exciting finish.

If Southgate's young side overcome Russian Federation tonight they will face France in the World Cup final next Sunday in Moscow, their first final since 1966. They have a good squad depth and know what they need to do in order to win a game. The French were powered by a determined and organised performance. By no means are they assured a spot, as world No. 7 France, who oddsmakers are favouring, stand in their way.

Most of their star forwards were marked out of the game while goalkeeper Hugo Lloris made some fine stops when called upon.

"I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly", said Southgate.

Belgium's 23-match unbeaten streak - including five in this World cup - can be attributed to the tactical nuances of Roberto Martinez, who was unceremoniously sacked by Everton in May 2016.

"I've got a amusing feeling that the momentum is so good, and, you know, especially now that we're all going to turn up with special Gareth waistcoats, and that can only help can't it", said fan Lee Walkup, 50.

A clip has emerged, too, of a poignant moment from the life of the gaffer from an early TV documentary entitled "Gazza's Tears: The Night That Changed Football". "We know we have some unbelievable players and a great manager and everyone is clear on what we want to do". We're tired but there can be no excuses: we've got to the semi-final, we're here to enjoy ourselves and give our all, we do not want to say we're worn out or exhausted.
