No absentees for England training ahead of World Cup semi-final

Kyle Walker says there is a family atmosphere within the England camp and that has played a big part in its march to the World Cup semi-finals.

He said: "Well, I think I've said this before, but I was not a renowned fashion icon throughout my playing career, so it's rather odd to feel that way now".

The World Cup final on Sunday, possibly the national side's first appearance in football's biggest match since 1966, will also be shown on open-air screens at the council-owned Talacre Park Gardens in Kentish Town and Russell Square, Bloomsbury.

I expect the teams to be evenly matched, giving viewers an exciting semi-final.

As the global soccer showpiece hosted by Russian Federation goes into the semi-final stage today, the Zambian legend says he would not be surprised if the final was to be contested by first-timers in Belgium and Croatia. Croatia will now face off with England, and France with Belgium, in the semifinals this week for a chance to lift the trophy on July 15, the last day of the tournament.

He said: "I'm not surprised that Croatia have identified Raheem as a key player".

The country selected 11 host cities to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup and they are Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara. They have a good squad depth and know what they need to do in order to win a game.

Players who pick up just two yellow cards between the group stage and the quarter-finals are given an automatic one-game suspension.

"When you go to a club overseas and play against one from your own country, you are part of the enemy", the France manager told the press. Hopefully we can get to the final.

Having played every game so far, Croatia will have to adjust to life without Vrsaljko and it could be a situation that England takes advantage of in preparations leading up to Wednesday's game. Now, I predict that the victor of the France-Belgium semi-final fixture will go on to win the final. I certainly think so.

Players who are sent off in the last-four will still be banned for the final, however.
