  • World Cup: England fans 'dare to dream' after win over Sweden

For a country bitterly divided by the Brexit referendum as well as by age-old regional and class divides, the national team's journey to the World Cup semi-finals has been a welcome relief from political arguments and rancour.

"We all agree it has been out best World Cup for decades", he said: "The long-distance train journeys, the lack of sleep, the heat and discomfort have been worthwhile".

"Gareth Southgate has re-energised English football, as anyone who's been to a Walkabout to watch a match will tell you!"

"So we'll just have to assess people as we go".

England, basking in a long summer heatwave, is starting to believe the team can reach their first final since 1966 after the young side saw off Sweden 2-0 in the quarter-finals on Saturday.

"No. Obviously during Euro 96 it was a great time being an England player but you never thought that Gareth would go on to do what he's doing now", he said.

Iranian oil minister calls Trump's order to OPEC insulting
OPEC together with a group of non-OPEC producers led by Russian Federation started to withhold output in 2017 to prop up prices. Seems like this is sort of related to Trump tweets", said Stewart Glickman, energy equity analyst at CFRA Research in NY .

Subasic, who plays for Monaco in the French league, has been Croatia's hero in successive penalty-shootout wins in the knockout stage, saving four spot kicks in total. Sweden managed to survive a group with Germany, Mexico and South Korea, only to lose to Germany in the final seconds of the game.
