Deschamps relishes chance to overcome Euro 2016 pain at World Cup

Teddy Sheringham celebrates with team=mates after scoring in the 4-1 win over Holland during Euro 96

Teddy Sheringham celebrates with team=mates after scoring in the 4-1 win over Holland during Euro 96

His players' club list reads like a who's-who of European elite players, with Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic at Real Madrid, Ivan Rakitic at Spanish rivals Barcelona, forward Mario Mandzukic at Italian champions Juventus, and Dejan Lovren at Liverpool among others.

"I don't know to what extent you see the level of celebrations in Croatia".

But with the World Cup semi-finals in NATO's traditional adversary Russian Federation made up exclusively of members of the western military alliance, the heads of state and government in Brussels were able to turn to football to lighten the atmosphere.

England has had an wonderful run at the tournament and they reached the semi-finals for the third time in their history and the first time since 1990.

As the game went to extra time, and then penalties, the beers kept flowing and Mandzukic's bar tab sailed past 3000 pounds ($5325), according to Croatian news site 24Sata who said the 32-year-old outlaid 25,000 kuna toward the bill.

Now, finally, there is a team ready to join them in Croatian football's pantheon of heroes.

"I don't think England could go on to win the World Cup, I think France and Belgium have got too much".

Borjas instead called 911 and took a picture of the woman, which she shared with police and put on social media. Borjas saw the woman push the old man and hit him with a block of cement, reported Los Angeles Times .

Southgate was a key player for England at Euro 96 but saw his penalty saved in the shoot-out at the end of the semi-final against Germany which saw them knocked out.

Soon after the boys came home with their tail between their legs, the famous pizza chain released an advert which played on Southgate's "miss" in a big way.

"We have already made several pieces of history".

Rafa Benitez says England have a "great chance" of winning the World Cup for the first time since 1966. "We as players look at ourselves first...we never performed....but sometimes you have to be allowed to perform!" We want players at 100 per cent fit.

For so many years, being called up to play for England was an inconvenience to Premier League footballers, not an honour or duty.

"I've been jokingly saying that football's coming home, but now there's no reason why we can't win it".
