He predicts England will win 2-1 but only after extra-time, that would be a tough one to experience and a similarly comfortable 2-0 victory, like the one over Sweden, would be much more preferable.

Two of these have never won one; let alone even made a World Cup final - will either of Belgium or Croatia make history?

Forget the cutbacks across the goal amidst a crowded penalty area or the clever runs behind the defence to create goalscoring opportunities, Sterling's tactical intelligence makes him the ideal candidate for the situations when England want to press high up the field - whether he puts the finishing touch himself or selflessly sets up a teammate, Sterling threatens to produce moments of magic every time he receives the ball and that is a quality to be heralded, not ridiculed.

Fellow fan Alex Klein, 28, added: "If we win, if we beat Croatia I'll, I'll probably cry, because to see England in a World Cup final is, is like a dream, a lifelong dream".

"I just have a feeling that England will find a way to win".
