For all the scepticism surrounding his 3-5-2 formation, Southgate's youthful squad, led by Golden Boot favourite Harry Kane, have flourished and demonstrated the advantageous ability to defend and attack in numbers, and it's this unified mentality that has them quietly confident of ending their 52-year wait for a return to the World Cup final.

"I said the same thing before the Colombia game - it's not me getting carried away".
He advised his players to stay humble though. Soon we will know what is the situation with our players that had some minor problems with injuries in the game on Saturday night.
The biggest question mark now surrounds the fitness of a team who have gone the full distance in their last two matches and had several players struggling with injuries against Russian Federation.
