Van der Sar backs Belgium for World Cup glory

"Following calls from local people caught up in the spirit of England's performance in the World Cup, the communications team reacted to requests to rename Southgate Street by mocking up a Photoshop image superimposing Gareth above the existing street sign".

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.

Stores have pushed waistcoat sales as England advanced to a World Cup semifinal clash against Croatia in Moscow tomorrow morning, with people taken by Southgate's style of wearing a vest without his suit jacket, AP reports.

England had not reached the final four of the World Cup in 28 years, but are now just two games away from winning only their second major title.

The summer party rolls on and we don't want it to stop.

Southgate was a member of Venables' team and he famously missed a penalty kick in the Uefa Euro 1996 semi-final against Germany. "It's because it's coming home".
