England have potential for much more, says Southgate

"It's coming home" makes up the chorus of the 1996 song "Three Lions", by The Lightning Seeds.

England have reached the semi-finals for the first time since 1990.

Just one player. That's Belgium's Thomas Meunier who was cautioned in the quarter-final against Brazil.

"To do what (Mbappe) is doing at his age, I have never seen that, apart from Messi", said Belgium's Nacer Chadli, scorer of their winning goal against Japan in the last 16.
