England can win World Cup, says 1966 hat-trick hero Hurst

England can win World Cup, says 1966 hat-trick hero Hurst

So famous were his crosses that a movie, "Bend It Like Beckham", was spun off it in 2002.

Ben, dressed in a full England strip with a medical tube up his nose, holds the cup aloft in front of a CT scanner in a film that has reduced many to tears and the hashtag #Bensworldcup is trending worldwide. "If you'd asked me before the tournament, I'd have been happy with this young team getting to the quarter-finals".

Spokesman Paddy Power said: "Harry Maguire and his formidable head is slowly becoming one of the unexpected heroes of the World Cup".

"I've met quite a few of those players and we know exactly how they're held and perhaps in the modern era that would be even crazier, [with] social media and everything else, the global thing is so much bigger".

After contributing to England's victory against Sweden, Southgate's charges now take on Croatia for a spot in the World Cup final.

But it's more than just England's crossing ability.

The Klamathon Fire more than doubled in size Friday night, roaring to 21,800 acres on the OR and California border. The 54,129-acre fire north of Durango is 50 percent contained as of Saturday night, according to fire officials .

"Personally, I spoke to the manager and some of my teammates, I didn't feel like I was playing as well as I should have been", Alli told reporters.

"They thought he was a big player, but was he going to be mobile enough?" Southgate also recruited Allan Russell, the team's attack coach, who has keenly studied set-play moves in American Football and the National Basketball Association. They've used decoy runners.

Mrs Hogg said they are off on holiday to Turkey. We are as focused as ever on that game, there has been no complacency, no talk of anything else other than Wednesday.

England played with patience, tenacity and perseverance, and Jordan Pickford picked up the Man of the Match accolade after some fantastic saves.

With just four teams remaining in the 2018 World Cup, the options are narrowing for who will win the Golden Boot, awarded to the highest-scoring player in the tournament.

Croatia eventually knocked the hosts out on penalties after the match finished 2-2 at the end of extra time.
