"We did have a north v south game at The Grove - what I can remember is we had a dodgy ref who was southern in Steve (Holland), which didn't help the northerners", the Sheffield-born defender told Sky News Radio. "All my mates think it's amusing, but I have had a few people messaging me about it - someone even called me scum", he told a local newspaper.

"It's going to be hard - the semi-final at a World Cup, it's not going to be an easy game - but it's a game we feel we're ready for".

"So we have shown character, we've shown belief and I think that's what is going to get us over the line in this game".

England captain Harry Kane is adamant the Three Lions can rewrite the history books by going all the way and winning the World Cup in Russian Federation.

He said: "If I didn't say Harry was my favourite England player, I would be a fool".

In England's class of 2018, free kicks, corners and wide crosses are mostly provided by England's wing backs, Young and Kieran Trippier, and they are proving tough to defend.

Only a few months ago, Young and Trippier were far from sure of getting into England's World Cup squad, never mind the starting team. Winning teams are consistent teams in terms of lineups and I don't think the boys will have been tested too much physically by Sweden.

They've been through a lot. "But it doesn't feel too bad, so hopefully it'll be fine". "They're very unsafe on set-pieces". I've played with Luka (Modric ) and, for me, he is one of the best midfielders in the world by far.

England's group-stage progress was followed by a shoot-out triumph over Colombia and a surprisingly comfortable quarter-final win against Sweden, propelling the country to a first World Cup semi-final since 1990.

Another side-effect was the necessity for wing backs, and who better than the energetic Young and Trippier?

Of course, this could just be the start for this England team, like 2006 was for Germany.

'They [Croatia] have got some fantastic players. It's what the players are doing when the ball goes into the area.

"But if they play three up top, it's not wise".

Any mention of England's World Cup victory in 1966 sets many Scots' teeth on edge. Maybe we thought they had everything under control but no, it is not that simple.
