10 July 2018

Maguire has been one of the best players for England at the World Cup in Russian Federation and has been superb at the back.

"I used to watch Beckham and (World Cup-winning Italy midfielder Andrea) Pirlo, players like this, over their careers - they have got a fantastic right foot on them and everyone knows that", Tripper said.

"It gives you goosebumps to see how happy they are and we want to keep on improving as a team and give them more moments like this".

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

If you do go on to win the tournament - and I hope you do - it would have an indescribable effect.

"So we'll just have to assess people as we go".

As the hysteria back home following Saturday's quarter-final win proves, so are the rest of us - and long may it continue, well, for at least another week.

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

The 16-minute video clip highlighted the Ogdens' stay in Russian Federation, with the two fans debunking the myths about the possible dangers they were told to expect.
