Stars With African Roots In World Cup Semi-Final

Stars With African Roots In World Cup Semi-Final

Rachel Williams, Store Manager at M&S Shrewsbury said: "With England making it through to the semi-finals of the World Cup, there's been an fantastic atmosphere in the town".

The bracelet was bought from Monica Vinader, who have since seen sales of the £115 item rise by 350 per cent.

"That's the most important thing, everyone comes together and we want to make them feel proud".

'Since Gareth Southgate was first spotted wearing his Linear Friendship Bracelet, Monica Vinader have seen sales of the collection soar'.

When France meet Belgium in the first semi-final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, as many as 24 players with African heritage will be involved.

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is fast and unsafe alongside Harry Kane", said Dalic ahead of Wednesday's clash in Moscow.

It might even end with an England-France final.

"We keep looking to break the barriers down".




"We've talked, touched briefly, certainly, on the team which won [in 1966]", he said.

Well it's not QUITE Southgate - but Southgate is REASONABLY equidistant between the two places that helped mould the England manager we now all love to sing reworked Atomic Kitten songs about.

"Our supporters and our country has had a long time suffering in terms of football. It is a special feeling and a privilege".

The retailer has been England's official suit sponsor since 2007, and Southgate has now made the waistcoat everyday attire for many.

But does this sense of "Football's coming home" spread to other nations?

Monaco keeper Subasic is understood to have missed training as a precaution, so as not to aggravate his problematic hamstring, while Lovren's unspecified injury is not thought to be serious enough to keep him out of the semi-final.

Councillor Judith Blake, Leader of Leeds City Council, said: "England's performances under the astute management and leadership of Gareth Southgate in this World Cup have been absolutely sensational and instilled enormous excitement and pride in people of all ages across the country and of course here in Leeds".
