England are in the last four of a major tournament for the first time since Euro ´96, when Southgate himself missed a penalty in a shootout defeat against Germany.

"I've been dreaming for about a month", Backaert, who works in logistics, said at an outdoor screening in Brussels.

"We´re going into a semi-final but it just seems like it´s the next step on the journey", Southgate said. France, Belgium, Croatia and England will play in the semifinals to be recognized as the planet's best national soccer team.

"We're all behind one flag, we're all behind one team. We´ll repeat that this Sunday", said one supporter, Sebastien, as the crowd chanted: "We´re in the final!"
