Nigerian descent Dele Alli on bringing the nation together

"I want to win the World Cup - the Ballon d'Or is not my problem".

Following their affable coach's example, as well as being the most exciting team England team for some time on the field, they are also the most likeable. "That's why I don't think the performance came down to individuals". "We know how much of a privilege it is to be here".

Center back Samuel Umtiti put France on the board in the 51st minute with a header off of a corner, and the team managed to hold that narrow lead for the last 40 minutes and change. "They are young, but there is character, and mentality - it was tough for them against this Belgium side". "I hope it's going to be different this time, I hope we will able to bring the World Cup back to France".

Speaking to the Guardian newspaper, Alli said he was "excited, not nervous" about the chance to help take England to their first World Cup finals appearance since they won the tournament in 1966, reports Xinhua news agency.

"It is a childhood dream - we are proud to share it with all of our friends, and the French people", the Chelsea man told TF1.

But he soon toughened up and won lots of three Premier League titles, one FA Cup and a Champions League title in 2008. The Portugal global added: "They have been an absolutely wonderful nine years".

"We've strived to be as good as we could be at an global level and it's taken us two years to get there". We gave everything we have got. "We have seen the reaction to the squad and it has been unbelievable and we hopefully have many more great memories to come".

"But equally, we're always looking at how we can hurt them, what are the areas we can exploit in the way they play?"

Roberto Martinez bemoaned the fact the semi-final had been decided on a set-piece, however the Atletico forward believes it's an important part of Les Bleus' gameplan. We worked hard defensively. The support from all the fans in Russian Federation and back home has been unbelievable.

"He can be unsafe for us but we are going to try and stop him from playing".

I had memories (mainly of the sticker album and song, rather than the matches) of Spain '82, but Mexico '86 was the first World Cup I'd really embraced.
