Gareth Southgate's England side have exceeded all expectations in Russian Federation this summer with the Three Lions preparing to face Croatia tonight, in, what will be just the third World Cup semi-final in their history.
Mia Šetula, a Croatian student at Bournemouth University, admitted she will be cheering for England's opponents tonight.
M&S are the official tailor of the England national team and that has seen Three Lions squad wear their suits collection, as well as Southgate looking dapper in their attire on the touchline throughout the World Cup.
However, former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has revealed that he was anxious about about how three England players would cope going into the tournament.
She said: "I'm hoping Croatia can reach the final but I'm expecting a really intense game".
Regardless of what happens this evening, and in Sunday's final if you dare to dream, the story of Southgate's latest World Cup is sure to be well documented in the weeks, months and years after the tournament ends.
Stan Chattersley, who has lived in Bournemouth for 15 years, admitted he would not be supporting England.
"I don't think England could go on to win the World Cup, I think France and Belgium have got too much".
"Croatia, I think, will stay in a lower block and will try to find solutions on the counter-attack because they have very fast players with [Andrej] Kramaric, [Ante] Rebic and also [Mario] Mandzukic, who is a fighter, and also maybe with the individual brilliance from Modric and Rakitic".
Incredible scenes have filled the town centre after the team progressed through the competition reaching the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years. "I've been jokingly saying that football's coming home, but now there's no reason why we can't win it".
