Football fans in Bournemouth are putting their faith in Gareth Southgate's side to take the Three Lions to their first World Cup final since 1966.
If Southgate's young side overcome Russian Federation tonight they will face France in the World Cup final next Sunday in Moscow, their first final since 1966. "What a great way therefore to show our support by ensuring that some of our recognisable civic buildings and the famous Black Prince statue on City Square, are now displaying their England colours with great pride!"More news: Chelsea eye Schmeichel as potential Courtois replacement
Stan Chattersley, who has lived in Bournemouth for 15 years, admitted he would not be supporting England.
"Sometimes I think these things are written and the way this tournament has opened up for England, is one of the reasons it feels like this is their time".
Steve, who was at the 1982, 1990 and 1998 World Cups as a member of the media, picks up the story: "Twenty years ago in 1998 I got involved with Statto (Angus Loughran) from (Frank) Skinner and (David) Baddiel's Fantasy Football, which was all the rage at that time", he said.

England's run to the last four, where they will face Croatia, has come as a huge surprise given Southgate's relative lack of experience in management and the fact the team lost to Iceland in the last 16 of EURO 2016. "I've been jokingly saying that football's coming home, but now there's no reason why we can't win it".
"I just have a feeling that England will find a way to win".
"They are proud to wear the shirt".
