England full-back Kieran Trippier admits that the level of support the team has inspired during their run to the World Cup semi-finals has given him "goosebumps".

England will face Croatia in the final four, with a chance to reach a first World Cup final since 1966 at stake.

"Obviously we are chuffed with the result this afternoon but there is absolutely no excuse to vandalise emergency service vehicles by jumping on them", they said on Twitter.

Now Millwall Supporters' Club want to raise £5,000 to help fix the emergency response vehicle and get it back on the road.

Almost 20 million viewers tuned in for the win over Sweden and social media is awash with videos of excited fans watching on big screens in bars and parks, fanatically celebrating every England goal.

"These are special moments for our fans and they fully deserve it".

"We want to make our own history and do great things so to see all the fans and the videos and how emotional it is to them, we want to just keep going and making them celebrate even more".

Can England's crucial player take them to a World Cup title?

With both of Croatia's knockout games heading to the spot already, there's a high probability that Wednesday's semi-final could go the distance, but England need not fear because Pickford has a plan.

"It feels wonderful. Growing up and watching England, to be a part of it with the lads.it is an incredible achievement form everyone here and we can't wait to get going against Croatia", he told England's official YouTube channel. At the beginning of working together with the lads and trying to sell them the vision of what's possible, what we're looking to achieve in the long-term.
