The JOE World Cup Minipod #17 featuring Gareth Southgate's semi-final masterplan, Mother Russia's anguish and Harry Maguire
No, maybe it really is coming home.
England might have been in the better half of the draw, but nobody imagined them reaching the semi-final of the World Cup with such ease.
But that's where this World Cup is now and as England rejoices in the unlikely dull victory against a brutal Sweden team, it's time to consider how they have managed it.
They still have to play a decent side and Croatia will offer a different challenge, but are England now so charged with the possibilities of what they can achieve that nobody will be able to stop them?
On the latest episode of JOE's World Cup Minipod, Paddy McKenna and Dion Fanning are joined by Nooruddean Choudry to discuss England and where it will all end.
- Why is this World Cup like 80s Brat Pack movie The Breakfast Club?
- Can Gareth Southgate do anything he wants?
- Where did it all go wrong for Russia?
