England haven’t been this far at a World Cup for 28 years.

It is uncharted territory for Gareth Southgate and his squad, 17 of whom were not even born when Bobby Robson’s side took on West Germany in Turin on 4 July, 1990.

Following the relatively stress-free 2-0 quarter-final win over Sweden and with no fresh injury worries or suspensions, the smart money would be on Southgate selecting the same XI for Wednesday’s last-four tie with Croatia.

But you may feel differently.

Is it time to unleash Marcus Rashford? Do you feel we need some extra steel in midfield to combat the likes of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic?
