The Detroit Lions and the Three Lions: Drawing inspiration

The World Cup in Russian Federation has thrown up some stunning twists, turns and shocks, so it's perhaps fitting that its final game will feature the smallest nation to appear in the last stage of the tournament since 1950.

The Duke of Cambridge, a self-confessed soccer fan, has made sure to bask in the glory of his team's success in Russian Federation so far, taking to Twitter to congratulate the team after each of their wins at the World Cup.

From one group of Lions to another, this is exactly the type of breakthrough that fans in Detroit are patiently waiting and hoping for. "I think he just said he isn't as confident as everyone else about England winning tomorrow".

The Three Lions' failure to reach their first World Cup final in 52 years was greeted with desolation in the stadium in Moscow.

"I just feel so disappointed".

But many fans remained in good spirits and showed their support by singing a rendition of "I'm England 'till I die" after the game. Three times now we've been a goal down and have come back, and that really says a lot about our team spirit. But when you get to this point and play as well as we did in the first half, you want to take those opportunities in life.

"Fair enough they are a young team but they needed to turn up tonight".

The Senate on Wednesday voted to keep President Trump's authority in check when it comes to imposing "national security" tariffs. It was not a "commitment" or a payment owed to the USA , and not something that alliance members pledged to achieve immediately.

The draw at 90 minutes led to a heated extra time period with during which England's Dele Alli and Croatia's Ivan Rakitic almost came to blows.

"It was a long time ago, so not too many of us can remember that far back", said midfielder Jordan Henderson, born in 1990.

When Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic visited the team hotel in Moscow on Wednesday that 1998 game was on his mind - even before beating England.

He said: "Well, I think I've said this before, but I was not a renowned fashion icon throughout my playing career, so it's rather odd to feel that way now".
