Raheem Sterling criticism is "disgusting", says Gary Neville

He actually mentioned Sterling a second time, praising his pace and power, and said he and his coaching team would be analysing England more closing over the next two days and passing that information on to his players.

Raheem Sterling paid tribute to England's fans after helping the team reach a "dream" World Cup semi-final.

Speaking to reporters in Moscow a day after his side's dramatic quarter-final win over hosts Russia, Dalic was asked about England's strengths and weaknesses.

The 23-year-old's performances at the World Cup in Russian Federation have divided football fans.

"Until football is finished I will try and stay in as much as I can, watch TV and no one can say nothing".

"They dealt with Sweden relatively easily so we know they are going to be a hard opponent and we respect them", he said. "I think he's had a fantastic tournament so far and hopefully that can continue in the next week".

"We're really happy with where we're at but we believe we can continue this great journey". We knew that we could only make amends for that, and that is what we have been trying to do.

"If he carries on running at teams and tying defenders up in knots, we will reap the benefits".

Sterling played a key role as Gareth Southgate's men overcame Sweden 2-0 in Samara to set up a semi-final against Croatia - their first since 1990.

It starts with Luka Modric in midfield, who is in contention to win the Golden Ball award.
