England hopes to make amends for Iceland defeat
July 9, 2018 5:01 pm
Midfielder Eric Dier believes England’s run to the World Cup semi-finals is healing the scars of their humiliating Euro 2016 exit to Iceland – but insists their campaign in Russia cannot be hailed a success yet.
Dier was in Roy Hodgson’s team that went out to minnows Iceland in the last 16 in France and has been involved as Gareth Southgate’s squad prepare to face Croatia for the semifinal on Thursday.
As England stand only 90 minutes away from their first World Cup final since 1966, Dier says after the Iceland game they knew things needed to change and there have been a lot of changes since that moment.
They take on Croatia at 6am on Thursday and you can watch it live on FBC TV.
