Sheffield has gone football crazy as the country counts down to England's first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.

The Three Lions take on Croatia in Moscow tonight (7pm) hoping to secure their first final appearance since Bobby Charlton et al ran to victory in 1966.

And, with three words on everybody's lips at the moment, Sheffield has certainly been getting into the spirit.

The O2 Academy on Arundel Gate has 'It's Coming Home' installed on its sign and staff at Sheffield railway station got people in the mood for the game by changing the messages on its information boards.

Southgate's men take on Croatia in their semi-final, with several players from our region set to be involved.

Sheffield-born Harry Maguire and Kyle Walker make up England's defence with Barnsley's John Stones, while fellow Steel City product Jamie Vardy is likely to be fit after missing the quarter-final win over Sweden.

Danny Rose was born in Doncaster, while Gary Cahill grew up in Dronfield.
