The boss will be watching the game in his flat in Blackburn, eating a salad!

The whole country believes, and so does Rovers boss Tony Mowbray, that football could indeed be coming home.

The boss has been watching the majority of the World Cup, including every England game, with Gareth Southgate's side gearing up for the semi-final clash later this evening.
 
And Mowbray is optimistic that Southgate's men, led by captain Harry Kane, can move one step further by beating Croatia tonight and heading into the World Cup Final.
 
“It’s really exciting for the whole country, but particularly for someone like me who loves football and it passionate about it, it’s brilliant," Tony said after Rovers' win against Hibernian at the weekend.
 
“I can see a youthful side and one that has a real team spirit, similar to the one we have here at Rovers. I see players caring for each other, working for each other, tackling for each other.
 
“Every successful team has a team spirit and it’s about how you react when you lose a game. Hopefully we can keep the momentum going and continue winning.
 
“We may play against better footballers but there won’t be a team with as good a spirit as England have. I’ll be watching it in my flat in Blackburn; we have training the next day so it’s a pretty lonely existence sometimes!"
 
So where will the boss be tuning into the game on Wednesday evening?
 
“I normally work until 7pm but this time I’ll get done at 6pm, get home, have a salad and watch the match!" he added.
 
“I listened to the quarter-final win against Sweden on the radio. I was driving up to Edinburgh to see my family who had come up on the train ahead of our game against Hibs.
 
“The radio kept going out of signal now and again but I heard the goals go in and ended up beeping my horn as I was driving down the M74!"
