As most England fans get ready to watch the nation’s huge semi-final against Croatia tomorrow in pubs across the county or at home with friends and family, one lucky England fan is preparing himself for the trip back to Russia.

Ian Odgers has already been to Russia for the World Cup and saw England’s victory over Colombia via a penalty shoot out before travelling back home and missing the quarter-final against Sweden.

But Ian isn’t done yet and says it was never an option to miss the semi-final and hopefully, the final.

He said: “I can’t wait, I just wish it was now. I have all these people messaging me and asking me to get them something from the game.

“I said to my wife on Sunday, imagine this time next week I could be watching England in a World Cup final. It’s surreal.

“After the Iceland game at Euro 2016, everyone was saying to me why do you bother? This makes it all worthwhile.”
