Bring it home: Loved ones send support to England’s stars ahead of semi
As England’s stars prepare for their World Cup semi-final with Croatia, their partners and families have been offering their support on social media.
The loved ones of England’s World Cup stars have wished them good luck as they prepare for the biggest game in a generation.
Ahead of the World Cup semi-final with Croatia in Moscow, several members of Leicester defender Harry Maguire’s large entourage offered words of encouragement – including girlfriend Fern Hawkins, who wrote on Instagram: “Today’s the day… Good luck babe.”
Only two years ago, Maguire was following England as a spectator at Euro 2016, and many of the friends who were with him then have been back in the stands to follow him this time around.

Maguire’s brother and sister – both of whom are among the group of friends and family backing him from the stands – also posted messages for the rising star.
Sister Daisy wrote: “Game Day. Bring it home H. Proud of you.”
And brother Laurence, who himself plays football for Chesterfield, posted: “World Cup semi final day, good luck @harrymaguire93.”
Meanwhile Kate Goodland, who is watching fiance Harry Kane at home with their young child, posted a picture of the England captain celebrating his first goal for the Three Lions, on his debut against Lithuania in 2015.
“This feels like yesterday.. what a long way you’ve come! Bring it home skip,” she said.
And Rebekah Vardy, who will be cheering husband Jamie at the Luzhniki Stadium with her children, posted a picture of herself kissing the Leicester striker, with the words: “Good Luck. I love you.”
Meanwhile pundit Chris Kamara posted a video of himself on a bus with several of the players’ family members, after he “nicked a lift to the stadium”. “Thanks Jordan’s Mum Mrs Pickford for getting me on,” he added.
