Semi-final stampede 

More than two dozen football fans were hurt in a stampede in Nice when revellers let off firecrackers moments before the final whistle of France's win on Tuesday.
The city on the French Riviera remains on edge two years after an Islamist militant killed 86 people with a truck on Bastille Day.
'There was a crowd surge after firecrackers were detonated,' the city prefecture's Jean-Gabriel said, adding  27 people were injured. 
'Most of the injuries are glass cuts and bruising picked up when people fell.' 
'We know there is a big game ahead with the semi-final but we are feeling good and we're confident,' he told the BBC. 
'We just have to go again. We are enjoying it and we've got keep doing what we are doing and make the country proud.'
Coach Gareth Southgate said it was an 'incredible feeling' to lead the side into their first semi-final since 1990 after Dele Alli and Harry Maguire netted a goal each against Sweden.
The Three Lions play Croatia in the Luzhniki Stadium at 7pm and coach Gareth Southgate today told the BBC he was optimistic about England's future regardless of the outcome of the semi-final. 
'This team is nowhere near the level they're going to be capable of, partly because of their age, but also because they'll have more big-match experiences over the next few years with their clubs and with us,' he said. 
'We are excited about the future but we want to make the most of this opportunity as well.' 
Minutes after the team's latest win, man-of-the-match goalkeeper Jordan Pickford said England can create its own history and go all the way.
