Former England right-back Gary Neville has posted an encouraging message to Gareth Southgate and the rest of the England team ahead of the Three Lions Euro 2020 semi-final versus Denmark.
After a 4-0 thumping of Ukraine in the previous round, Harry Kane and co are just one step away from cementing their place in their first ever European Championships final.
It would be just their second final in a major tournament following the success of 1966.
Now Neville, a former memeber of the England backroom staff, has taken to Instagram to send a message of support ahead of the Three Lions crucial fixture:
"History beckons for this team. To reach back-to-back Semi-Finals is incredible, but it’s not enough," said the 46-year-old on social media.
"You become nearly men! If we’d took that chance, if he hadn’t got injured, if the ref hadn’t got that one wrong.
"I do have genuine confidence in this manager and players that this time a semi-final isn't the end! To win any semi-final takes a great performance."

Winning competitions is something Neville excelled at during his playing career; the former Manchester United full-back won eight Premier League titles, two Champions League trophies as well as many others.
However, his club successes were not matched at international level with the 'golden generation' unable to clinch that first elusive title since 1966.
But with the current England side close to ending the 55 years of hurt, Neville has issued a warning to the current crop of players:
"This is a really good Denmark team and anything less than our best and/or luck will not be enough. The only danger is that the lads don’t see the danger.
"When you’re euphoric and on a wave in sport or life you can have that feeling it’s never going to end and something becomes your right.
"It doesn’t work like that."
