Harry Maguire has been speaking about the possibility of England going all the way in Qatar.
The Three Lions host defending champions France on Saturday in the quarter-finals.
The defender has explained why he and his teammates feel believe they can lift the trophy on December 18.
Maguire: “I think we really believe that it is possible”
The Manchester United captain claims that there is a genuine belief that England can win the World Cup.
In 2018, the Three Lions made it to the semi-finals of the World Cup and the players were just happy to be there.
Bu now, the mentality has changed and the focus is on becoming world champions.
Maguire said: “I think that’s the one thing I’d say that’s a lot different from the 2018 squad to this squad - I think we really believe that it is possible.
“I played in 2018 and we got to the semi-final and I think a lot of the lads were happy. You were happy to be part of the semi-final.
“You know that whatever happened in that semi-final that you’d go home and be classed as a hero and everyone would be patting you on the back.
“I think now there’s a belief that we’ve got to win this tournament. It is a good change in the mentality.
“Of course, we know how tough it is going to be. I think there are probably five or six teams with the same belief.
“But in 2018, we probably weren’t one of those teams that had that belief. Now there’s five or six who have that belief and we’re one of them.”
