England make it on Venezuela's national newspaper's backpage, with the headline "Semifinal Set".

And per El Pais: "ENG have a GK who plays superbly with his feet + style that starts in their area, works thru midfield to a complete centre forward, Kane, who is no battering ram but a fine footballer. mix long + short balls with passing without losing their ENG identity".
