For England’s Adam Dixon, his experience at the World Cup is bittersweet – having experienced heartache at the semi final stage in both 2010 and 2014, finishing fourth on both occasions.

“I’ve missed out twice in semi finals now, finishing fourth both times, so I know how it feels and there are some scars there, he said.

Having drawn and lost in their first two games, Dixon and his teammates have beaten Ireland, New Zealand and Argentina to very much grow into an impressive run of form.

He said, “We’ve grown steadily in the tournament and I still feel like we’ve got more to give.

“We’ll be doing our homework on Belgium but if we can go out and play on the front foot I think we’ll be in a great position.

“We try to keep the focus on us, if we control the ball and dictate they have to worry about us. We’ll have a close eye on them but we want to look after ourselves and control the momentum.” he said.
