England were a laughing stock after the European Championship two years ago - but not any more.
Now everyone knows who we are, and also how we play. I think manager Gareth Southgate has announced that with what he has done during this World Cup - and it has been brilliant to watch this team grow and grow.
Before the tournament started, I could not make a case for us winning it, I just wanted to see some signs of improvement. If everyone is honest, I don't think they ever felt that we could get to a semi-final - I certainly didn't.
But beat Croatia, and England are in the final. It is amazing just to be able to say that, and a great feeling to think about what could happen next.
We are buzzing here in Moscow and back home we know the country is going berserk - and rightly so - because we have got an amazing opportunity to win this tournament.
Is it really coming home? You've got to believe, haven't you? And everything does seem to be falling into place.
I am feeling the same way as a pundit and fan now as I did when I was an England player during Euro 96, when we reached the semi-finals and I was thinking: 'We can do this, we can go all the way.'
We fell agonisingly short then, but you just get a feeling it will be different this time.

As we progressed through each round at Euro 96, it felt as if we were unstoppable. It was a great feeling, and I think that is what has happened to this England team too.
