As England prepare for their World Cup semi-final against Croatia tonight, fans will be looking for an omen that could point towards a first World Cup final since 1966.

You may think it's all down to skill and the players on the pitch - but some fans believe the colour of the kit could influence the outcome.

That's because England's "lucky" red shirt is so closely associated with their one and (so far) only World Cup success in 1966 and they currently have an impressive 17 game undefeated streak in red.

  But in tonight’s semi-final with Croatia, the Three Lions will be playing in all white - despite being the designated "away" team.

  Don’t fret!.. England do have a history of playing in white at the World Cup semi-final stage: they did so in 1966

  So you’re thinking…. what’s that got to do with the colour of my front door?

  Well in Feng Shui, a red door means “Welcome.” Actually, it means something about welcoming energy. Since I’m not into all that energy and oo-la-la stuff, I just choose to think     that a red front door means “Hey! Welcome to our home! Come on in and eat!”

  In traditional America, if someone saw a red front door, they would know it was a welcome place to stay the night and eat. Better than a “Vacant” sign

  A red door means “protection.”  This is a Biblical meaning. In the Old Testament, the Hebrew children were instructed to rub blood on their doorposts so that the                   Angel of Death would pass over their home. A home with red on the door was protected.

And finally…. and this first started in Scotland. When someone paid off their mortgage, they would then paint the front door red. It was an announcement to the world “Hey! We’re debt free!” 

Come on England…let’s bring the cup home again!
