Having entered into a freakish wager with the Sweden ahead of a World Cup quarter-final, the Three Lions legend is ready to collect his winnings David Beckham is ready to collect the winnings of a weird England versus Sweden bet with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the LA Galaxy star heading to Wembley for fish and chips.
England face Croatia on Wednesday in the semi-final with a chance to face France or Belgium in Sunday's final in Moscow on the line.
Maguire is now an England hero, after his performance in Russian Federation, where he has been one of Gareth Southgate's star players.
"Croatia look a very good team, (they have) very good players in (Luka) Modric and (Ivan) Rakitic, they look a unsafe side". I think everyone is so close in there. So to be here now, leading this team out, I'm so proud.
"It's a great opportunity", the England defender said.
"I said at the start of this that over this summer, this is our family".
"We've played well, we've played well in the games".
"Now of course that is unbelievable, but I think it's time we knock it off the number one spot with Three Lions".
Five days ago we told you how there was a petition to make Monday July 16th a bank holiday if England end 52 years of hurt and win the World Cup for the second time.
Even after being drawn in a favourable group this time around, few thought they would still be active in the final week of the World Cup but Hurst believes they could be crowned champions.
As the hysteria back home following Saturday's quarter-final win proves, so are the rest of us - and long may it continue, well, for at least another week.
"If we get to the final or if we don't get to the final then we're one day short, you know it has been an absolute pleasure of an experience to share not just with the players but the staff, even the media staff and you guys as well".
"And seeing the fans back home on social media has been incredible". We go out and we download and we stream Three Lions, and you know why, because it's coming home.
"The progress of the England team in the world cup is very exciting for people across the country".
