England aim to join France in World Cup final

Scott Carson looks stunned after his early error

Croatia and England meet in the World Cup semifinals, with each looking to continue what's been a magical run in Russian Federation.

England meet Croatia in the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup on Wednesday evening as Gareth Southgate's young side look to make history in Moscow.

The number of signatories to the petition, on the United Kingdom government and Parliament website, means it will be considered for debate in the House of Commons.

"We will do everything to recover and I'm sure we will find energy for England".

What's your prediction for England's semi-final vs Croatia?

Croatia relied on penalty shootouts to advance in their round of 16 tie with Denmark, as well as their quarter-final date with Russian Federation, which suggests that they have the collective concentration to last 120 minutes, as well as the cool-headedness to maintain composure during penalties. We will focus in the next few days to recover as much as possible.

"Of course, it's not the same if you play two 90-minute matches and two 120-minute matches, but I still believe we have had ample time to recover and we are professional enough to know who needs what with what kind of recovery".

The head of Peshawar city police also informed media representatives that some 8 kilograms of explosives were used in the attack. His body was later shifted to Bilour House where ANP workers gathered in great numbers to pay respect to their deceased leader.

"Finals have to be won because we have still not got over the one we lost two years ago", he said. "It is very near and we will leave our last drop of sweat on the pitch to achieve our goal", he said.

The fact that this particular England team is the one to reach the semi-finals and not the so-called "Golden Generation" of Lampard/Beckham/Gerrard/Rooney/Scholes etc.is, perhaps, an intriguing one for England fans but suggests that this group is far more of a unit than previous incarnations of the Three Lions.

"Every honor to Kane, he scored six goals, but we managed to stop (Lionel) Messi (of Argentina) and (Christian) Eriksen (of Denmark), and I hope we will also stop Kane as well", Dalic said. (Courtesy of Betfair) Can England deal with Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic? "We´ll repeat that this Sunday", said one supporter, Sebastien, as the crowd chanted: "We´re in the final!"

Modric said: "We expect a very hard, tight and demanding match against England".

France impressively contained Belgium in a disciplined performance that was decided by another setpiece goal - a feature of this World Cup - as Barcelona defender Umtiti outjumped the defence to glance the ball past ´keeper Thibaut Courtois.

Fatigue could be an issue for Croatia as the game wears on, given they have gone to extra time and penalties in both knockout games in Russian Federation, although they also won both shootouts.
