How to Watch England vs. Croatia

Meanwhile, if England beat Croatia on Wednesday, Gareth Southgate's side will face France in Sunday's final.

Croatia topped a tough group, winning all three games. England are favourites at $2.4 compared to Croatia's 3.65.

Modric started that match at Wembley and remains integral to Croatia's game 11 years later, the captain having been widely hailed as one of the best players at the finals in Russian Federation. It's going to be a hard task for all of us.

Maybe that's why this squad seems unburdened by the weight of history or perhaps it was the complete lack of expectation of them going into the tournament - how else can you explain an England team that have come through a penalty shoot-out scare?

"But if we're ready to give our all on the pitch like we did when we played Argentina, if we will be compact, then I don't believe that there will be problems". "Like one heart, one soul".

"They have a lot of quality, they play well, well organised and a physically strong, but we are also aware of our quality".

"This is an incredible result for a small country like Croatia".

Prince William, the president of the FA, said: "A new generation is enjoying the magic of this World Cup run". The center-back will be key to limiting England's threat from set pieces and will be a useful weapon in the opposition box, too.

Pundit Paul Merson has told the Daily Star that he thinks Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren won't have slept well thinking about having to play against Harry Kane tonight.

England are in the last four of the World Cup for the first time since losing to Germany on penalties in 1990. Even Ashley Young, the oldest of England's players, was a couple of days off his fifth birthday.

Their opponents can count on Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic, and Southgate clearly respects the talent in the Croatian ranks. - Mario Mandzukic assisted Andrej Kramaric's goal against Russian Federation in the quarterfinal - he has been involved in four goals at the World Cup finals for Croatia (3 goals, 1 assist), with only Davor Suker involved in more (6).

Kane is now leading the race for the World Cup Golden Boot with six goals in the tournament so far.

Victoria Lopyreva, an official ambassador for the World Cup and a former Miss Russia, called on Britons on Monday to come to Moscow for the match.
