Modric reveals Croatia biggest concern ahead of England clash

"For England to beat Croatia and reach the World Cup final, they must stop the best midfielder in the world", Jenas told BBC Sport.

Wimbledon chiefs insisted again Monday that the men's final will start at its traditional time despite it clashing with a potential England World Cup triumph.

However, the team's unexpected run came to an end at the hands of Croatia but not before dragging the game to penalties on Saturday. Especially in Croatia, where after nerve-breaking game on Saturday with Russian Federation, everybody seems to follow football news.

However, Corluka feels England's willingness to attack should allow Croatia more room to express themselves.

In contrast, there is only one Champions League victor in the England squad, Chelsea's Gary Cahill who is their second-choice central defender.

"What they did was impressive but we want to keep writing our own history and enjoy what we are doing which is very positive", he added. Are they the best team at the tournament? Before they didn't have any pressure.

He hopes England will be more suited to their style of play, but added that recovering from two extended games will be hard.

"Of course they have been a massive thing for us and other teams through the whole of the World Cup", Young said on Monday.

A great way to get in on the action is to bet and see if your predictions hold up.

In its previous Last 16 match, Russian Federation beat Spain 4-3 on penalties. Steve McClaren was dismissed as manager the following day. I think we can do it.

The 31-year-old Lloris describes the Belgium lineup as "quite simply, the most complete side in the tournament, in all aspects of the game". "More like that please".

Croatia have won two penalty shootouts on their way to the semis this year - their first since they lost to eventual winners France back in 1998, which was their maiden participation in the World Cup after their independence. In ourselves we thought we could do a lot, but not this. Last year, he made a 20,000 euros donation to firefighters in Dalmatia so that they received new equipment to help them tackle wildfires that spread in and around Split. That is something special in our country. Alexander Samedov, who said earlier he would no longer play for the national team, stressed he was proud to be member of the team.

May received the number 10 jersey of Croatia captain Luka Modric.

He replied: "We are not. Hopefully it will be us".
