England Have Been Warming Up With Rubber Chickens Ahead Of Croatia

Here is a look at the semi-finals and what to watch out for. Along with Ivan Rakitic, the pair are lynchpins in the team's most deadly territory, and defender Harry Maguire identified them as players which England's defenders will also have to keep an eye on.

He nailed the semi-finals.

.

Raphaël Varane headed France on their way to a 2-0 win over Uruguay from a free kick, while Fernandinho deflected a cross from a corner into his own net to put his Brazil side behind in their eventual 2-1 defeat at the hands of Belgium.

But having seen Croatia hold off Argentina superstar Lionel Messi and Denmark talisman Eriksen, conceding once in those two games, Dalic is optimistic they can do the same against Kane.

Federation Internationale de Football Association may as well give them the World Cup now, being honest.

France, looking for their second World Cup triumph following their victory at home in 1998, will play a unsafe Belgium side in Tuesday's first semi-final.

Rockets targeting Anthony after losing Mbah a Moute
The 31-year-old forward played in 61 regular season games, averaging 7.5 points and at least one steal a game. Mbah a Moute spent the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons with the Clippers before joining the Rockets last season.

David Beckham and Zlatan Ibrahimovic agree World Cup wager
Walker is also confident that Raheem Sterling will also see his hard work rewarded. We've been playing well, we're learning and we're all enjoying it.

The last match between the two teams took place in 2015 with Belgium running out 4-3 winners with two Marouane Fellaini goals in an exciting friendly in Paris. With his absence, coach Martinez may have to change his formation.

As England won the quarterfinal match against Sweden on Saturday, the Three Lions fans took their celebrations too far and barged into an IKEA store in London and trashed the furniture while singing their World Cup anthem, "It's coming home".

Subasic suffered a tight hamstring towards the end of Croatia's quarter-final win over hosts Russian Federation and was unable to take goal-kicks before the tie went to penalties. They should beat Croatia.

England emerged Champions in the 1966 edition of the World Cup which they hosted and have played in only one semi-final appearance in 14 tournaments.

Harry Kane would have to be more clinical in front of goal in order to add to his tally of six goals and possibly emerge as the victor of the famed Golden Boot in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Overall, 42% of goals in the World Cup have come from set plays or penalties, beating the previous record of 36% from the 1998 World Cup.
