Theresa May

The right-back was taken off during extra time against Russian Federation on Saturday after feeling discomfort in his knee and was initially ruled out of the upcoming match against the Three Lions by English and Spanish press. The one thing missing for this French squad is an worldwide title.

We'll have to see how the teams look when starting lineups post, but for a second time this cup, Belgium is the favorite against England and should continue to be, unless Belgium rests its stars and England players its big boys. The "golden generation" at the dawn of the 20th century consisted of players like Patrice Viera, Theirry Henry, Robert Pires, Emmanuel Petit and of course Zinedine Zidane. "First time in the final ever for Croatia, now we're going to go all the way (to win the World Cup)". They have not advanced to the Final since 1966, when they won it all.

Ian Broudie and co will treat fans to a live performance of their iconic football anthem before England's World Cup game. They have reached 2 finals: in 2006 Fifa World Cup and 2016 Euro Cup.

Both teams went on strong offensives testing each other from the onset of the match, but it was England to open the score by England's defender Kieran Trippier going just six minutes into the game.

On that occasion, the Uruguayans defeated a heavily-fancied Brazil team 2-1 at the Maracana in the final second-stage group game, which effectively served as the tournament's final. They're showing the game upstairs, but it's the usual weekday comedy night in the basement.


Zinedine Zidane being sent off in 2006 World Cup final. France had taken the lead with a brilliant Zidane penalty in the 10th minute which was equalised by a headed goal from Materazzi in the 19th minute.

"It's an wonderful feeling but we already lost the final two years ago and that's why we feel [the need] to keep our feet on the floor", Lloris said. The destiny to win the World Cup.

"In the changing room, [coach] Didier Deschamps was happy".

After a dramatic win on penalties against hosts Russia, Croatia has repeated the success of the 1998 team which reached the semi-finals in the country's first World Cup as an independent nation.
