Russian Federation 2018: Croatia Fear England’s Sterling In Semi-Final

The current best midfielder walking on the planet earth- Fans rave over Modric masterclass

Lily and Ben both went to school in Croatia and Mr Colgan said: "We'll all be WhatsApping each other". We could have been eliminated against Denmark [in the round-of-16 tie they won on penalties].

Former Arsenal legend Thierry Henry said Lovren was "scared of Kane" while former Liverpool legend Graeme Souness said the centre-back was "in awe of Kane". Before they didn't have any pressure.

Russian Federation reached the quarter-finals for the first time since not playing as part of the Soviet Union, and the team exceeded expectations in knocking out Spain in the last round before running a much-fancied Croatia team incredibly close in Sochi.

Danny has a holiday home in Leysdown on the Isle of Sheppey which he visits every weekend, and said the majority of his friends live in Minster, Queenborough, Gillingham and Strood.

"They showed from the games I've seen so far that they play direct football and they are very fast". Furthermore, they've not lost to a lower ranked side when level at the break for more than 10 years and we have England ranked 5th, one place above Croatia in 6th.

Corluka was part of the Croatia side who defeated England 3-2 at Wembley in 2007, a result that ensured their rivals did not qualify for the 2008 European Championship.


"In four years' time in Qatar we will be better", Cherchesov added, referring to the next World Cup tournament.

"We took a hard route". Nobody expected this to be honest.

"This is something we have been dreaming about. The whole country is celebrating and all the team is very proud".

Luka Modric has been backed as a potential Golden Ball victor by Croatia team-mate Mario Mandzukic.

He replied: "We are not".

Not many expected Spain to fail to make the final four of the World Cup and even fewer anticipated Brazil crashing out at the quarter-final stage but Gary Neville gets paid the big bucks for a reason. "Hopefully it will be us".
