World Cup fever soars in England on #WaistcoatWednesday

Three people were arrested after a Saab car was seized in Fratton with 2,500 worth of stolen goods

Scenes in Zagreb after Croatia qualified for the semi-final.

But Croatia spoiled the party at the 2018 World Cup semifinals.

Should England hold on for the victory, the Three Lions will take on France in the World Cup final on Sunday, where more beer will undoubtedly be sent to the heavens with every goal scored. It seemed that after making its way to the final, the French didn't plan to make any major shifts in the last match-no matter who their opponent is.

"We have to be pragmatic and we have to be realistic", French manager Didier Deschamps said ahead of England vs. Croatia, according to ESPN. "We are about mental strength and solidarity, working for each other".

"We deserved to reach the final".


Such is the interest in England's first World Cup semifinal since 1990 that the system crashed when London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced 30,000 free tickets would be made available to watch the game in Hyde Park via a ballot.

In the end, neither Croatia nor England was expected to make it this deep into the tournament, but here they are and France is waiting. "They've shown remarkable character", Southgate said.

May received the number 10 jersey of Croatia captain Luka Modric. Both teams will be looking to erase history in the final.

The British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) has been following the U.K.'s booze consumption throughout this competition, and as England has continued winning, the number of pints patrons are downing has increased as well.

In a World Cup replete with set-piece goals, a corner again proved decisive when Umtiti timed his run perfectly to meet Antoine Griezmann's delivery six minutes into the second half.
