World Cup semi-final England v Croatia

Russia v Croatia – FIFA World Cup 2018 – Quarter Final – Fisht Stadium

The Croats needed extra-time and penalties for the second successive knockout game, beating Russian Federation last time, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see them tire at some point in this game.

Fellow fan Alex Klein, 28, added: "If we win, if we beat Croatia I'll, I'll probably cry, because to see England in a World Cup final is, is like a dream, a lifelong dream".

England has had an unbelievable run at the tournament and they reached the semi-finals for the third time in their history and the first time since 1990. First quarter-final win for longer. "We are looking to keep breaking those barriers down".

As England progress closer to claiming the title for the first time since 1966, Southgate also revealed he wasn't actually able to listen to Three Lions for 20 years.

"Croatia are a good side and (Luka) Modric and (Ivan) Rakitic are superb players but we have the players to do it".


Robert Prosinecki, a member of the 1998 squad, said: "I would so much like that they be better than us. That in future we talk about them", said Blazevic, now 83, and known in Croatia as the "coach of all coaches". "We are not. There is still a chance to exhaust ourselves".

"They are proud to wear the shirt".

Southgate conceded the tune brings back painful memories from 22 years ago, when he missed the crucial penalty in England's semi-final defeat to Germany, and is happy to see it take on new meaning for a new generation. "Come on England! #ItsComingHome", Elton captioned the photo.

The group is facing one its most hard meetings in years due to US President Donald Trump's criticism of the organisation and his targeting of German leader Angela Merkel. "It is a special feeling and a privilege".

But let's think: How might football come home to Singapore when football fans are more conversant with the transfer values of English Premier League players than names of our national team? "It has a slightly different feel for me, but it's nice to hear people enjoying it again", Southgate said.
