England - Croatia: the main defender of "Dnepr" may miss the match

The game ended 2-2 after extra time.

England survived a penalty shootout against Colombia in the last 16 whereas Croatia emerged through extra-time and spot-kicks against Denmark before going through the same ordeal again against Russian Federation in Saturday's quarter-final.

Against Croatia, they played differently, going all out and scoring first.

"There are no favourites at this World Cup, every game is 50-50 and you have to fight it out". A battle for the semis. We were lucky, thank God.

He also overcame missing a penalty in extra-time against Denmark, stepping up bravely minutes later to convert in a shoot-out. I felt really relieved.

Liverpool and Tottenham stars will face off for Croatia and England. This is a great result. "When you've got all these other teams, France, Belgium, England, that's the top teams from the beginning and we are the underdogs". He congratulated us on a very good game.

After such tight matches, it is easy to forget that Croatia produced a feast of attacking play to destroy Lionel Messi's Argentina 3-0 in the group phase. We are very motivated. "So it's a case of giving all we have and go further than we ever have before". I felt something unusual in my knee and after talking with the doctor on the sideline we decided I should come off. Harry Maguire and Dele Alli were the goal scorers.

"They breezed past Sweden". In England's class of 2018, free kicks, corners and wide crosses are mostly provided by England's wing backs, Young and Kieran Trippier, and they are proving tough to defend.

In Sochi, Croatia fans were massivelt outnumbered in a crowd of more than 40,000, but Dalic's team had one notable backer - President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.

The early ratings numbers for this World Cup weren't great for Fox or Telemundo, especially with the absence of the USA, leading to all sorts of dubious comparisons such as "versus the last four World Cups" (which goes back to the middle-of-the-night 2002 one in Japan and South Korea). It's all 50-50. You have to fight it out.
