A Night on the Verge in London

Croatia and France. A team of "hardened warriors", in the words of England's coach, against a scintillating young French side, destined to meet in the final of a World Cup that has utterly refused to follow any script.

However, the biggest concern looking ahead to Sunday's game is bound to be fatigue, with Croatia having also required extra time and penalties to come through ties against Denmark and hosts Russian Federation in the past two weeks.

This is the exact outcome Sault Ste.

"It's the third time I've cried in the last two weeks - Denmark, Russia, now this", he said.

"I'm feeling excellent, excellent", said Saric.

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic gave her U.S. counterpart Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May Croatia jerseys on Wednesday ahead of the Soccer World Cup semi-final against England.

France and Belgium are seen as the strongest teams left in the competition, which means the victor of Tuesday's match will head into the final as favourites to be crowned world champions.

Facebook Slapped With "Maximum" U.K. Fine For Cambridge Analytica Scandal
British politicians are now calling on Facebook to be more transparent about its internal investigation into data misuse . Facebook's annual revenue in 2017 was almost $40 billion, translating to a much higher possible fine of $1.6 billion.

"Want to know how insane we are?" said Fran Colak, a Croatian Saultite who had come down to the gathering to watch the semi-final game.

"It's the best run I've ever seen in my lifetime, so obviously pretty upsetting the way that it went", said Stu Hutchinson. "Only great teams can be as courageous as we were and fight back from a goal down against teams like England", Mandzukic said. "It's going to be a great day on Sunday".

"The game went a lot better after the first half", said Richard Majic, another spectator at the garage. His goal sent the game into the overtime period with 1-1 draw.

The goal weakened the Croatian side, allowing England to retain possession and control the tempo of the first half.

The population is expected to descend on pubs and beer gardens across the country in support of Gareth Southgate and the Three Lions and drink an extra 10 million beers, the British Beer and Pub Association said. In the 68 minute, Šime Vrsaljko curled a pass into the far post, finding Ivan Perisic, who slid the ball into the net to get the equalizer. Mario Mandžukić secured the win with another goal in the 100th, just minutes before the game would have gone into penalties.

England are Croatia's opponents in the final four of the tournament as they bid to reach their first final.

Very early on, oddsmakers had the French as the favorites in Sunday's World Cup final.
