England World CupCroatia World CupSo, the FIFA 2018 Soccer World Cup Semi-Finals are here already, and one of the fixtures will see England take on Croatia. This is a very special time for the Brits considering they’ve finally got an opportunity to make it to the final. The last time it happened was all the way back in 1966. So, what can we expect from this exciting battle?

Well, Gareth Southgate, the English manager, has been all praise for his team, which is something we wouldn’t dispute. The boys from the UK did put on a pleasant show this entire season. The team has been working hard, and it has paid off so far. Some of the most notable names so far have been Phil Jones, Jack Butland, Danny Rose, Nick Pope, Gary Cahill, and Danny Welbeck.

What’s even better is that they’ll be up against a team that they are fairly familiar with. One of the players to watch out for on the Croatian side is Luka Modric. Modric already possesses a stellar reputation as a midfielder. This recent performance has only reinforced that reputation. To make things even more challenging for England, Modric is assisted by Perisic and Rakitic on either side. However, this match is still a fair bit difficult to predict. We are, after all, talking about two stupendous teams going against each other. Even so, there seems to be a marginal tilt in support for the Brits.
