England vs. Croatia semifinal odds, lines, expert picks, and best insider predictions

The contribution of Raheem Sterling remains a polarizing debate in England with the Manchester City player without a goal for his country since October, 2015 but Southgate says the forward's contribution in Russian Federation has been essential. Visit SportsLine now to see the strong Croatia-England pick, all from a European football expert whose powerful model is up 1,800 percent in less than three years.

If England avoid making another horribly uncomfortable opening 20 minutes and find their touch early in the game, the running of the forwards, their threat from set-plays and Henderson's passing could unlock a Croatian defence which has been breached four times.

Description: FIFA World Cup 2018 Semi-Final: England vs Croatia Match Preview In the second semifinal clash of the World Cup 2018, it will be England who will take on Croatia. For many, they were among the title favorites at that stage, but penalties have since been needed to get past Denmark and hosts Russian Federation.

"We can feel the energy and the support from home and it´s a very special feeling and a privilege for us", Southgate said on Tuesday. "We do not want to say we are exhausted, because there are still plenty of opportunities to exhaust ourselves".

It was a painful defeat for Belgium, foiled at the semi-final for the second time in their history, as the clock ticks on their so-called "golden generation" of players.

"I'm a little bit anxious about Harry Kane".

Although there's often outrage in the country when ITV shows a game over the BBC, largely as a result of the ad breaks during halftime, ITV commentators Jon Champion and Ally McCoist have emerged as one of the most popular pairings in a long time. Croatia required a pair of penalty shootouts to advance, eking by Denmark and host Russian Federation on spot kicks to reach the last four, with Ivan Rakitic scoring the clincher in both matches.

"I've got a amusing feeling that the momentum is so good, and, you know, especially now that we're all going to turn up with special Gareth waistcoats, and that can only help can't it", said fan Lee Walkup, 50.

However, in Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, Croatia have two of the best midfielders in the world and should provide England with their hardest test yet. "We'll repeat that this Sunday", said one supporter, Sebastien. The 2010s are the years of living ironically, however, and a new meme has sprouted out of England's above-average showing at this World Cup.

"I think Raheem has been fundamental to the way that we have played - his movement, the positions he takes up, his pressing of the ball, his work-rate for the team, the winning of free kicks and corners, his speed to stretch teams".
