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.
England star Dele Alli has spoken of his gratitude for the support of England fans throughout the Three Lions' impressive run in Russian Federation, but feels he is yet to produce his best form at the tournament. Among the spectators watching in St Petersburg was Pamela Anderson (inset), girlfriend of Adil Rami.
It's been 20 years since France have won it all in the World Cup, and they are on the verge of ending that long drought this year following their 1-0 win on Tuesday over fellow European powerhouse Belgium in the semifinals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. We're confident but we know it's going to be very hard.
Dele Alli is one of England's best players and he may well be one of the most superstitious, too.
Andy White, the head of PE at the Radcliffe School, used to teach Alli and says he always knew he was a special talent. Unsurprisingly, the mood in the England camp is positive but one thing Southgate has instilled in his players is a willingness to confront negative moments and learn from them.
The team has yet to make a mark on a major tournament, but beating Brazil to reach the semi-finals will have instilled belief they can win the biggest prize of all.
"Yes, we are in another final - two years ago, I remember what happened two years ago", the coach said after Tuesday's victory.
"And we have to be like that, I think, if we are going to get in the final, so we'll have to perform well and play well."
"Of course there is some power left for the English", said Dalic.
Come tomorrow it could be Croatia star Modric with whom Alli will want to swap jerseys.
