Croatia vs England (By: TFB)
After France edged past Belgium in the first semi final the second has Croatia face England which will see the winner face favourites France in the final.
Croatia have has it tough in the knockout stages so far after needing penalties to dispatch Denmark and then hosts Russia. That is two games that have involved 120 minutes of play so the Croatian players could be forgiven for feeling fatigue, especially with not much rest between games. The Croats do deserve to be here though as they have looked good and have the players to cause most teams problems. Modric and Rakitic alone will get in most sides' midfield.
England are on a similar level to Croatia, if not one higher. They are quite rightly favourites here but it's unlikely we'll see a one-sided affair. The Three Lions had a much easier quarter final with a 2-0 victory over Sweden so they should be the fresher side which gives them the slight edge going into this match.
If any side wins in 90 it will likely be England but we could see more extra time with England the most likely side to progress.
