"Both teams have goals in them and it will be a fairly open game".

England and Croatia are teams that innovated over time but have generally been immutable during the World Cup, sticking to virtually identical starting lineups except for group phase finales, after advancement was secure. England are favourites at $2.4 compared to Croatia's 3.65. "I will go home, take the dogs for a run, disappear to Yorkshire, but it is of course a chance to be involved in something incredibly special".

Croatia were forced to work hard for their place in the semis, needing a penalty shoot-out to beat hosts Russian Federation. We feel proud and happy we are in the semifinals, but we do not want to stop there.

In keeping with his even-handed and calm style, Southgate said his team were neither complacent nor too pumped up for Wednesday's clash at the Luzhniki Stadium, England's first World Cup semi-final since 1990. But when England face Croatia in Russian Federation on Wednesday, there may only be only a few thousand England supporters present.

The second semi-final between England and Croatia will start at 6am tomorrow.

While Croatia possess arguably the best central midfield pairing in the tournament in Real Madrid's Luka Modric and Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic, Southgate's language does not indicate he is about to bring in Eric Dier as an additional defensive midfielder alongside Jordan Henderson.

Photographs taken by someone passing the scene showed the car's front right bumper damaged and Clooney's bike on its side. The car's driver assisted George after the crash and reportedly called an ambulance, according to NBC .

Despite the much-vaunted attack of teenager Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann, France's defence proved the difference as they shut down Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku and they showed they will be hard to beat on Sunday.

Pundit Paul Merson has told the Daily Star that he thinks Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren won't have slept well thinking about having to play against Harry Kane tonight. Should he score, he will become just the third player to score on all seven days of the week for England, after Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard.

But both England and Croatia are now optimistic as they look to book a place in the final.

"That is probably because he does not get more goals".

- Why has World Cup been full of surprises? - Croatia scored two headers in its last match against Russian Federation - only one of its previous 29 World Cup goals was scored via a header.
