  • 1. Three Lions will become the official National Anthem

England, appearing in their first semi-final since 1990, had looked on course for their first final since 1966 as they led through Kieran Trippier's fifth-minute free kick and totally dominated the opening half.

The Three Lions have the chance to reach just the second major tournament finale in their history as they take on Croatia in a mouth-watering semi-final at Luzhniki Stadium. The broadcasting rights for FIFA World Cup 2018 in India is exclusively owned by Sony Pictures Networks. Having ended their famous penalty curse by beating Colombia in a shoot-out in the last 16, they might have fancied repeating here.

"It's tough, we're gutted", said England's captain and the tournament's current top-scorer Harry Kane. "We've been consistent about that".

"We experienced the extra time and penalties (against Colombia) and we know the physical and emotional effect of that", he said. They started off brightly but some of the spark has dwindled over the past two matches which is a cause of concern for the team.

"I'll obviously speak to the forwards and tell them what I think", Henderson said.

Mandzukic helps out Zlatko Dalic-coached Croatia as their first defender and they will need his tireless running and his aerial positioning to beat an English team which relies a lot on set-pieces and attacking football.

"We have seen it at Man City, he gets caught out ball watching and he was doing that again for the goal".

Southgate praised his players for their diligence and commitment ahead of a game that he believes his players approach as well prepared as possible.

The drug policy consultation was completed in response to the growing opioid crisis happening across the country. The overdose crisis, Dr.de Villa said, is a public-health issue, and deaths stemming from it can be prevented.

But no one could have put it better than those in the England camp themselves.

"I'm not surprised that Croatia have identified Raheem as a key player", said the 47-year-old Southgate.

"When I was managing at Middlesbrough we had a game at Reading and I was under a bit of pressure".

"Obviously it's been good to get to this stage and we've done everyone proud but we wanted to go on and win it. but we've fallen a bit short". We've had the chance to make a difference. "We have had a fantastic journey, further than we thought", he added.

"So, really, from that moment superstitions have rather gone out the window".

Jordan Henderson has been operating well in shielding the defence. Stones is ball-watching, and then when the ball goes in he's looking at people saying nobody gave me a shout - you're not going to get a shout in a World Cup semi-final!

The fact that this particular England team is the one to reach the semi-finals and not the so-called "Golden Generation" of Lampard/Beckham/Gerrard/Rooney/Scholes etc.is, perhaps, an intriguing one for England fans but suggests that this group is far more of a unit than previous incarnations of the Three Lions.

In Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, Croatia have arguably the best midfield in Russian Federation and the presence of star strikers Mario Mandzukic and Ante Rebic add some added force upfront.
