Croatia and England meet in the second semifinal of the World Cup 2018. The match is played in Moscow. The Croats qualified in “quarter” and in the semifinals after the penalty shoot-outs, to the detriment of Denmark and Russia, respectively. England passed Columbia in the “optimi” after the penalty shootout, and defeated Sweden 2-0 in the “quarter”. My tip for Croatia – England can be read here.
Croatia has qualified in the World Cup semifinals. The strong point of the team coached by Zlatko Dalic is the middle line, built around the Modric – Rakitic couple. These are added to the interiors of Perisic and Brozovic, alongside the Rebic revelation, which will probably go to a much stronger club after this final tournament. Overall, the Croats have an impressive force, but it is likely to start defensive this match. Let’s not forget that their last two games ended in 120 minutes, plus penalty shoot-outs. Physical and mental consumption was huge. Especially on the counter, it is likely that the guys will develop the game on the flanks, where they will have superiority if Southgate continues to play in the three-defender system. From such a course of play, corners should result.
England has qualified in the World Cup semifinals after a long time. Harry Kane leads in the top six best markers of the final tournament with 6 successes. Tottenham’s striker is in direct duel for the title of golgheter England has shown a strong offensive appetite in the matches so far and should start in the attack and the semifinals. The key duel will go to the middle of the field, where Lingard will have the mission of canceling Modric. Kyle Walker, Dele Alli and Ashely Young have recovered after minor injuries suffered in the match with Sweden in the quarter-finals. There are also chances that Jordan Henderson will be recovered by the time of the match with the Croats.
