Croatia World Cup

during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Semi Final match between England and Croatia at Luzhniki Stadium on July 11, 2018 in Moscow, Russia.

Croatia's route to the final


Croatia come out on top in one hell of a game!!

They will face France in the World Cup final but unfortunately, England will be heading home…

A heroic showing, but they just didn’t do enough in the second half and extra time.

Mandzukic goal


Mario Mandzukic may well have just won the game for Croatia!!!

A header across the box just finds the Croat in the box and he puts it into the back of the net.

England need to reply and fast…

Simply stunning from Pickford


Pickford saves England!!

Mandzukic just needs to poke it in but Pickford is out and gets something on it to push it off target!!

Huge England chance

Perisic's earlier goal



It’s destined for the far corner but an incredible read and header from Vrsaljko…

We're back underway... again

It’s time for a hero to step up from either side to send their country through to the World Cup final.

Extra time!!

Croatia are head for back to back, to back extra-time games.

England meanwhile, will be disappointed they didn’t put it past Croatia in the first half.

Croatia deserve to be back into this game after their brilliant second-half performance.

You just can’t call this one…

On a knife edge

Words can’t describe how nervy this game is right now.

Croatia are coming forward and look the most likely to score but it’s back and forth stuff.

Looks like we are heading for extra-time…

Nerve city


It’s about to get real interesting!!!

Ivan Perisic brings Croatia level!

England chance!

They keep getting closer and closer.

Brilliant cross from Kieran Trippier nearly find a diving Harry Kane but he can’t make full contact.

Croatia slowly getting back into the game too, this is getting very interesting…

Second half underway...

45 minutes until we find out who joins France in the final…

HT: England 1-0 Croatia

It’s been one hell of a half for England but they should really be 2 or 3 up.

Chances need to be taken and Croatia got back into the game late on.

It could be a tense final 45 for England fans.

Another chance!!!

Jesse Lingard must hit the target at the very least.

Found at the edge of the box with absolutely no one around him and he puts his side-foot shot way past the post.

HAS to do better.


Harry Kane HAS to score that chance.

Subasic smothers his first attempt at goal but Kane hits the foot of the post with his follow up!!

England should really be 2-0 up.

Hyde park celebrations

England fans celebrate back at home

Beautiful picture

Croatia vs England live streaming & watch: Match preview

Will it be England or Croatia who will take on France in the World Cup final?

This semi-final clash promises to be dominated by one of opportunity. England and Croatia knew when both sides went on the other side of the draw that they both had a once in a lifetime opportunity for a memorable run. With many big guns facing early exits and majority of the tough opposition on the other half of the draw, these two nations knew making the final was a real possibility.


Croatia began the tournament in stellar fashion. They dominated their group with their elite midfield nucleus. They topped their group with 9 points, 7 goals scored and only 1 conceded. They put Argentina to the sword with a historic 3-0 victory over La Albiceleste. It was only in the knockouts their mortality showed.

Whilst being the better side in both matches they required extra time and penalties in both games against Denmark and Russia to claim victory. By the end of the game against Russia the side looked depleted, in a stark contrast to the battery powered Russians. The 240 minute matches clearly took their tool on the Croatians who will hope they can close the England game within 90 minutes.

Modric has been one of the tournament’s stars, often captured gliding along the pitch, making passing angles, linking play and progressing the ball up the pitch in aplomb. Modric has made a fine claim for the golden ball.


England began the tournament with a jubilant last minute victory over Tunisia, followed by a 6-1 demolition of Panama before a dead rubber match against Belgium. The 1-0 defeat to Belgium was a result the nation was secretly hoping for, putting them on the easier side of the draw. The nation then ended their long lasting curse after beating Colombia in penalties.

Then a professional 2-0 victory over Sweden saw them ready for the big boys. England’s Harry Kane is currently leading the way for the golden boot whilst the team’s improved mentality is a sight for sore eyes. England have scored 11 goals at this year’s World Cup, tying its record from the victorious 1966 tournament.

The Three Lions head to their first semifinal at the grand stage since 1990, and only the second since lifting the trophy in 1966. It will also be England’s 2nd time meeting Croatia at a major tournament since their 4-2 victory in Euro 2004.

England will be concerned over losing the midfield battle and maybe resigned to it. However they will hope to utilise their pace and quick transitions to hurt the Croatians where space is left.
