Vrsaljko hoping to be fit for World Cup semi-final

Here's Why English Soccer Fans Keep Chanting 'It's Coming Home'

These were: Russian Federation would beat Saudi Arabia; France would beat Australia; England would beat Tunisia; Brazil and Switzerland to draw and Iran to beat Morocco (their first win at a world cup finals since 1998).

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is fast and unsafe alongside Harry Kane", the Croatia coach said at a press conference.

As World Cup fever mounts back home during a long summer heatwave, the country is hopeful of reaching a first final in more than half a century.

In effect, yellow cards are wiped at the semi-final stage.

"I've seen lots of ex-players and had lots of messages from ex-players as well who have the same view, so we're really pleased with his contribution, and his work-rate as well without the ball has been incredible for us".

Dozens of English soccer fans began heading for Moscow in a last-minute rush on Tuesday in an effort to be part of a potentially historic sporting moment as England take on Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals.

Asked what is was all about, a slightly bemused Southgate said: "That's exactly what I asked our fitness coach a well, 'What is that all about?'".

Paul the psychic octopus famously predicted the outcome of several games at the 2010 World Cup. "Now we're going to turn up in special Gareth waistcoats, it's only going to help the mood isn't it!"

The two teams will play in Moscow to decide who makes the final on Sunday. "People didn't believe in us, but we made them believe", Dzagoev added.

"As much as (Gareth) Southgate is deservedly receiving praise, the clubs must be credited for preparing players to play a more tactically fluid and technical game", Carragher wrote in the Telegraph. Croatia's most memorable victory over the Three Lions was the 3-2 win in 2009 at Wembley when Niko Kranjcar, Ivica Olic and Mladen Petric scored to knock England out of qualifying for Euro 2008. I think a few gin and tonics on Saturday night were enough to convince me to book the tickets.

Neville perfectly predicted the semi-final match-ups which will take place this week before, like Eden Hazard, he anticipated a Belgium vs. England final.
