As England prepare for Wednesday's World Cup semi-final against Croatia - their biggest match since they played West Germany at the same stage in 1990 - they have been backed into [3.8] second favourites on the Exchange.

The playmaker, who won a third successive Champions League title with Real Madrid before coming to Russian Federation, brushed off suggestions that his performance might put him in the running for the Ballon d'Or prize as the world's best player. They are two great players, everyone knows that.

"They're very unsafe on set-pieces". I asked him and he said he was OK, it did not affect him much.

"I wouldn't say there are any glaring weaknesses (in England's team) since they are in the semi-finals, that says it all". Denis Cheryshev said the most important thing about the World Cup was that it gave joy to the entire country.

The Three Lions have scored eight times from set-pieces in Russian Federation already, the most at a World Cup since Portugal in 1966. For long their national team hasn't justified their claim that they have the best league in the world.

Why can't the Celtic soul brothers hate England like we used to?.

. But you have a great team and it will be a really hard game. In Mandzukic, Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Ivan Perisic, Croatia have players who are at some of Europe's top clubs. He passes it better than Eric Dier and keeps the fluency of the side which brings the best out of Raheem Sterling and Dele Alli, the England attackers crave that quick, fluent passes.

"If you're asking me a question in a one-off final can we do it?"

The players, who suffered a heartbreaking quarter-final defeat on Saturday, unfurled a huge banner reading "We are playing for you" in a tribute to their devoted fans and their passionate support during the tournament.

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is really fast and his combination with Harry Kane is really unsafe".

Croatia has played an accumulated game time of 240 minutes in two matches in the round of sixteen and the quarters.
