England meanwhile is seeking to reach a first final since their only title win at Wembley in 1966 in today's second semifinal at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium - also the venue for Sunday's final. Croatia will be 41-year-old Çakır's third match in Russian Federation 2018.

Basically, we think that these two tweets perfectly sum up how we feel about the former Ireland and Faroe Islands manager and if you're a gambling man or woman, Paddy Power have an absolutely ideal market for you ahead of the England vs Croatia semi-final.

It will be the third match his has officiated at the World Cup after overseeing Morocco vs Iran and Nigeria vs Argentina.

Despite all the talk of England's placement on the "easier" side of the playoff tree, or the fact that they appear to rely on set-pieces for a large percentage of goals, the fact remains that they are in a World Cup semi-finals, a position they would have grasped with both hands at the onset of Russian Federation 2018.

If you don't have a TV or prefer to live stream the Croatia vs. England World Cup game for whatever reason, that's slightly more complicated but still possible.

"In the past six days, we have spent a lot of energy. We know what it takes and in such moments you forget any fatigue you may feel", said the 29-year-old Liverpool player.

"We have waited for several years for this with Croatia".

Lovren continued: "I have all respect for Harry Kane".

Where else would you get lines like "For a fella that once played as a banger for Real Madrid in a Copa Del Rey match, he certainly banged that one in", "looks like he's banjo'd now alright", or the utterly brilliant "he went down like a big whinge-bag".

"We have strength and we're united on the pitch".

Draws against Australia and France meant they held onto it until the knockout stages but the penalty loss to Croatia handed the title over to Luka Modric and co.
