  • FIFA World Cup 2018: Quarter-final roundup and semi-final schedule

In a thrilling semifinal clash against Belgium in the ongoing FIFA World Cup, France managed to edge past with a 1-0 win to book a ticket to the final in Russian Federation.

"We had more chances today, we had more control of the match", Kompany said.

For English fans firmly believing that football is coming home and that the Three Lions will win the World Cup in Russian Federation, they must be wary of the threat that Luka Modric poses in Wednesday's semi-final Three Lions worldwide Jermaine Jenas has warned. "If I had a vote, I would vote for Luka", he said.

"Obviously we know we are playing in the World Cup, in the semi-final".

Modric has scored twice in Russian Federation, including a fabulous goal in the 3-0 win over Argentina in the group stage, and twice netted in nail-biting penalty shootouts against Denmark and Russian Federation.

"They've seen we've got good lads who are incredibly proud to play, and are playing in a slightly different style to the one we've seen for a few years - playing with confidence on a big stage".

"He deserves all the accolades he gets from the media and public". The South Americans - without injured PSG forward Edinson Cavani, worked hard, but never really troubled the 1998 champions. "I am happy that I came here and now we will go for the third place", Belgium fan Patrick Robert Wouters said.

Having played every game so far, Croatia will have to adjust to life without Vrsaljko and it could be a situation that Gareth Southgate and Steve Holland take advantage of in their preparations leading up to Wednesday's game.

For example, in 2017-18, Cousins was forced to take 55 percent of his catch-and-shoot attempts with a defender close by. All the while, Cousins will experience one of the highest-functioning organizations in sports from the inside.

There is little prospect that they would have come this far without Modric, who as a boy was forced to flee his village home after his grandfather was killed by Serb forces in the Croatian independence war.

Mamic was sentenced to six and a half years in prison last month, while Modric has been charged with giving false evidence in the case.

Despite his off-field troubles, Modric been an admirable leader for his team on the field, allowing them to match the great side of 1998 that reached the last four in France.

As the game went to extra time, and then penalties, the beers kept flowing and Mandzukic's bar tab sailed past 3000 pounds ($5325), according to Croatian news site 24Sata who said the 32-year-old outlaid 25,000 kuna toward the bill.

Organisers of the British Summertime concerts in Hyde Park faced huge demand after offering 30,000 free tickets to see the game on their big screen, which was being tested yesterday.

The clashes lasted over an hour, with several reported injuries and at least one arrest.

"I think they (England) have been fantastic, a breath of fresh air".

The former England defender said for 20 years he couldn't bear listening to Three Lions (Football's Coming Home) - released before Euro '96, during which he missed a penalty against Germany.
