In the second semi-final of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, two underdogs will fight out for a place in the final. Croatia meets England in what will be a spectacle riddled with fireworks.
Croatia started off this tournament with a flier. They defeated Nigeria and Argentina comfortably and topped the group. They went onto show their defensive abilities and how well balanced in the entire team is in their two knockout games.
Coach Zlatko Dalic has made sure the team doesn’t get complacent when they were winning and has masterminded the country’s second-ever appearance in the semi-final of the World Cup.
Captain Luka Modric, has been the driving force for the team. He has used his wealth of experience well throughout the tournament and has been supported well by his teammates.
Ivan Rakitic, Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic have been good in the competition. It’s time for their biggest test yet.
Meanwhile, England have lived the story of dark horses in the tournament. They have gotten better with every single game they’ve played, and this is a credit to their coach Gareth Southgate.
Captain Harry Kane is only 24-years-old but has been in killer form. It will be difficult to stop him with this momentum.
Jesse Lingard, Jordan Henderson and Dele Alli are gelling well together. The defence has been rock solid but their main man apart from Kane in this tournament has been Jordan Pickford.
The Three Lions have got the backing of the entire nation with them now, and the question ‘ Is it actually coming home’ will get another narrative when this team faces their opponents in the second semi-final.
