Croatia – England World Cup Semi Final
Balance almost perfect.
The last semifinal of the World Cup is that between Croatia and Russia scheduled at 21:00 on the Luzhniki Arena.
Another European duel that will surely attract the attention of many football lovers, yet they are two selected who have put their mark on this final tournament quite fairly through the beautiful games they have made. It remains to be seen which nation will risk the most and will be at full capacity both mentally and physically because in such a phase you need all the elements to achieve success.
Zlatko Dalic’s Croatia has managed to do so far in this World, and many are expecting to see this national as high as possible with all the resources needed to get over any opponent. In groups, Croatia won all the games, winning 9 points in the games with Nigeria, Iceland and even Argentina. South-Europeans have played in all these parties with a lot of calm, but with a lot of devotion and team spirit. Modric, Rakitic, Mandzukic or Pjaca, although they have had an extremely tiring and long season, even now have the power to play at the highest level showing the extreme professionalism they are endowed with.
Croatia – England World Cup Prediction
The heavy began in the eightsi where the Croats had much of a hook against Hareide’s Danes, and they managed to eliminate them only to the penalty kicks where Subasic was providentially noted through the three successful interventions. In quarter-finals, Croatia has cheered with the host country, Russia, a game that almost controlled it all, the first 30 minutes being the problem that caused them and the goal scored by Cheryshev. Kramaric managed to score and gave hope to the Croats that he could qualify. Subasic was again the main actor who sent Croatia to the semifinals where they will face the British selection. This type of opponent has not been encountered so far, and it will certainly be a very difficult test for Dalic’s band, given that after two 120-minute matches, the lack of energy recovery will tell the word during this game. Kalinic and Vrsaljko will not be able to play in this match, the right defender being a pretty heavy loss for the Croatian national.
Probable team Croatia: Danijel Subasic; Sime Vrsaljko, Dejan Lovren, Domagoj Vida, Ivan Strinic; Ivan Rakitic, Marcelo Brozovic; Ante Rebic, Luka Modric, Ivan Perisic; Mario Mandzukic
England has come to this Final Tournament in a formula completely changed from the last World with the desire to reach as high as possible this time. The English national has greatly emphasized the quality of young players and their promotion, and so a young Southgate coach has arrived at the helm of this team, where the federation hopes that it will be able to bring England to the brink of success.
The three games played across the groups meant a lot for this generation, most of them trying to stay in the capacity during the regular championship. Grazie tests with Panama, Tunisia and Belgium, this is worth it, and here’s how he finally manages to get rid of the 11-meter bad luck and qualifies in the quarter-finals, sending home to Colombia. The Europeans played quite well throughout the game, unfortunately they noticed the lack of maturity because after the successful 90th minute victory of the Colombians, the extra rounds were in favor of the South Americans who managed to manage better than the English. The quarter-finals have perhaps brought the most seated opponent of this World Cup, Sweden. This Nordic nation was pleasantly surprised by all the parties and was preparing to show it against the British. The thing was that it was not possible for Kane & Co to qualify in a categorical manner, perhaps because the Swedes played a mediocre football, or that the British knew how to accomplish what their coach asked for. England qualifies this way in the semifinals after 22 years, where it will face the Croatian national who will surely treat it with much tact and attention. Neither Kane nor Sterling or Lingard are clear weapons for a dream qualification in the final, but the whole group, the force of which is the one that will be decisive for the acceditation in the last act.
Probable England Team: Jordan Pickford; Kyle Walker, John Stones, Harry Maguire; Kieran Trippier, Dele, Jordan Henderson, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young; Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane.
Prediction Croatia – England
This European semifinal will surely have a fantastic audience at the stadium, both England and Croatia being outlined by extremely explosive fans throughout the game. Betting houses are of the opinion that Southgate’s national is a favorite to qualify because the English game is more and more solid, while Dalic’s national has a problem with elimination games where his players no longer concentrate in the same manner as in groups. However, as in the other semi-final, I think the group’s strength will be decisive. I do believe, however, that Croatia has not said all the words to this World, being convinced that they have the strength to qualify if they will be able to return to their maximum freshness.
Prediction of the Day: Over 1.5 goals
