Croatia star Modric expects a tough game against a 'strong' England

11 Juillet 2018

"But we believe in our strengths too".

Apart from the experience of 103 global appearances, Lloris has a few other things going his way when he's trying to stop them - including the fact he's faced numerous Belgians already while playing for Tottenham in the Premier League.

Cherchesov's men fought and fought hard even after conceding a one-goal lead in the second-half of extra-time.

Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic appeared to tweak his hamstring against Russian Federation, which kept him from taking goal kicks by the end of the match.

The ongoing Fifa World Cup has delivered classic after classic.

Croatia are a different breed though and England will need Jordan Henderson to put on a shift in midfield to stop the threat posed by their star duo of Modric and Rakitic.

Fyodor Smolov had his first penalty saved by Danijel Subasic and, although Russian Federation goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev saved a Mateo Kovacic kick, their fate appeared sealed when Mario Fernandes fired wide from their third attempt.

"What can I say? Thank God everything is fine with him".

But having seen Croatia hold off Argentina superstar Lionel Messi and Denmark talisman Eriksen, conceding once in those two games, Dalic is optimistic they can do the same against Kane.

Revisiting his predictions ahead of the upcoming England vs. Croatia semi-final in Moscow, Neville allowed himself a pat on his own back before he urged England supporters to get behind Gareth Southgate's team.

Brod Fortress, which is an important piece of cultural heritage. will again be packed this Wednesday when fans will be cheering on their boy against England. "I can not tell you [if he will play on Wednesday]", Dalic said.

"There are no favourites at this World Cup, every game is 50-50 and you have to fight it out". The favourites are home now. "The teams who are hard-working, who are compact and united, these are the teams that are still here".

"Speaking at a news conference, Dier said: "[They are] two fantastic players, world-class players in their position. Ten years ago we had a famous generation and now we are close to them because we are in the semi-final after 20 years.

"We have power left for England". "We made lots of changes to help us be successful and seeing the younger teams win has been hugely rewarding".
