Croatia working extra, says it will have enough for England

Croatia working extra, says it will have enough for England

Croatia captain Luka Modric said his side showed character on Saturday to get through "another drama" after edging to a second straight shoot-out win to knock Russian Federation out of the World Cup and set up a semi-final with England.

Stones - who has started all five of England's games at Russian Federation 2018, scoring twice - is well aware that the opportunity to contest a World Cup final may never come around again and is relishing the chance to make it happen.

NAIJ.com previously reported that Croatia progressed into Russian Federation 2018 semifinals after beating Russian Federation 4-3 on penalties.

There's no way Croatia is going to have any juice left in the tank for England in the World Cup semifinals, right?

They will face England, who beat Sweden 2-0 earlier, at the Luzhniki Stadium Moscow on Wednesday.

The two teams most recently met in a qualifying match for the 2010 World Cup, which saw England crush Croatia, 5-1.

They can, however, be proud of their efforts, with a run to the last eight exceeding expectations for a side written off as no-hopers before the tournament. "It is up to us to take the game to them and play our game".
