The second semi final clash of the FIFA World Cup 2018 will see Croatia and England tussling each other at Luzhniki Stadium. The path till here hadn’t been a comfortable one for the Croatians. They kicked off their world cup journey by winning all three matches in the group and found Denmark in the Round of 16 which went to the penalties to find the winner. Surviving the penalties thanks to Danijel Subasic’s heroics in the quarter final as well against the host nation Russia, Croatia was once again taken to the penalties. It was fortunate for Luka Modric and his team to have won both the games but the extended timing of the game has exposed the vulnerabilities and weakness of the Croatian players as they looked exhausted on the ground in the second half of the extra time. Croatia would want to wrap this game within the first ninety minutes but the task at hand won’t be easy.
The Three Lions had so far their perfect dream run, making their third world cup semi final appearance. The first time England reached the semi final in the world cup 1966, they went on lifting the trophy and in 1990, they failed to reach the final and now in FIFA World Cup 2018, they are once again trying to bring football home. All eyes would be on the star talisman Harry Kane who had been a great captain and the top contender for winning the golden boot award in this world cup. England showed their dominance in their last game against Sweden and now they know that they would be facing Croatia, so they must be working on the defense which often seemed vulnerable against a standard team.
