Gary Neville's World Cup predictions are very impressive in hindsight

10 July, 2018, 09:00 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

Croatia's failure to beat Russian Federation in normal time cost us last time out but with four matches to go we are still showing a healthy profit from one of the most exciting World Cups in living memory.

Actually, breaking the 2018 record established by Croatia's July 1 victory in penalties over Denmark, the Russian loss to the Luka Modric lead team scored a whooping 5.0/13 in metered market ratings.

Dalic's side overcame hosts Russian Federation on Saturday in their second succesive penalty shootout.

"I said that of the eight quarter-finalists, only Sweden and Russian Federation can't win it, so England definitely have a chance".

"We have two matches to play, we are very motivated, we will give our all".

It will be Croatia's second World Cup semi-final appearance since 1998 and England's first since 1990.

When Croatia stormed through the group stage with nine points from three games, they did in indeed look like serious contenders.

"They have the likes of Luka Modric in the team - he's a fantastic player - but they have other players around the squad that are going to be hard opponents".

England defender Kyle Walker heaps praise on captain Harry Kane, describing his former Tottenham Hotspur teammate as a "goal machine".

It's been the comedic undertone to a World Cup run bathed in belief by England fans around the world, but 2018 could indeed be the year football comes home.

"But we believe in our strengths", said Dalic. It was Colombia first who was beaten in the shoot-out, showing to the world that this is a new team. They turned in their best team performance at this World Cup in the quarters, and there was loads to enjoy right across the park.

"The good thing is Pickford has made important saves at the right times". The Three Lions maybe have issues creating chances from open play, but they are also shutting oppositions' attacks. This young side may be missing experience of some other teams, but their spirit and child-like euphoria could propel them into history once more.

The joy is etched across the faces of the players and manager Gareth Southgate and his No 2 Steve Holland joined in the fun at their Repino training base as Kyle Walker took on the "forfeit tunnel" with blows raining down on him. I could see this turning into a bit of a frantic match, as both teams are playing the biggest match of their generation and nerves could play a part in all of that.
