Has Croatia ever won the World Cup?

England manager Gareth Southgate says he knew that the negative press about Russian Federation leading up to this summer's World Cup would not turn out to be true.

Sir Bobby Robson was the last man to take England to a World Cup semi-final, 28 years ago at Italia 90.

.

Southgate's England take on Croatia in the semi-final in Moscow, having beaten Sweden 2-0 in the last eight in Samara. In their other appearance, in 1966, in London, they entered popular folklore by beating West Germany, an achievement that many fans have long thought they would never see again. Our physical performance coach has tried to keep refreshing the warm-ups for the players and keep them stimulated.

With three straight extra-time matches, Croatia has played the equivalent a full 90-minute match more than France has through six games in Russian Federation.

"It's important to keep the belief because the belief is strong in our team". Not what's happened in the past.

Speaking on the eve of Croatia's meeting with England, Dalic said: "We are a country where anything is possible, so there are no surprises".

Neither team came to Russian Federation being heralded as favourites but they have produced performances throughout the competition which have shown they were underestimated by the pundits.

Paul Sealey, who is visiting the area, said: "The team will do all in their power to win".

"Then we have the talent, the belief, the spirit to turn the game in the way we want". "We haven't said our last word, there is still one more game to go". Experiences we've come through, that an inexperienced team have to go through to get better.

Southgate has rebuilt the England team since their abject failure at Euro 2016, when Roy Hodgson's side were humiliated by Iceland in the round of 16.

He said: "Well, I think I've said this before, but I was not a renowned fashion icon throughout my playing career, so it's rather odd to feel that way now". You give everything you have, build friendships with your team, give everything for your country and play in a way that you hope connects with the fans.
