Gareth Southgate says England face toughest World Cup test against Croatia

GETTY    
   Paul Gascoigne has urged Gareth Southgate to keep it

"'Football's coming home' is a song I couldn't even listen to for 20 years, frankly, so for me it has a slightly different feel", Southgate said Tuesday on the eve of England's World Cup semifinal match against Croatia.

Croatia topped a tough group, winning all three games.

Right back Sime Vrsaljko limped off during the quarterfinal win over host Russian Federation and goalkeeper Danijel Subasic had a hamstring injury during extra time but remained in the match. England are favourites at $2.4 compared to Croatia's 3.65. "I will go home, take the dogs for a run, disappear to Yorkshire, but it is of course a chance to be involved in something incredibly special".

"But if we're ready to give our all on the pitch like we did when we played Argentina, if we will be compact, then I don't believe that there will be problems".

Should he strike on Wednesday against Croatia, Kane will join Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard as the only other two players to bag goals for England on each day of the week. "England have been deadly from set-plays and I think this could be their route to the final". "Like one heart, one soul". "We do not want to say we are exhausted, because there are still plenty of opportunities to exhaust ourselves".

London-based motion graphic company Potion Pictures marked England's brilliant World Cup 2018 performance with a hilarious online video. The center-back will be key to limiting England's threat from set pieces and will be a useful weapon in the opposition box, too. Croatia's midfield control depends on the exceptional balancing act done by Luka Modric and Rakitic, and Henderson is the only player at Gareth Southgate's disposal who is well-equipped to disrupt that rhythm. - England has scored 11 goals at this year's World Cup, tying its record from the victorious 1966 tournament.

He added: "I have full respect for Kane". Should he score, he will become just the third player to score on all seven days of the week for England, after Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard.

"I cannot imagine what will happen if Croatia were to win the World Cup, I really can't".

"We shouldn't be surprised that Croatia are in the last four at a World Cup given the quality of players", said Dalic, who only took over as coach of the "Vatreni" towards the end of their qualifying campaign.
