Croatia will play on counter and rely on Modric, Rakitic - Tapalovic

I've heard 10,000 fans are travelling out from England for the semi-final. If there is no victor after 120 minutes the tie is decided on penalties.

It was arguably France's most impressive display at the World Cup.

On its Facebook page, local broadcaster Radio Slavonija posted pictures of fans packing the Brod Fortress-one of Europe's best preserved fortresses-which has served as Slavonski Brod's soccer hotspot throughout the tournament.

France will face Belgium in the first semi-final clash at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on Tuesday after the two sides beat the South American contingents from Uruguay and Brazil respectively.

All of France, Belgium, England and Croatia have been convincing enough en route to their respective semi-final encounters scheduled to take place in a couple of days.

This is only the second time the model has changed its forecast all tournament and did so after its pre-competition favourites Brazil crashed out 2-1 against Belgium in the quarter-finals.

He powered home the opening goal in the 2-0 quarter final victory over Sweden with a bullet header on Saturday and has already become an internet meme and national hero at the same time.

The penalty shootout win against hosts Russian Federation in the quarter-finals on Sunday seems to have gone a long way towards achieving that. I feel we have momentum on our side, we're getting stronger with each game and hopefully reaching our peak just at the right time. It's England's biggest game for 28 years and they are certainly not without hope this week.

A narrow 1-0 win for England, probably from another set-piece, puts Gareth Southgate's men in the final. Harry Kane has 6 goals for England and is looking a sure bet for the Golden Boot Award.
