Vida Cleared to Face England After FIFA Warning

Subasic's four shootout saves are tied with Harald Schumacher of West Germany and Sergio Goygochea of Argentina for the most in a single World Cup. Such awards are for the contribution you've made. We'll have to focus more on defending from set pieces because we conceded today from a set-piece.

France should finally make their neighbours pay for their weakest link.

May the best team win.

England are the only one of the four semi-finalists at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation to have lost a game at the tournament.

With an attacking force featuring the likes of Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and Dries Mertens, the Belgians are fearsome in the attacking third.

In one of the most intense matches seen in this World Cup, Croatia edged past a gritty Russian Federation side on the last kick of the penalty shoot-out to make it to the tournament's semi-finals, for the first time since 1998. They're dealing with injuries to their starting right back, their goalkeeper and a handful of other players who could probably use a week in the ice bath.

It's their all round quality across the pitch and a tactical edge Roberto Martinez showed against Brazil that can see the Belgians through.

Ignashevich was one of the successful penalty takers in the 4-3 shootout defeat to Croatia and was also on target from the spot when they beat Spain on penalties.

A blatant Croatian handball just outside the penalty area gave Russian Federation a free kick in a risky spot, and Alan Dzagoev picked out an unmarked Mario Fernandes, who redirected the ball into Danijel Subasic's goal. He scored four goals, helped to drag a team widely expected to crash out at the group stages to within a penalty shoot-out on the semis and shone throughout.

"Modric is bestselling, although (Danijel) Subasic is becoming increasingly popular", Ana Maric, 20, selling souvenirs in downtown Zagreb, told AFP.

Croatia may be blessed with the talents of Luka Modric - arguably the finest midfielder in the world - and Ivan Rakitic, but is there any reason for England to be genuinely fearful?

Croatia beat Russian Federation in penalties and proceeded to a semi-final encounter against England on Thursday.

Les Bleus dominated proceedings against a defensively stingy Uruguay, with N'Golo Kante and Paul Pogba teaming up to overpower and thwart the South Americans in central midfield, while Antoine Griezmann gave their defence plenty of fits with his deft movement both with and without the ball. "We made ourselves happy but we also made everybody back home in Croatia happy". At that point, Subasic had to go the rest of the way for the Croatians.
