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

People will point to Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic but I'm not anxious about the extra experience Croatia have - yeah, they might have a few more caps but none of them have won a World Cup or been in a World Cup final.

The coach Zlatko Dalić is likely to move Damagoj Vida on the right back, and veteran Vedran Corluka will play in the center of defense along with Dejan Lovren.

Having played every game so far, Croatia will have to adjust to life without Vrsaljko and it could be a situation that England takes advantage of in preparations leading up to Wednesday's game.

"We keep hearing the same question and we give out the same answer", said Croatia's Ivan Perisic last week. "We don't fear England". [Harry Kane] is top scorer - he's not easy to stop. "We managed to stop Messi and [Christian] Eriksson so hopefully we can stop Kane".

Kane is two goals clear in the race for the Golden Boot, the England captain having fired the Three Lions into their first semi-final since 1990.

Mitch McConnell chased from restaurant by protesters
It's not the first time McConnell has been confronted about the Trump Administration's immigration policies. " Where are the babies, Mitch ", the person asked.

"They are really good at set-pieces and their tall players are risky at corners. We played at club level as well", says striker Mario Mandzukic, who played with Modric at Dinamo Zagreb a decade ago before the latter joined Tottenham Hotspur.

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.

"How they're still held and revered".

"They dealt with Sweden relatively easily so we know they are going to be a hard opponent and we respect them", he continued.

"We also feel we've had events on when we've been in camp when some of those guys have been in, when the road was named at St George's after Sir Alf [Ramsey]. We were together during the magnificent story at Leicester and I will remember that always", said Kramaric. I think we can blow these away by two or three goals and my prediction would be a 3-0 victory for England with Raheem getting off the mark at this World Cup with the opening goal. Which is a shame because you should enjoy it and really feel it. Soon we will know what is the situation with our players that had some minor problems with injuries in the game on Saturday night.
