Lovren, though, does not think fatigue will prove a problem against England.

"I'm perfectly ready and fit".

"It's not the same if you play 90 minutes twice and 120 minutes twice, but I believe we've had ample time to recover and we're professional enough to know who needs what in terms of recovery", he said.

"This is maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity". As you probably already know if you're reading this, England face off against Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals tomorrow (July 11) at 2 p.m. EDT.

England and Croatia are teams that innovated over time but have generally been immutable during the World Cup, sticking to virtually identical starting line ups except for group phase fin·les, after advancement was secure.

However, through my crash course in the other* football, I keep finding more and more striking parallels in the trajectory of each team and their supporters.

"This is what drives us".

Tintin and Asterix have always been rivals in the world of the comic strips for both are popular for their entertainment and art. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris made another excellent save to help his team to victory and he called reaching the final "crazy".

"The nation is in meltdown; it has been the hottest summer in a generation, Boris Johnson has finally fucked off, and the country has sent out a search party out to find football because it was due home for tea a couple of weeks ago and it's still not back. Probably nobody would go to work!"

Lovren was not impressed when he was reminded of that day by an English reporter.

Customer Dean Lovett, who was checking in, said: "It's going to be really tight when I get there". "It's completely irrelevant, that one defeat against Spurs". "That is awesome, but I think it's time we knock it off the number one spot with Three Lions".

Nowadays you can watch and rewatch every kick, flick and trick from the world's premier football competition.

He added: "I have full respect for Kane".

Dalic refused to confirm whether right back Sime Vrsaljko would miss the game, after the Atletico Madrid player came off in extra time against Russian Federation. "All these words from them we take, we were reading and we were saying 'ok, today we will see who will be exhausted'". He has some minor problems but we are facing a huge game. "We need another goal".
