Croatia search for missing sparks ahead of England clash

Croatia search for missing sparks ahead of England clash”

England survived a penalty shootout against Colombia in the last 16 whereas Croatia emerged through extra-time and spot-kicks against Denmark before going through the same ordeal again against Russian Federation in Saturday's quarter-final.

A passionate fan of Neymar Jr. and the Brazilian football team, Ahmed had the opportunity to meet his idol and favourite football team in action. "They're bulls***. It divides people away from each other, but football is the number one thing that connects people together, the best ever", he said. It was a blunder of epic proportions that cost Uruguay the match when Fernando's deflection from Dele Ali landed in the goal instead of clearing the field, gifting France the second goal.

John Stones says he has no intention of letting the opportunity to play in England's first World Cup final in 52 years pass him by.

England footballing icon Paul Gascoigne has told the current Three Lions crop to "watch each other's back" as they prepare for their World Cup semi final clash with Croatia.

The Russian team lost to Croatia on penalties in the 1/4 finals of the World Cup with the score 3:4.

"We know where we are, we know we're not the finished article and I don't think we have loads of world class players. We have to play our own game regardless of who is in the stands".

Ivan Rakitic, so often a key man for Barcelona, was not almost as influential as at club level, while in defence, Russia's Mario Fernandes beat more highly rated defenders to head home a late equaliser.

In contrast for Russian Federation, who had taken the lead through another Denis Cheryshev wonder goal in the first half, there is only heartbreak as they finally go out. "We have succeeded I believe, but it is time to take a step forward".

Croatia are the second side to progress from a penalty shoot-out in consecutive knockout games in a World Cup after Argentina in 1990.

He said: "We have power left for England".

"It's a proud moment for us all when we put on the jersey and I'm going to grab it with both hands, run with it and enjoy it as much as we can".
