Projecting Final Matchup Before 1st Semi-Final Game

Projecting Final Matchup Before 1st Semi-Final Game”

Neville perfectly predicted the semi-final match-ups which will take place this week before, like Eden Hazard, he anticipated a Belgium vs. England final.

While England literarily strolled through their match against Sweden, they look favoured to win the highly anticipated match.

The semi-final also represents a financial mismatch between the riches of England's Premier League and Croatian football.

"We have always said we would it take one game at a time but we can go on and create our own history".

France won 4-2 when the teams met in the group stages in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.

Belgium and Croatia will now be seeking a first World Cup final appearance, while France could reach a third after 1998 and 2006, and England have to go back to Wembley 1966 for their one and only final.

On his part, Coach Roberto Martinez will seek to use the "Golden Generation" of Belgium talents under his tutelage to grab one of the final slot for the grand finale at the Luzhniki in Moscow.

The 26-year-old was born just a few months after England's last appearance in a World Cup semi-final at Italia '90, along with another 16 members of the current squad who also weren't born as Sir Bobby Robson's Three Lions lost to West Germany on penalties.

Yet it is England's creative, dynamic and intelligent midfield that will need to be on the top of its game against Croatia.

Belgium has never been to the final of a World Cup, but that's exactly what they look poised to do as the highest-ranked team (No. 3 in the latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings) left in the tournament.

"We watched the game today and saw how good they are from dead-ball situations", captain Luka Modrić said. They should beat Croatia.

Harry Kane would have to be more clinical in front of goal in order to add to his tally of six goals and possibly emerge as the victor of the famed Golden Boot in the 2018 FIFA World Cup. England is set to face Croatia on Wednesday in the FIFA World Cup semifinal.
