The second semi-final between England and Croatia will start at 6am tomorrow.

After France beat Belgium 1-0 in Saint-Petersburg on Tuesday night to book their place in the World Cup final, the attention now turns to the other semi-final as England take on Croatia.

About 30,000 people are expected in London's Hyde Park alone, where a special screening has been organised.

Lovren has featured in all five of Croatia's World Cup games so far and played the entirely of the team's two knockout fixtures with Denmark and Russian Federation that went to a penalty shootout after 120 minutes of play.

England fans warm up for the game.

Many England fans in Moscow are, however, not wearing either white or red.

With talk of England's chances dominating conversations, even politicians and royalty have got in on the act.

"Gareth Southgate and the boys have done a fantastic job and I'm sure they are going to go on to do well and I wish them all the best of luck tonight", May said.

Croatia are wary of the threat posed by England captain Harry Kane, the tournament's leading scorer with six goals so far, while England will have to close down arguably the best player of this World Cup, Luka Modric.

Either way, they face their biggest test yet this World Cup and in the biggest game of their careers.

Moscow police estimate between 8,000 to 10,000 England fans may arrive in their city.
