Wimbledon men's final will not move if England reach Russian Federation showpiece

World Cup final 2018- world cup trophy

Croatia captain Luka Modric said his side showed character on Saturday to get through "another drama" after edging to a second straight shootout win to knock out Russian Federation and set up a World Cup semi-final with England.

But now he is taking aim at England in a World Cup semi final.

He hopes England will be more suited to their style of play, but added that recovering from two extended games will be hard.

"I've met quite a few of those players and we know exactly how they're held and perhaps, in the modern era, that would be even crazier. If I had a vote, I would vote for Luka", he said.

Eight of England's 11 goals so far have come via free kicks, corners or penalties, which is four more than any other team and the most since Portugal also scored eight set-piece goals at the World Cup in 1966.

Revisiting his predictions ahead of the upcoming England vs. Croatia semi-final in Moscow, Neville allowed himself a pat on his own back before he urged England supporters to get behind Gareth Southgate's team.

Na eases to five-shot victory at The Greenbrier
Varner shot a four-under 66 on Saturday to tie Kraft at the top entering the final round of A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Defending champion Jon Rahm tied for fourth, while tournament host Rory McIlroy closed with a 71 and tied for 28th.

Kim sets LPGA mark with 31-under total at Thornberry
The affable Kim is the 17th different player to win during the 2018 season and is the sixth player from Korea to win. The New Zealander took 33 putts for the round and hit only five of 14 fairways and 14 greens in regulation.

Trump keeps promoting myth about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation debt
The prime minister said: "NATO is as vital today as it ever has been and our commitment to it remains steadfast". Will they reimburse the USA ?" he said in one tweet .

These two have looked the best two teams in the tournament. "Thank you for your support, I'm happy to see so many people here".

Meanwhile, Croatia's Donna Vekic, who was knocked out of Wimbledon by Julia Goerges of Germany in the fourth round on Monday, said she will be sending "good vibes" to her country's football team in Russian Federation.

"This is really a big day for Croatian sport and football, it is a success that we will remember for generations".

Modric will feature in a midfield that consists of the likes of Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic, while Mario Mandzukic, Ivan Perisic, Mateo Kovacic and Dejan Lovren are just some of the names in a Croatian team expected to be England's toughest test yet.

The absence of Vrsaljko could now leave Croatia's right-hand side vulnerable, with Ashley Young, Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard more than capable of exposing a weakened back line. "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".

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is really fast and his combination with Harry Kane is really unsafe". "I've played against Modric and he's world class ... one of the best there is".
