Russia fan looks dejected at the end of the match during their World Cup Quarter Final vs Croatia in Fisht Stadium Sochi Russia

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.

World's Ugliest Dog dies weeks after winning dubious honor
The victor of the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog competition, Zsa Zsa the English bulldog, has died aged 9. They drove 30 hours from their home in California so Zsa Zsa could compete for the crown.

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".
