England beat Sweden and Croatia defeat Russia

"Yesterday and today I would have experienced the same feelings towards me, if I were in your place", said Fedor Smolov, sharing the blame for the quarter-final defeat in which he missed a penalty against Croatia.

"But for our national team it's a big achievement". For long their national team hasn't justified their claim that they have the best league in the world.

"Now it's probably the last World Cup for a lot of us", Corluka said.

England to beat Croatia on penalties is now the most backed "method of victory", according to Betfair. "They are still great guys for us, they are heroes", said Peskov.

Sterling did produce an encouraging display in the quarter-final win over Sweden and was a constant threat throughout the 2-0 success in Samara. Denis Cheryshev said the most important thing about the World Cup was that it gave joy to the entire country. A cracker of a contest awaits in an already cracker of a World Cup.

"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".

Following incidents of violent behaviour after England's last World Cup game a Hornchurch pub is calling on their customers to reflect the players' efforts on the pitch by enjoying themselves responsibly.

Lorna Wilkinson, director of nursing at the hospital, said: "While this is welcome news, we are not out of the woods yet". Public Health England have repeatedly said there is no wider threat to the public arising from the Skripal case.

The Duke of Cambridge, who is president of the Football Association, told the Three Lions the whole country is behind them.

"They are really good at set-pieces and their tall players are risky at corners".

"Perhaps people feel they (waistcoats) also reflect in some way this young likeable England side: They're bold, innovative, endearing - a hark back to a more genteel, civilised era", said the Daily Mail.

If the match is to be won in 90 minutes, punters are predicting a 2-1 victory for England, while 65% of bets will be on England to win.

The biggest question mark now surrounds the fitness of a team who have gone the full distance in their last two matches and had several players struggling with injuries against Russian Federation.

Scenes in Zagreb after Croatia qualified for the semi-final. "When you have such a solid foundation, you have the basics and clear understanding of what we want to do and achieve, it's not a surprise that it's going well for us".

Roads will empty during the match, the victor of which will face France in Moscow on Sunday.
