Croatia vs. England    (lost)

After France edged past Belgium in the first semi final the second has Croatia face England which will see the winner face favourites France in the final.

Croatia have has it tough in the knockout stages so far after needing penalties to dispatch Denmark and then hosts Russia. That is two games that have involved 120 minutes of play so the Croatian players could be forgiven for feeling fatigue, especially with not much rest between games. The Croats do deserve to be here though as they have looked good and have the players to cause most teams problems. Modric and Rakitic alone will get in most sides' midfield.

England are on a similar level to Croatia, if not one higher. They are quite rightly favourites here but it's unlikely we'll see a one-sided affair. The Three Lions had a much easier quarter final with a 2-0 victory over Sweden so they should be the fresher side which gives them the slight edge going into this match.

If any side wins in 90 it will likely be England but we could see more extra time with England the most likely side to progress.

Admin - I understand this bet generally isn`t allowed but i think i saw you say somewhere you`re allowing different bets for the WC. I think the `To Qualify` bet is very popular anyway. Apologies if not allowed.

Well we can talk about fatigue cause Croats played 120 in both knockout rounds. But how much that really matters? IMO not much. 1) England played Extra Time once too, so it`s only 30 minutes difference. 2) I saw Modrić running like crazy late in the extra time vs Russia. And not only Modrić but many more players in both teams. So I guess they are all well prepared. 3) This is 2018. Obviously today`s football or sport in general has not much in common with say 80s, or football during 90s. For example, the same injury that would put you out for 6 to 12 months in last century, today would cost you not playing at least half time less. So my point is, when recovering from serious injury is way shorter, you can imagine how much is not a problem recovering from simple fatigue...

I would like to talk much more about teams itself. Where exactly England hold the edge over Croats? I don`t see it to be honest. What more Croatian midfield seems way better. So, if some of the defenders like Lovren or some other guy, doesn`t make some rookie mistake (on this WC he didn`t so far like he knew so many times in Liverpool), then I think the edge is on the Croatian side. But let say it is 50:50. With odds we have, value is on Croatia.

Yes, it is OK for the World Cup.

As i said, this won`t be a one-sided match. It will be very close and could be decided on a huge stroke of luck or brilliance. This is just my opinion but i feel England have generally been more comfortable in their games, they like to dominate possession and when you don`t have possession it`s hard to score so England will probably create more chances and i think offensively they are better. I agree Croatia have a better midfield and i think England`s weakness is their defence. Modric is definitely the player that could do the damage and he`ll probably be the reason if Croatia are to win, we haven`t really faced a Modric yet. England have been great at set pieces so maybe a corner or free-kick could be the difference. Anyway, I always bet on gut instinct and my gut instinct says England will beat Croatia one way or another and France will lift the World Cup :) I respect your opinions though.

From what I’ve seen from Croatia in the last two matches, for me this just can’t be an even game. England did not exceel but Croatia was far from having a decent level.
