Comeback kings Croatia have unfinished business at the World Cup

ENGLAND FAN

Messages have come in from all corners of the world as Croatia, a nation of just 4 million people, look to play in the World Cup final.

England scored their first goal within ten minutes of the first half.

Croatia take on England in the second semi-final of the World Cup. France has been one of the most complete sides in the tournament, topping Belgium in the semifinal round.

Some fans have even called for the manager to be knighted after bringing the team so close to glory.

Croatia looked vulnerable from set-pieces against Russian Federation, conceding the equaliser in extra-time via a set-play, so this is an area England can exploit.

Though the initial goal for the GoFundMe was $15,000, the campaign has already surpassed $43,000 and is trending on the site. Rodriguez, who doesn't understand English, still has no idea why he was attacked, his grandson, Erik Mendoza, told KCBS .

France's forward Kylian Mbappe runs with the ball during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup semifinal football match between France and Belgium at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in Saint Petersburg on July 10, 2018.

The atmosphere at half-time at Odsal stadium as fans watch the match on the big screen is electrifying. The BBPA hasn't put out its predictions for the possibility, though the group has said all of the matches so far have led pub patrons to create an approximately $160 million boost to the United Kingdom economy.

The winners of Wednesday's game will face France in the final at 1500 GMT on Sunday.

"When England played Colombia we noticed traffic levels drop by about a third, so we're anticipating similar on Wednesday", said Frank Bird, an emergency planning officer at Highways England.

"If you're on the road please drive safely and keep your focus on the journey".
