Steven Gerrard says England will beat Croatia and are a 'dangerous' team

Dejan Lovren insists his poor performance against Harry Kane and Tottenham Hotspur in October has no relevance ahead of Croatia's World Cup semifinal with England on Wednesday.

Harry Kane has been England's focal point in the World Cup.

The second semi-final between England and Croatia will start at 6am tomorrow.

England have also conceded four goals. First win on penalties in the World Cup.

"We've had the chance to make a difference". I felt something odd in my knee and after talking with the doctor on the sideline we decided I should come off.

After making history with England's first-ever penalty-shootout win at a World Cup against Colombia, the Three Lions did what many of their predecessors would have failed to do-get through a quarter-final against a team of Sweden's calibre in relative comfort.

Defender Dejan Lovren dismissed suggestions that the team would be exhausted after extra time and two penalty shootouts in their last two match matches. Thuram scored the go-ahead goal with a curling shot in the 70th minute, and France won 2-1.

For those unfamiliar (do we really need to explain this?), this basically means that the victor of a game remains the champion until they are beaten by another challenger, who then automatically inherits their title. We will look for the best solutions ahead the match, considering we have a few players with minor issues after the match against Russian Federation.

"I am perfectly ready and fit and I can say the same for my team-mates".

"This is maybe a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity". Croatia required a pair of penalty shootouts to advance, eking by Denmark and host Russian Federation on spot kicks to reach the last four, with Ivan Rakitic scoring the clincher in both matches.

Hazard shone at times but Kevin De Bruyne was quiet and Manchester United striker Lukaku was a shadow of the player he had been earlier in the tournament, even though Belgium enjoyed most of the possession.

In delirious scenes in Paris, fans let off fire crackers and released smoke flares - and predicted they would win a second World Cup.

Where else would you get lines like "For a fella that once played as a banger for Real Madrid in a Copa Del Rey match, he certainly banged that one in", "looks like he's banjo'd now alright", or the utterly brilliant "he went down like a big whinge-bag". "We´ll repeat that this Sunday", said one supporter, Sebastien, as the crowd chanted: "We´re in the final!"
