Croatia Hero Faces Sanctions After Politically Charged Video Emerges

Croatia is in the World Cup semifinals for the second time and first since 1998 when they first entered the competition following the break-up of Yugoslavia. "The teams who are hard-working, who are compact and united, these are the teams that are still here".

Croatia in the World Cup semifinal?

Subasic's four shootout saves are tied with Harald Schumacher of West Germany and Sergio Goygochea of Argentina for the most in a single World Cup.

Russian Federation were awarded a free-kick after Josip Pivarić handles the ball and the World Cup hosts get their equaliser. The favourites, the big teams are home.

Kylian Mbappe and co will fancy having fun with Belgium's defence.

How they got there Croatia after winning Group D with a 100 per cent record have had to grit their way through the knockout stages with penalty shoot-out wins over Denmark and hosts Russian Federation.

When they face England, both sides will already know whether France or Belgium have reached the final.

China PM warns 'China will take measures in response' to tariffs
And Beijing's tactics may go beyond tariffs to include arbitrary quarantines and a costly uptick in customs inspections. The US trade deficit in goods with China ballooned to a record $375.2 billion past year , further stoking Trump's ire.

Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subasic was a shootout hero for a second consecutive match after persevering through an apparent hamstring injury he picked up in the second half.

In extra time, Subasic blocked and smothered Daler Kuziaev's attempt, which appeared to be a game-saver until Fernandes came unmarked on a free kick and his header to the far post couldn't be stopped in the 115th minute.

On a scorching Saturday that saw England advance further in the World Cup than the home of the handsome game has since 1990 and Croatia take down a dynamo, Russian Federation was on seemingly everyone's lips yesterday - and we don't mean Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation of Donald Trump and the adjoining array of Congressional committees.

They must recover quickly from a draining night before facing England, who were 2-0 winners over Sweden earlier on Saturday.

Part of Croatia's problem has been capitalising on the supply Luka Modric provides from midfield. It's something England must overpower with pace, strength and width when the two nations meet at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Wednesday.

Croatia and England have met in five competitive games in the past with Croatia winning two and England three. He scored four goals, helped to drag a team widely expected to crash out at the group stages to within a penalty shoot-out on the semis and shone throughout.

A narrow 1-0 win for England, probably from another set-piece, puts Gareth Southgate's men in the final.
