England football team looking serious ahead of their World Cup semi-final game against Croatia

Southgate's men will be hoping to keep their amazing run going as they take on Croatia

Gareth Southgate’s men are on the verge of history, with only Croatia now standing in their way for a place in Sunday’s World Cup Final – their first potentially, of course, since 1966.

Having enjoyed a reasonably comfortable 2-0 win against Sweden, with goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Allli, you could argue that Croatia provide easily England's toughest test so far. We know that Ross Kemp will certainly be cheering them on again!

Croatia feature a host of top names, including former Spurs man Luka Modric, who will fancy his chances of netting a crucial goal.
