Moscow: Croatia has been surprising with their clinical performance in the FIFA World Cup 2018 and will aim to run for gold when they face England in the semi-final match here on Wednesday. "The Three Lions" on the other hand will push hard to make their place in the finals against France.

For England, it is a chance to reach the final for the first time since their FIFA World Cup winning campaign at home in 1966, more than a generation ago. They reached the last four stage for the last time in Italy back in 1990.

Croatia have had an impressive campaign at this World Cup. They topped an extremely difficult group that included perennial title contenders Argentina, Iceland and Nigeria.
On the other hand, England's progression to the knockout rounds was far more easy -- they defeated inexperienced sides like Tunisia and minnows Panama before losing to an impressive Belgium.
