England vs. Croatia: Southgate Urges Team To Create History

Gareth Southgate

Both of those runs ended in defeats on penalties, but there is a belief that something could be different this time.

England's last, and only, World Cup victory was in 1966.

Can Southgate now become the first manager to win a World Cup semi-final with England on foreign soil as he bids ultimately to match the achievement of Alf Ramsey's side?

Stars of the music industry were full of praise for Gareth Southgate and his youthful team's performance over the tournament. Kieran Trippier has given England a 1-0 lead with a fifth-minute free kick in the World Cup semifinal against Croatia.

Asked what he would be demanding from his players, the England coach told ITV: "To be able to keep doing what we have been doing, play with real defensive discipline, good organization, tactical awareness and then with the ball play with the freedom and expression that we have and the same patterns and movements that we have shown".

Keane replied: 'I don't mind you being happy, but you were getting carried away.

After a night of drama, England found a way to stay in the World Cup. England on the other hand defeated Colombia on penalties in the last 16, but recorded a convincing 2-0 win over Sweden in the quarter-finals.

'Before the game, the whole talk was about the final, ' Keane began.

He did not give in to the temptation to bring in Eric Dier and place himself alongside Henderson in a deeper, double pivot at the base of midfield to cope with Modric and Ivan Rakitic who have been the most accomplished pairing at this World Cup.

Real Madrid playmaker Modric has excelled at times in Russian Federation, both on the ball and in terms of his leadership qualities.

England's Marcus Rashford covers his face after losing the semi final.

"There is still a lot to play".

"It's the best opportunity that England's ever had, and probably might ever have", England defender Kyle Walker was quoted as saying by the FIFA's official website.

Then, it's the World Cup Final - France vs. Croatia in Moscow at 3am Monday morning. But there is less pressure on them now.

The Belgian has the third and fourth place match to play after having succumbed to France in the first semi-final on Tuesday, but, Kane will be keen to cement his position when he takes on Croatia on Wednesday. "We've got the glory in our sights", she said.

For Croatia full-back Sime Vrsaljko looks set to miss out through injury.

England had no answer - neither on the field as their passing game was replaced by hasty clearances and long balls forward nor on the bench as Southgate was unable to make the switches that might have changed the game.

The semi-final match of the 2018 Football World Cup between Croatia and England will be LIVE telecast on Sony Ten 2/Sony Ten 2 HD (English), Sony Ten 3/Sony Ten 3 HD (Hindi) and Sony ESPN (Bengali, Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu) TV channels.
