Dier encourages England fans to fly to Russian Federation

Dier encourages England fans to fly to Russian Federation

Croatia and England face off on Wednesday (July 11) at 11.30 PM IST at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

Arguably the favourites on paper to win the title lie on the other side of the draw, with France and Belgium duking it out for a spot in the decider.

Quite a number of councils for example around the United Kingdom are making available large outdoor spaces where fans can watch the match and not be forced to pay anything to do so, and what better way to spend the evening that watching England win, with the weather being as good as it is!

England now meet Belgium in the third-place playoff on Saturday.

"Twenty years ago I was back at home in my hometown and I rooted for Croatia wearing the Croatia jersey", Perisic said. Every match at this World Cup is like that.

"As a player and as a professional I know that I have a job, on and off the pitch, to inspire people and inspire kids watching this tournament".

"We expect a very hard, tight game and demanding match against our opponent England, like in every match at the World Cup", the 32-year-old said. "But Croatia can also cause England problems they haven't had before".

The Blazar defeated hosts nation Russian Federation 4-3 on penalties after 2-2 draw in Sochi on Saturday to set a semi-final clash with England on Wednesday. "We're not the finished article", England manager Gareth Southgate, himself a novice at national level, said. It will be a battle but I trust us, I have belief in us'.

"We have some margin to get even better", 1France coach Didier Deschamps, the 1998 World Cup-winning captain, said. If they play in that way, I'd expect them to have too much for Croatia.

"We still changed the history of the past 28 years". I think for a country like Croatia it is impressive and we want to keep going further.

In that game, Davor Suker's goal in the 46th minute was cancelled out by a pair of strikes from France defender Lilian Thuram at the Stade de France, but Dalic said his Croatian team won't be thinking about that semifinal loss.

I thought England would be going home in the quarter-finals but helped by a handsome draw, I think they will nick this game and make the World Cup final.
