Croatia great Davor Suker believes his nation's semi-final opponents England were "lucky" to survive their last-16 clash against Colombia at the World Cup.
Southgate's men meet Croatia in the semi-finals on Thursday morning (Singapore time) after ending a 28-year wait to reach the last four.
In England's class of 2018, free kicks, corners and wide crosses are mostly provided by England's wing backs, Young and Kieran Trippier, and they are proving tough to defend.
"I am a bit resentful when people desperate to appear tolerant and broadminded demand that we all show how grown-up and open-minded we are by supporting England", she wrote. I think it's the best opportunity that England's ever had [since 1966] and probably might ever have because, no disrespect to Croatia, but the other side of the group was a lot more hard. Meticulous preparation - including a trip to the United States to take in an National Basketball Association game - the selection of specific players with strong dead-ball delivery, and the defensive nature of high-pressure tournament football has led to a point where set pieces could yet lead England to a second World Cup title. It was a controlled and composed showing against Sweden and we handled everything they threw at us (which wasn't much) and just did everything that was asked of us.
"We've played well, we've played well in the games".
"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is fast and risky alongside Harry Kane", the Croatia coach said at a press conference. I have a lot of friends in England and we know each other well. However, Gareth Southgate, the team's forward-thinking coach, chose to switch formation to a 3-5-2 previous year in an effort to give more security to his defense, enable his midfielders to have more possession, and to get more support for star striker Harry Kane.
Sterling caused Sweden plenty of problems in Samara and although he received more flak from some fans for missed chances, David Beckham is the latest former England player to jump to his defence.
England's 1966 World Cup hat-trick hero Geoff Hurst says Gareth Southgate's young team can match the achievement of Alf Ramsey's men and go all the way in Russian Federation.
"They've been fantastic", said the former Burnley ace.
I genuinely don't think they'll fail the test.
"Raz, he's a nightmare for us defenders", Walker added.
England can win World Cup, says Liverpool legend Rush
It has also been 52 years since England have become the world champions. "We have either England or two more games", he said. Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is the only player in the Croatian team now playing in the English Premier League.
Gareth Southgate might tweak some things tactically, but I don't think that will prove to be that important in deciding the outcome.
