"They showed from the games I've seen so far that they play direct football and they are very fast".

- Why has World Cup been full of surprises?

While England literarily strolled through their match against Sweden, they look favoured to win the highly anticipated match.

England will face Croatia on Wednesday in their first World Cup semi-final match since 1990.

Cristiano Ronaldo rejects huge Chinese Super League contract offer
Juventus have emerged as surprise frontrunners to sign the 33-year-old this summer following reports that he is unhappy at the Bernabeu and eager for a new challenge.

With the pace of Sterling and others offering a threat from open play on top of England's nearly unrivalled threat from set pieces-they've scored eight from dead-ball situations in Russia-the Three Lions might just have the decisive edge in what should be a tight game. "I am sure we'll be looking at ourselves more than the opposition but they're a top team and they thoroughly deserve to be in the semifinal, as do we".

It might even end with an England-France final.

England emerged Champions in the 1966 edition of the World Cup which they hosted and have played in only one semi-final appearance in 14 tournaments.

But in an unusual World Cup in which world champions Germany fell at the group stage, Spain and Argentina in the last 16 and five-time champions Brazil in the quarter-finals, none of the four remaining teams seem overly burdened by history or exaggerated expectations.

How they got there Croatia after winning Group D with a 100 per cent record have had to grit their way through the knockout stages with penalty shoot-out wins over Denmark and hosts Russian Federation.

England have enjoyed a fantastic campaign and, following Saturday's 2-0 defeat of Sweden, only Croatia stand between Southgate's men and Sunday's final in Moscow.

Croatia did get some revenge for that by ensuring England failed to qualify for Euro 2008 in November 2007 with a 3-2 win at Wembley Stadium.

Overall, 42% of goals in the World Cup have come from set plays or penalties, beating the previous record of 36% from the 1998 World Cup.
