Modric boasts impressive statistics so far at the World Cup

After falling short for generations, coach Gareth Southgate has put together a team that is playing like a team.

Fox Sports and Telemundo have seen strong ratings for this year's tournament, with Fox building its numbers that so far peaked with a tournament-high 6.32 million tuning in for the Croatia-Russia quarterfinal Saturday on Fox. Odds on England to qualify are 8/13, while Croatia are 5/4.

The whole of England is awaiting the big kick-off on Wednesday night, with the Three Lions just one match away from their first World Cup final since 1966.

It will be the third match his has officiated at the World Cup after overseeing Morocco vs Iran and Nigeria vs Argentina.

Sei Young Kim shatters LPGA scoring records to win Thornberry Creek
She was ranked as high as number eight in the world past year after her win in Mexico and has struggled for much of 2018. The affable Kim is the 17th different player to win during the 2018 season and is the sixth player from Korea to win.

England and Croatia meet today in the second semifinal of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, with the victor advancing to play France in Sunday's final.

If you don't have a TV or prefer to live stream the Croatia vs. England World Cup game for whatever reason, that's slightly more complicated but still possible. "It's something very big for us", said Croatia fan Neman, arriving at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport. "I think with the energy, the organisation, the confidence at the moment, England are a force".

"We have waited for several years for this with Croatia".

Croatia have yet to lose at this summer's World Cup, having blitzed through the group stage with wins over Nigeria, Argentina and Iceland, before edging past Denmark and Russian Federation on penalties.

Man poisoned by nerve agent regains consciousness
Tests confirmed that the couple were exposed to the same nerve agent that poisoned the Skripals. The public should not be alarmed by this.

Following a successful tournament so far, and victories over Tunisia, Panama, Colombia and Sweden, there is a real belief that the Three Lions can now reach the final.

Although there's often outrage in the country when ITV shows a game over the BBC, largely as a result of the ad breaks during halftime, ITV commentators Jon Champion and Ally McCoist have emerged as one of the most popular pairings in a long time.

While Croatia possess arguably the best central midfield pairing in the tournament in Real Madrid's Luka Modric and Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic, Southgate's language does not indicate he is about to bring in Eric Dier as an additional defensive midfielder alongside Jordan Henderson.

Right-back Sime Vrsaljko came off in extra-time during Croatia's quarterfinal victory over Russian Federation and faces a race against time to be fit for the match against England tomorrow. It's going to be a hard task for all of us. "We´ll repeat that this Sunday", said one supporter, Sebastien, as the crowd chanted: "We´re in the final!"
