England vs Croatia Mario Mandzukic insists his team have what it takes to beat England’s No 1
12 July, 2018, 02:37
"It will be an attacking game with goals as both teams can't really defend, but it is unlikely to be three shoot-outs in a row for Croatia".
That caution proved to well founded as Mario Mandzukic's extra-time victor fired Croatia into Sunday's final against France as England's expense in a tense semi-final in Moscow, with Keane biding his time before revisiting his previous discussion with Wright. Ivan Perisic tied the score in the 68th minute.
Perisic almost scored a second goal just minutes later, as he latched onto the ball following a defensive lapse before striking the post with his shot. After continually increasing the pressure on the Three Lions, Sime Vrsaljko's pinpoint cross was met by Ivan Perisic, who snuck in to level from close range.
Vrsaljko cleared a John Stones header off the line midway through the first extra period.
England are likely to start the game as slight favorites, but Southgate warned his team that Croatia will provide their hardest challenge of the tournament thus far.
In keeping with his even-handed and calm style, Southgate said his team were neither complacent nor too pumped up for Wednesday's clash at the Luzhniki Stadium, England's first World Cup semi-final since 1990.
The best chance for a second Englandgoal was wasted by an unmarked Jesse Lingard when he curled wide when a goal looked certain.
"All the celebrations and the songs they're singing back home, it inspires us as players to be able to sort of bring the nation together and put smiles on people's faces".
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. Perisic was mightily unlucky not to add to his tally when his angled shot beat Pickford but cannoned off the post.

Croatia is showing the world that their 1998 golden generation - a side that also went to the World Cup semifinal - was not an aberration and that the country can produce top-level soccer talent to compete with the world's best. Kieran Trippier has given England a 1-0 lead with a fifth-minute free kick in the World Cup semifinal against Croatia.
Trippier's free-kick was not only his maiden Englandgoal but was his first goal of any kind since he scored for Tottenham against Watford on February 6, 2016 - 886 days ago.
The contribution of Raheem Sterling remains a polarising debate in England, with the Manchester City player without a goal for his country since October 2015, but Southgate says the forward's contribution in Russian Federation has been essential.
Croatia's legs at the start seemed to carry the weight of so many minutes in the knockout stage, and a pressing England went up quickly.
