He said: "It's not a worry, all teams concede chances, the same goes with Brazil, France and Belgium".

Modric has scored twice in Russian Federation, including a fabulous goal in the 3-0 win over Argentina in the group stage, and twice netted in nail-biting penalty shootouts against Denmark and Russian Federation. "It is so special to do something with the national team", he said.

On a scorching Saturday that saw England advance further in the World Cup than the home of the handsome game has since 1990 and Croatia take down a dynamo, Russian Federation was on seemingly everyone's lips yesterday - and we don't mean Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation of Donald Trump and the adjoining array of Congressional committees.

There has been a lot of talk about Raheem Sterling but he's never hidden at this World Cup, never stopped running nor stopped giving his all.

"He deserves all the accolades he gets from the media and public".

Croatia could be without two of their first-choice rearguard ahead of their World Cup semi-final against England.

By his standards, Harry Kane had a relatively quiet afternoon but he worked hard, was efficient, holding the ball up well and drew plenty of fouls again. Especially when you're in the quarter-finals, where every team is a good team.

But having seen Croatia hold off Argentina superstar Lionel Messi and Denmark talisman Eriksen, conceding once in those two games, Dalic is optimistic they can do the same against Kane.

How LiAngelo's affiliation with the Ballers will help turn LaVar's vision into reality is unclear at this point. If you're not playing hard, you get sent home", LaMelo said.

But this is a player whose reputation took a battering at home before the tournament due to his implication in the multi-million-euro corruption trial of former Dinamo Zagreb chief Zdravko Mamic. The offence carries a penalty of up to five years in jail.

One man who did get a goal was Dele Alli.

Dalic, 51, singled out the tournament's top-scorer and Raheem Sterling as potential threats for England, but added that his team were not anxious.

Croatia have needed penalties to get through the last two rounds against Denmark and hosts Russian Federation whereas England swept Sweden aside.

"We took a hard route. We were unlucky at previous tournaments but now we are collecting those debts this year", said Modric after Saturday's win over Russian Federation in Sochi.

Vardy has started only once for England on their run to the last four, in their final group game against Belgium.

The team landed in Moscow just after 3:30 pm CET on Sunday after a memorable night in Sochi beating the hosts Russian Federation.

The England captain's form comes off the back of his first ever 30-goal Premier League season, and Walker was effusive in his praise for the prolific striker.
