I think England will beat Croatia no bother and then will be beaten by France in the final.

Just win, Croatia.
I don't care if it's 12-0 or only 7-1, just put England out of contention and let us all enjoy the finale of what has otherwise been a very good tournament.

eff them.

When Argentina beat them on penalties in 1998 I stood up in front of the TV and told a pub full of them that we should all just move on and enjoy the rest of our day. Admittedly that wasn't universally well received, but I came out unscathed (and happier than anyone else in the pub obviously)

England look very solid and are managing to give other teams problems through set pieces - a wee bit like Portugal two years ago and Greece in 2004, albeit they play slightly better football.

Croatia haven't played well since the knockout stages began, they've looked laboured and disjointed. However, Bilic is of the opinion that the Croatian team plays best when they aren't the out and out favourites, which will be the case in this game.

As it currently stands I think England will get into the final (against Belgium), however, i'm hoping the Croats find their form as they have the far better individuals at their disposal.

The closer it gets, the more confident I am in Croatia. Modric and Rakitic to run riot (hopefully).

Croatia looked terrified in the 2 shootouts, they look seriously under pressure for some reason and if it goes that far don't let modric near one :twitch:

The other 3 teams are playing better than them

England will win this one :(

Modric who has scored both of his in the shootouts? Got lucky the other night but he'll have the most quality on the pitch on Wednesday by a distance, he's still the man you want in that situation.

Not having the terrified line either. They've gone through in them both. You don't do that in penalty shootouts if you're not mentally up to it as a team.

They are in the poorest form, but they've also faced 2 sides who are seriously tough to beat and were a real struggle for them to play against. England are a better side than Russia and Denmark but they're also a better side for Croatia to face as they won't have all of the ball and there will be space for them to exploit. Defending set-pieces will be their biggest challenge, as it will be for any side England face.

He missed one in normal time and that one the other night was a shanner

He's hit 1 good one in 3

He knows he's responsible for their last penalty exit and he's pooping his pants about it

There is just something about Croatia, they don't look like they believe in their right to be there. They play as if they think they're Scotland rather than a squad of gifted players.
