Gary Neville's World Cup predictions are very impressive in hindsight

Gary Neville's World Cup predictions are very impressive in hindsight

A lot of people have this idea that because of how we lost our semi-final in 1990, the result in Samara was an emotional release for me, but it's not just that.

"But we are looking forward to a different style of game against England because they like to play attacking football".

He nailed the semi-finals.

. "And if it's France I think they'll win it".

But there is a major doubt over the participation of Vrsaljko, who hobbled off with a knee injury in extra-time during the quarter-final win over Russian Federation in Sochi.

The World Cup rivalry between the two European Union members dates back to the 1938 World Cup which France hosted and Les Bleus defeated Le Diable Rouge 3-1 in an opening round encounter.

Vrsaljko will now sit out of the semifinal against England on Wednesday, according to Marca, which will be a huge blow for Croatia following his solid defensive displays in the right back slot over the course of the tournament. With his absence, coach Martinez may have to change his formation.


Croatia was missing three key players at training on Monday ahead of Wednesday's World Cup semi-final showdown with England.

Kane is now leading the Golden Boot race at this summer's World Cup with six goals, helping his side to the semi-finals of the competition in the process.

Belgium and Croatia will now be seeking a first World Cup final appearance, while France could reach a third after 1998 and 2006, and England have to go back to Wembley 1966 for their one and only final.

He has already seen his players write their own history with their penalty shoot-out victory over Colombia in the last 16, and who could deny him the feeling that there is more to come?

This will be a much harder match for England than their previous games, with Croatia's dynamic midfield as well at the back. They should beat Croatia. What I would like is the England from before, but now they are very strong and we have to respect them.
