Croatia's players celebrate at the end of the penalty shootouts of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup quarter-final football match between Russian Federation and Croatia at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi.

How they got there France made smooth work of beating Uruguay 2-0 in their quarter-final, with Raphael Varane and Antonie Griezmann the goalscorers.

The only predictions that Neville has gotten wrong so far are Portugal to beat Uruguay, Switzerland to overcome Sweden and Spain advancing against hosts Russian Federation in their round of 16 fixtures.

Pochettino this year claimed Alli was the best young player in the world, while Sir Alex Ferguson once described him as being the best young midfielder since Paul Gascoigne, who played in England's previous World Cup semi-final appearance in 1990.

For a country like Croatia, with a population of little over four million, to be in the semi-finals of the World Cup is a remarkable achievement.

To top it off, the most important games are yet to be played.

The two sides are evenly matched, so it's a hard one to call, but the Red Devils were perhaps a little fortunate to only concede one goal against Brazil, who spurned several promising opportunities and were controversially denied a penalty.

"They have been playing at an extremely high level for their clubs". However, it is not all doom-and-gloom for Les Bleus as they recorded victory on home soil in 1998. We want those who are 100 percent match fit.

Here, Press Association Sport details everything you need to know about the Les Bleus.

Belgium have impressed against everyone they have played, and even when they did slip, going two down to Japan in the second round, they had the goal power to fight back and triumph. Of the tournament's star players, Romelu Lukaku has performed as strongly as we expected him to. When Gareth came in it was the first time we relived it.
