So, France had just enough to beat the Belgians. Umtiti from a set piece was enough with both goalkeepers keeping the score down in typical cowardly goalkeeping fashion. Fancy ruining all of those opportunities for lots of lovely goals!
On to today and the Semi the World Cup has been waiting for……
Comparing patron saints, we have St Joseph batting for The Croats….
….and St George for the English.
One nil, England. ☺
For the last few games, it has started to seem like it’s Jordan Pickford’s World Cup. A string of top class saves have kept the barbarian armies at bay.
England have been strongest at dead ball situations and will be hoping that with the firm foundation of being solid at the back, they can match the Croatians in open play as well.
Croatia have an excellent midfield with Rakitic and Modric. Will they be able to lift the rest of the team to reach an unheard of World Cup Final.
Cmon England, do it for Sir Bobby Robson!
