England have not been in a World Cup semi-final since 1990 and the chants around the Country are ‘It’s Coming Home’.
Well, in order to make the final step to have a chance of this happening, England have to get past Croatia.
After a superb 2-0 win over Sweden with all departments on the pitch were on fire, there is huge confidence in the squad to get past a stubborn Croatia side. Pickford in goal has been superb; Stones and Maguire look very solid and chipping in with goals.
Henderson and Alli are dominating the midfield and super striker Kane has been lethal in front of goal.
For Croatia, it’s back to back wins by penalties, which must take it’s toll at some stage. Although the midfield has world class talent in Rakitic and Modric, elsewhere on the pitch there are weaknesses England can exploit.
With a team who are brimming with confidence, it’s England all the way in this semi-final.
Our best bet is to tip up a repeat 2-0 correct score in favour of England at 8/1.
Although he didn’t score against Sweden, we fancy Harry Kane to open the scoring in the semi-final and this can be backed at 16/5.
Good luck with your bets.
