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.

Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier is one of several England players to see his stock rise this summer due to their performances in the World Cup.

Meanwhile, Croatia's first World Cup semi-final for two decades has revived the memories of the country's football high point and raised hopes that Luka Modric's side can go one better than their legendary predecessors.

Here is a look at the semi-finals and what to watch out for.

A number of players across all four teams have already served suspensions in this tournament.

The Croatia right-back was substituted during extra time against Russian Federation in the quarter-finals, with Zlatko Dalic's side going on to prevail in a penalty shoot-out. "Obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament", Kane said after the 2-0 quarter-final win over Sweden.

"I said the same thing before the Colombia game - it's not me getting carried away".

The country selected 11 host cities to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup and they are Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara.

Can we get Shaq to purchase a few of those shirts for Auntie Maxine Waters who chanted "Impeach 45!" to a crowd over the weekend. The call for a Walmart boycott seemingly picked up steam as conservative media outlets spread the word about the shirts.

"We want to make our own history and do great things so to see all the fans and the videos and how emotional it is to them, we want to just keep going and making them celebrate even more".

Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic has identified Raheem Sterling as England's danger man in the World Cup semi-final on Wednesday.

If we had to play two big teams in close succession, that's very hard.

The simulation had previously expected Brazil to face Germany in the final on 15 July, however with Germany defeated in the group stages, this led the model to increase England's chances of making the final match.

"The results were below the level and quality of our players".

"When they were 2-0 down against Japan, sure some of us remained hopeful they could come back".

Having played his club football in Belgium for almost four years (1985-1989), Bwalya can not help but marvel at the transformation of the country's football. "We don't fear England".
