Trump, May get Croatian jerseys ahead of England World Cup semi-final

Such is the interest in England's first World Cup semi-final since 1990 that the system crashed when London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced 30,000 free tickets would be made available to watch the game in Hyde Park via a ballot.

If you are yet to come across or still clueless what the hashtag "It's Coming Home" on your social media newsfeed means, then, we can start all over from Stone Age for you. It's a tough one but I've got to go with my roots and support the Croatian boys.

He also admitted he had reconciled with Baddiel and Skinner's popular football anthem, which was first released to coincide with Euro 96 when Southgate's missed penalty saw England knocked out.

Alfie from Ipswich said he was confident England would make it through to the final. "Suffice to say tonight's going to be a night like no other!" The victor advances to Sunday's final against France or Belgium, which also will be at Luzkniki Stadium.

"It's not the same if you play 90 minutes twice and 120 minutes twice, but I believe we've had ample time to recover and we're professional enough to know who needs what in terms of recovery", he said.

"They've seen we've got good lads who are incredibly proud to play, and are playing in a slightly different style to the one we've seen for a few years - playing with confidence on a big stage". "Sometimes you have to go through hard times and failures to learn and improve", he said. "We were a group of guys having a lot of fun, enjoying our football, learning and improving all the time - and that's what these lads have done". And you know why?

Croatia are in the last four for the first time since 1998 but they had to survive two penalty shoot-outs against Denmark and Russian Federation to make it this far.

"Now I want to go and see what's going on in Russian Federation", said one fan, Michael Roberts, 27, as he waited for his flight. That's why we want our punters to wear waistcoats in tribute to the man himself.

"We're only the second team to reach a semi-final out of our country, and that's quite significant".

Since that Argentina game, Croatia have done just enough to beat Iceland, Denmark and Russian Federation, but Dalic believes that is because they set up to frustrate his side, whereas England's more attacking style could suit them better.
