World Cup semis: Croatia look to Modric to carry them through vs England
Croatia meet England in a World Cup semi-final on Wednesday in Moscow. 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. The biggest question mark now surrounds the fitness of a team who have gone the full distance in their last two matches and had several players struggling with injuries against Russia. Croatia look to master Luka Modric to carry them through against England. The 32-year-old has been outstanding in his team’s run to a semi-final against England in Moscow on Wednesday, picking up the man-of-the-match award in three of Croatia’s five matches. This will be England’s first World Cup semi-final since 1990. (Video: SNTV).
