Has Croatia ever won the World Cup?

People sit watching wimbledon on the big screen as final preparations are made at British Summer Time event in Hyde Park London where 30,000 football fans are expected to watch England's World Cup semi-final against Croatia Tuesday July 10

However, despite his praise for Croatia, Gerrard believes England are a "dangerous" side, and is confident they will set up a World Cup final against France.

Following incidents of violent behaviour after England's last World Cup game a Hornchurch pub is calling on their customers to reflect the players' efforts on the pitch by enjoying themselves responsibly.

Most residents are confident that the Three Lions will beat Croatia and move one step closer to a shot at silverware. The BBPA hasn't put out its predictions for the possibility, though the group has said all of the matches so far have led pub patrons to create an approximately $160 million boost to the United Kingdom economy. "There's a lot of enthusiasm".

Russia's ministry of communications said there had been 6,300 new applications for fan IDs, the document that allows visa-free entry to Russian Federation during the World Cup, since England beat Sweden in the quarter-final on Saturday. Flights from across Europe on Tuesday and Wednesday were packed with England fans scrambling to make the last-minute trip.

Paul Sealey, who is visiting the area, said: "The team will do all in their power to win".

"I think he's got a massive future and the fact that he's playing so well and he's got that number two shirt now, I think he's going to be there for years to come".

Mia Šetula, a Croatian student at Bournemouth University, admitted she will be cheering for England's opponents tonight.

Ontario woman accidentally steals vehicle from Walmart parking lot
The keys she turned in belonged to a Nissan Infiniti rather than a Sentra, leaving the manager "slightly confused", said police. The owner said he had ducked into Walmart and returned to find his vehicle missing from the parking lot, according to police.

Victory over Croatia would send them into the final as hopes of a repeat of the historic 1966 triumph rise.

She added that she is flying back to Croatia and would be watching the game as part of a joint birthday football celebration.

Nick Colgan, originally from South Yardley in Birmingham, has lived in the country for the past 15 years.

Few more problems for the Croatian side to sort out, they are sweating on the fitness of their full-back Sime Vrsaljko. "Croatia deserve respect, they've got some wonderful players". "I think with the energy, the organisation, the confidence at the moment, England are a force".

Another football fan flying to Croatia to watch the game is James Stephenson, from Winton.

"As a venue we can only take responsibility for so much, and thought a reminder to our customers that they should always enjoy themselves responsibly is important".
