Henderson hopeful on fitness for World Cup semi-final

Head to The Roadhouse in Covent Garden

This trend has powered the rise of teams that traditionally do not do well in World Cups.

Vardy was an unused substitute in England's quarter-final win over Sweden on Saturday after picking up a groin injury last week.

England, meanwhile, reached the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years with the help of eight goals from set-pieces, more than any other side in the tournament, including three penalties.

Sterling was a key part of the Manchester City side that won the Premier League last season, but he has been less effective in England's charge to the last four for the first time since 1990.

Stones, and his defensive partners Harry Maguire and Kyle Walker, will need to be on their toes for the whole game against Croatia's lone striker, particularly when the ball flies into the area from a set piece.

Widow of Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo leaves China for Germany
It's also a big win for Germany, one of the few countries allowed to send a doctor to China past year to examine Liu Xiaobo. He was later released but remained closely monitored, according to friends of the family, and is still in China.

Jordan Henderson hopes to be fit to play in England's World Cup semi-final against Croatia on Wednesday.

"We will have to improve on our set-piece defending between now and Wednesday".

"At the beginning of working together with the lads and trying to sell them the vision of what's possible, what we're looking to achieve in the long-term. We'll just have to assess the bodies", said Southgate.

Captain and top scorer Harry Kane added: "Allan does finishing sessions with us, tells us about opposition defenders, goalkeepers, and tells us maybe where we can exploit a weakness". Simply place a wager on the full-time result market and if your team goes two goals up at any stage, you will be paid out in full - regardless of the final score.
