Pogba dedicates France semi win to rescued Thai boys

A victory over Croatia would spell England's first World Cup final match since its only championship victory in the tournament back in 1966.

Croatia's roster and team profile are here.

Police warned England football fans on Monday not to repeat the "shocking behaviour" that followed Saturday's World Cup quarterfinal win over Sweden.

"This is in stark contrast to the [England] fans out in Russian Federation, whose behaviour, apart from a couple of minor incidents, has been great". Among the spectators watching in St Petersburg was Pamela Anderson (inset), girlfriend of Adil Rami.

Alli picked up an injury in England's opening group match against Tunisia but seemed to be finally returning to top form in the quarter final match versus Sweden, heading home his side's second goal as England ran out 2-0 winners.

France midfielder Paul Pogba dedicated his side's World Cup 1-0 semi-final win over Belgium to the 12 Thai boys who were rescued from a flooded cave along with their coach on Tuesday.

After his team fell behind, Martinez took off Dembele and pulled De Bruyne back into central midfield, and though Belgium did not get a goal, they controlled the play better and created more chances. But I'm my own biggest critic.

"You want to be the best person as well as being a good player", added Alli. "She's helped us in the same way throughout the whole tournament, it's never changed depending on how far we've come or depending on the magnitude of the games".

"We had to take advantage a bit more in the counter-attacks, but congratulations to my players and my staff".

However they have gone nearly all the way in 2018 - and as some fans lifted replica World Cups high on Tuesday night, they will hope the players are doing the same in Moscow this weekend.

"When you have such a solid foundation, you have the basics and clear understanding of what we want to do and achieve, it's not a surprise that it's going well for us".

"I won't be focusing on trying that, but it would be great to repeat it again".
