England got off to a hot start in its World Cup semifinal match against Croatia on Wednesday. But England has not been in the final since 1966, when it won its only World Cup title.

England's run to the World Cup final would be, on paper at least, one of the easiest since Federation Internationale de Football Association began ranking worldwide teams in 1993.

Jenas and Modric played in midfield together at Spurs, though the Croatian has gone on to hit even greater heights, winning the Champions League four times and La Liga once with Real Madrid.

Thousands of England fans have hit the streets of Moscow ahead of tonight's crunch semi-final clash with Croatia. "I think it's going to be incredibly loud in any bar we end up going to for the match". After the strangely subdued atmosphere of the quarter-final victory against Sweden in hard-to-reach Samara, the atmosphere inside the tournament's biggest stadium was electric.

However, vandals "cut" the tip of Cherchesov's finger after Russian Federation lost to Croatia on Saturday.

Many England fans were waiting for the result of the semi-final before shelling out. "I think France will win the title".

"Trippier, Maguire, Jordan Pickford, I would put those three in a category where, before the tournament, I was thinking, 'Can they step up?" 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. It's a decision he will not now have to make.
