Yesterday France put Belgium to the sword in an entertaining 1-0 game. Today it's England vs. Croatia. This is Croatia's second trip to the semis, the first being a Davor Suker-led squad that fell to Lillian Thuram and France in 1998. England hasn't made it this far in the semis since they lost to West Germany in Italy in 1990.
Croatia could be tired after playing two consecutive extra-time games. England could be in jeopardy because their perpetual black cloud of bad luck has yet to smite them in this World Cup.
This has been a really entertaining tournament. Here's hoping for another crackling game.
