Why are our predictions certain to succeed?

You could argue Croatia will give the biggest test - not taking seriously that insignificant group game against Belgium - to an England side who have been so inspiring in their performance in Russia and progressed to the semi-finals having beaten Colombia (on penalties after 1-1 aet) and Sweden (2-0).

This is where it gets real for The Three Lions, who last reached the penultimate stage of a World Cup far back in 1990, might feel they have all the chances of winning it this time around than in any previous editions since then. It also accompanies with the fact they are the fresher of the two sides, after Croatia have had two 120-minute games before winning a semi-final spot over against hosts Russia on Saturday.

Interestingly, Gareth Southgate's men had hardly been expected to become the kings of set-pieces but of the 11 goals they have scored so far, eight found the back of the net following dead-ball situations, with Croatia conceding two set-piece goals - could we see another here?

On the other end, the Blazers arguably have the strongest midfield with the trio of Brozovic, Modric and Rakitic supporting wingers Perisic and Rebic - who swept aside Argentina at the group stage - and this is the area England will be most cautious of. Anyway, I think England will be able to find a way to beat Modric and Co. and book their first final since their only appearance there in 1996.
