Croatia - England Prediction, Picks and Tips
Croatia finished a beautiful dream, a wonderful host adventure. Rakitić threw the charges of Stanisław Czerczesow overboard with the last shot from the penalty spot. For Croatia it was the second promotion in the same style. The Balkan team first dismissed Denmark and then Russia after the penalty shoot-out. The national heroes are all Hrvatska players, but Danijel Subasić was the biggest. Golkiper AS Monaco defends the penalties as inspired and it is him who should thank his colleagues for the promotion. The charges of coach Dalić are a monolith and that is their main strength. Experienced players, supplemented by a few younger colleagues, created a team written by the large D. Modrić, Mandzukić or Rakitic, they know very well that it may be the last such big tournament for them and, as you can see, they will say goodbye to the World Cup very well.
On the other side, we also have a team whose greatest strength is the strength of the team. Gareth Southgate bet only on Premier League players. He got rid of old stars, which are often formless, and he took simply outstanding league players on the Mundial. Such a selection paid off, because after many years, the sons of Albion reached the medal club! What's more - the English have the top scorer of this tournament all the time. He is of course Harry Kane with six goals in his account. We have two teams with similar characteristics - their strength is primarily a team game. The Croats are a bit more strength, the technical English, but in the semifinals of the World Cup the most important is the mentality and the number of forces. This second factor will be on the side of the "islanders", because Hrvatska played after two extra times and a series of eleven in a row. So we are betting on England, but if extra time and then penalty, let's be sure that Subasić will be the top!
England lost 1 match in this tournament - with Belgium. Both teams lose on average less than 1 goal per match. Both score an average of over two goals per match. Croatia in the knockout phase has only been tied in during the regular time of the game.
