1:30 PM IST- Croatia are level! Ivan Perisic gets in beyond Kyle Walker to meet Sime Vrsaljko’s cross to level things up.

1:15 PM IST- Dejan Lovren was leaving nothing to chance with Harry Kane looking to extend his lead at the top of goalscoring chart.

12:55 PM IST- MANDŽUKIĆ (CROATIA) IS BOOKED BY THE REFEREE.

12:45 PM IST- The only time both semi-finals have finished 1-0 was back in 2002, when Brazil edged Turkey, while Germany saw off co-hosts Korea Republic.

12:20 PM IST- Collide in the air and you can all too easily come down with a crash! Fortunately, Jordan Pickford and Ante Rebic both walked away fine from this one.

12:10 PM IST- Harry Kane was eventually flagged for offside, he missed the opportunity to put the ball into the back of the net, first drawing a save from Danijel Subasic, before rattling the post from close range.

12:00 AM IST- Croatia have decent possession of the ball, but the scoreboard is not on their side so far. England are a potent threat with their counter-attacks.

11:45 PM IST- Three ex-England strikers were very appreciative of that strike from the Tottenham Hotspur wing-back.

11:38 PM IST- Goal!!!! England are now 1-0

11:37 PM IST- England win a free kick at the edge of the box after Alli is taken down. Trippier takes, bends it over the wall and into the top right corner. What a start for England.

Croatia vs England FIFA 2018 2nd Semi-final is playing on 11 July at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium. Croatia suffered a setback on Monday before the World Cup semi-final against England, when its right-back player Sime Varslaco was ruled out of the July 11 match due to a knee injury. Worslco, who played 39 matches from Croatia, was injured during the match against Russia in the quarter-finals and had to leave the field in the 97th minute. However, Croatia was managed to win the match in the penalty shootout. Walslko, who played for Atletico Madrid, will not be able to play in this match. This could be good news for England because Varsalco had played every match so far. Croatia coach Jalate can place the Dummagh Vita in the right back in their place.
