One matchup England will look to exploit involves Dejan Lovren, as he will have to go up against Harry Kane, who is now in line to win the Golden Boot at this summer's World Cup.

England game today is scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m. ET.

After falling short for generations, coach Gareth Southgate has put together a team that is playing like a team. Croatia enters this must-win 2018 World Cup match at +230, while a draw in regulation is +220.

Cüneyt Çakır will be the referee for the semi-final World Cup match between England and Croatia.

On a serious note, Kerr's expertise, knowledge and passion for the game is second to none and as we've previously stated, it's criminal that he doesn't have a position within the FAI - read into that what you will.

But he is hopeful he has recovered well ahead of the semi-final against Croatia tonight. England was victorious, 4-2, in a group stage match at Euro 2004.

Kane, who tops the Golden Boot standings in Russian Federation, had already scored and assisted as Spurs recorded a 4-1 victory in October. The Tottenham man, who wears the captain's armband for his country, is the top marksman in the tournament with six goals but in addition to his goal-scoring nous, Kane is also a willing runner and a very hard worker for his team.

England has looked strong at set pieces - eight of their 11 goals have come from set plays, including three penalties - and will have noticed that Croatia conceded from a free-kick in extra-time against Russian Federation.

The Three Lions have been rewriting their history during the tournament, winning a first penalty shootout at the World Cup and reaching the semifinal of soccer's most important competition for the first time since they lost to West Germany in 1990.
