Just two more games separate England and the World Cup title this summer at Russia 2018. That is how close they are. The country can almost taste it. After their intense round of sixteen success against Colombia via their first ever World Cup penalty shoot-out success, the Three Lions then held their composure together so well to take out fellow-Europeans Sweden in the quarter finals. England took a 2-0 win there in Samara.

Next up for the Three Lions on this exciting Russian journey is a game against Croatia. England goes into the game at 11/8 odds* (betting odds were taken from July 7th, 2018 at 8:17 pm to beat Croatia, making them favourites, but without a doubt, this is the best side that they have met at the tournament so far. It would have been Belgium in the group stage, but that was just reserve team v reserve team which England lost 1-0 but that result has worked out for both of them.

There could be a Belgium v England rematch in the final and we could get to see the match up that we were denied in the group stage. Anyway, England are now playing with expectancy more than just on dreams and the reality is, is that they have earned their place in the final four of the World cup when perhaps most would have seen a quarter-final as a realistic stage of exit for them.

Croatia v England odds*

England 11/8
Draw 21/10
Croatia 5/2

Not since England won the 1996 World Cup have they been priced so short to win a World Cup. They are now backable at 11/4 odds with bet365* (betting odds were taken from July 7th, 2018 at 8:17 pm to win the 2018 World Cup outright. Gareth Southgate deserves a lot of credit for his trust in England’s youth and they have delivered energy, passion and commitment to the cause, even if at the end of the day the overall quality level hasn’t been there.

They have found ways to win and that is what matters in a tournament. It’s about the result really and not how they got there. The semi-final against Croatia will present a whole set of new problems for them because they will have the better of the two midfields and there is no way that England are going to be as comfortable in the game as they were against Sweden. This will be another huge test of the young Three Lions side. Can they pass it?
