Vip soccer bets for the World Cup 1/2-final game between Croatia and England
Welcome once again to our vip soccer bets, where we are going to discuss the World Cup 1/2-final game between Croatia and England. This match is going to be played at the Luzhniki Stadium in the capital Moscow. Let’s see what’s going on with these two teams.
Croatia’s way to the 1/2-finals was not an easy one. The Balkan team had to play twice extra time, winning after penalty kicks against Denmark and Russia. Surely this will affect Zlatko Dalic’ team, because his players are already very tired. But this is a World Cup 1/2-final, so you can be sure that they will going to regroup, recover and do their best against the Three Lions.
England also had to play once an extra time game – against Colombia in the 1/8-finals, where they won with penalties. They had much more comfortable game against Sweden, beating the Scandinavians with 2-0 in the regular time. Surely this is going to be some advantage for the English side – they didn’t play extra time in the previous round.
Croatia triumphed over Russia in the previous round, but it happened with some cost. The starting right back of the Vetreni Šime Vrsaljko got injured against Sbornaya, which won’t allow him to feature against the Three Lions. This is a big loss for the Balkan team, because Atletico Madrid’s defender is very influental in the team. This would make the manager Zlatko Dalic make some changes. Most likely Domagoj Vida will be moved to the right back, while the experienced Vedran Corluka will feature as a central defender. Corluka is a little bit slower than he was before, but he’s very experienced, which is going to help him.
England’s manager Gareth Southgate had an injury scare with one of his key midfielders Jordan Henderson. The Liverpool man got a knock during training, but reports are saying that he’s now fit and ready to play in the next game. Most likely Southgate will keep his starting eleven from the game against Sweden, where the Three Lions performed well.
There’s a little doubt that the two midfielders Luca Modric and Ivan Rakitic are Croatia’s most influental players. They are instrumental for the success of the team, bossing the midfield in every game they feature in. Against Russia Rakitic was moved back in a more defensive role, but don’t be surprised if Zlatko Dalic change his position against England. If Marcelo Brozovic returns to the starting eleven of the Vetreni, than Rakitic will be moved once again closer to the opponent’s goal.
The captain of the English team Harry Kane is the World Cup leading goalscorer so far. Tottenham’s striker has scored 6 goals in the tournament so far, being very important for his team. Playing upfront with Raheem Sterling, Kane is ready to impress and inspire his teammates for the big step the whole nation is expecting.
It’s a special feeling for Croatia, because they have never played at a World Cup final so far. They know that they are just one step away from making a history. If these players reach the final in Moscow, they will be remembered forever.
The same could be said about the English team as well. The Three Lions are trying to reach their first final since 1966, when they won the tournament. The whole nation is expecting great things from this team and everybody is dreaming.
These are our vip soccer bets for the World Cup 1/2-final game between Croatia and England at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. It shall be a spectacular match. Good luck!
