England team last night just nailed it everyone with their complete performance against Sweden in the quarterfinals, and now they after 28 years they are in Semifinals and ready to face Croatia next Wednesday.
But huge of credit for this success apart from players will go the team coach Gareth Southgate who tactics working like a miracle for this English Side. It not just he guided England to the Semifinals but also the only third Manager to do, he also made the English team very likeable to see.
In the Euro 2016, when England team were beaten by Iceland under the managerial charge of Roy Hodson in the round of 16 they were shabby looking where no one really stood up to perform, they looked like a very broken underrated side and them same underperformed in 2014 world cup and in 2010 euros.
But has all change now England are favourite to life this year they just have to keep doing what they doing till now in the upcoming two games. Against Croatia, they are clear cuts favourite because Croatia not looks that side who can able to muscle with the England Team. They won of their knockouts games on penalties, last night team like Russia almost knock them out them, England don’t feel any problem in humiliating their defence due to the player Harry Kane upfront, who is the top goal scorer in the world cup till now.
Then England must go as underdogs in the final which any Englishmen just dreamed of happening but now it’s looking happening and they will against one of the tournaments best teams Frace or Belgium. Belgium already beat England in the group stage game and looking at their performance against Brazil its fair to say Belguim will be favourite. If England meet France then also England will struggle against more sublime forward like of Mbappe and Griezman. So, in my Opinion, England will there in finals but not as much to beat France and Belgium in the FInal to beat.
Croatia probably the weakest in all four left in this world cup now, now for them, England is left and no one giving any chance to Croatia to surpass England, because of the performances they showed in knockout where they not as impressive as they in group stages.
In the group stage they somewhat shocked everyone top the so-called group of death consists of Argentina, Iceland and Nigeria, it was the second game against Argentina where they showed what they capable of 3-0 thumping against mighty Messi leading Argentina , but in the Denmark game in round of 16 they had to take the help of penalties to make it through as same happened in the game against Russia.
Croatia has the best midfield in the tournament so far and they performed too, lead by their inspirational Captian Luka Modric and his co-partner Ivan Rackitic they both together made a strong partnership and supply goals to the forward line. But weakness is a defence which is not all impressive in the game against England where their will tested against the speed of Harry Kane by seeing recent performances they not look to able to stop England. Croatia already achieved their best so far surpass expectations any more will be the bonus now so it will right to say that’s it for Croatia England is too much for them to beat.
Before the start of tournament Belgium was expected do something amazing and was called dark of the tournament, and they did prove us all right with the help for from golden generations player in every position of the field. All this made them beating tournament favourite Brazil in last 8 with the complete impressive display of overall team performance.
Ther every player played its part in that victory from Midfield to goalkeeper, their chances are very high but for that they have to deal with as game good team France, which will be amazing game , but I think Belgium having everything to beat France if that play with the same team as they played against Brazil, I make Belgium favourites to through in the final and win the world cup
The most talented side in the tournament showed their class so far, especially in knockout games where they just too much Argentina, young legs like Mbbape and Griezman made France be in Semifinal. Now they will face a level team as Belgium making the game of the tournament
They last won in 1998 in the leadership of Didier Deschamps and he is the manager of the team making a perfect sense that France to lift the trophy, but they will not have smooth against Belgium and it depends on how they perform that day.
