England unchanged for World Cup semi-final v Croatia
England unchanged for World Cup semi-final v Croatia

England have named an unchanged side for their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.

Gareth Southgate has gone with the same team that saw off Sweden 2-0 in Saturday’s quarter-final.

That means the Three Lions will be in a now-familiar 5-3-2 shape.

Meanwhile, Croatia have been boosted by Šime Vrsaljko’s return to fitness.

The defender was injured in their quarter-final win over Russia but makes the team. Goalkeeper Danijel Subašić and striker Mario Mandžukić also seemed to be struggling in that game but play from the start in Moscow.

Croatia have made one change, with midfielder Marcelo Brozović replacing forward Andrej Kramarić.
