The World Cup 2018 has been a fantastic spectacle thus far, and we have nearly reached the climax of the tournament – but first comes the two semi-finals.
The first will see France meet Belgium as two of the World Cup’s best teams come head-to-head in what promises to be an entertaining affair.
Meanwhile, England reached the semi-final of the World Cup 2018 for the first time in 28 years after they defeated Sweden 2-0.
The Three Lions reached their third semi-final after the World Cups in 1966 and 1990 with goals from Dele Alli and Harry Maguire.
Gareth Southgate’s men will now face Croatia in the World Cup 2018 semi-finals on Wednesday 11 July 2018 after the Croats beat hosts Russia on penalties in a dramatic affair.

France and Belgium were also amongst the teams tipped to win – however, Croatia and England have defied expectation to reach the last-four.
England are now the second favourites to win behind Les Bleus – here are the odds below.
