The two sides have not played each other since September 2009, but there does seem to be a pattern throughout the seven matches they have played.

Sunday French paper Le Journal du Dimanche also devoted several pages to the friendship and rivalry between the two countries and attached an excerpt from an Asterix comic book showing a dispute between Belgian and Gallic chieftains. "We've already accomplished something big, but we want to achieve more", he told reporters. Suker is now the president of the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) and as the current Croatian crop celebrated, it was he who came first, even before the Russians to the mixed zone with the World Cup official ball in his hand.

"There are no favourites in this World Cup".

The Croatian midfielders have been in imperious form throughout the tournament and will pose a significant threat to the Three Lions during their semi-final clash on Wednesday. "We have succeeded I believe, but it is time to take a step forward".

For the occasion they have decorated their shop, the Taste Croatia deli in Borough Market, with both England and Croatian flags.

Looking cheerful, the players and their manager walked out on stage to roars of "thank you" and "well done" from the crowd. While it is of course never easy predicting the exact score of any given tie, a repeat of the 2-1 win that saw off Brazil is priced competitively at 13.00. He was also a key factor in Madrid's third consecutive Champions League victory in May and has slowly cemented himself as the best midfielder in the world in recent years.

He spent nearly two years out of global football following Russia's group stage exit from the 2016 European Championship but made a surprise return to the national squad in May.

Croatia put in an impressive performance to beat Argentina 3-0 in the group stages, but have looked less than reliable during the knock-out phase of the competition. Maybe, that's why it mightn't happen and one of the sides would end up nicking a 1-0 win.

At the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi, Russia's Cinderella run at the championship tumbled by a 4-3 penalty shootout defeat to their European counterparts in the quarterfinals.

Aldi stores across the country will be shutting on 3pm on July 15 if England make it to the final.
