Well who would have thought it? England are in their first World Cup semi-final since 1990, when Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister, Roxette topped the charts and mullets were still fashionable.
Some of you reading this may not even have been alive at the time but will probably have seen the footage from that semi-final in 1990, with Gary Lineker scoring a fine goal, Gazza crying after being booked and penalty misses from Stuart Pearce and Chris Waddle in the shoot-out.
That was a painful experience for England and is etched in the memory of those that saw it, but today the players have a chance to banish those memories and write a new chapter in England’s history.
Standing in their way are a tough Croatian side who have a world-class midfield pairing of Modric and Rakitic and a team that has shown a great deal of resilience throughout the tournament.
The bookies have England as slight favourites at a best price of 13/10 (2.3 in decimal odds), where as Croatia are priced at 2/1 (3.0) generally.
