In England too, World Cup fever has been building with Gareth Southgate's young team on the cusp of reaching the country's first World Cup since they won it on home soil in 1966 .England are in the last four of a major tournament for the first time since Euro '96, when Southgate himself missed a penalty in a shootout defeat against Germany.Croatia are wary of the threat posed by England captain Harry Kane, who is the tournament's leading scorer with six goals so far.The experienced Croatian team is led by arguably the player of the tournament so far, Luka Modric.Captain Eden Hazard shone at times but Kevin De Bruyne was quiet and Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku was a shadow of the player he had been earlier in the tournament, even though Belgium enjoyed most of the possession.
