England are back in the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time in 28 years on Wednesday when they take on Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. A lot has happened since the last time the Three Lions contested a World Cup semi-final, when they were beaten by West Germany at Italia 90. The nation has been gripped by the progress of Gareth Southgate’s men through the tournament, but they face a tough test against a well-organised and classy Croatia side.
