England have defeated Sweden 2-0 and qualified for the semi-final in style. Now it is time for Croatia to take on the hosts Russia in the last quarter-final to book a place in the semi-final against England.

With less than an hour to go for the match, the official line-ups are out and we have a look at them.

Croatia have fielded a very attacking line-up as they have benched midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, and have opted to play with four forwards. Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric will play behind those forwards as Danijel Subasic starts In goal.


Russia have made the expected change as their star Denis Cheryshev is back in the starting 11 after missing out in the last match. Rest of the team remains the same.
