Croatia will be our toughest opponent so far- Gareth Southgate

England manger Gareth Southgate has warned that England's semi-final against Croatia will be his side's toughest test at the World Cup so far.
England play Croatia in Moscow on tonight with a place in only their second major tournament final on the line.

Their opponents can count on Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic, and Southgate clearly respects the talent in the Croatian ranks.

He said: "They'll be the best team we've played in terms of what they're capable of doing with the ball, and what their individuals are capable of, definitely. For us as a team, it's another chance to create a small piece of history. We've got to keep getting over those hurdles and I know we talked about the success of the younger teams but this is a much harder, much bigger level for the players and the belief is building as things are happening. The more of these tests we can come through, the better, not just for now, but moving forward."
