We can stop England - Croatia Coach

Croatia Coach Zlatko Dalic believes his side can stop England and get ahead of them into the World Cup final.

So far for Croatia during this tournament, they've been able to stop Argentia, Denmark, Nigeria and even host Nation Russia and their coach believes they can do it again on Wednesday by beating England in the Semi-Final game.

But as it is, one man the Croatian side needs to to be weary of is the England Stiker Harry Kane. The Tottenham star is in top form and might be the man to hurt them.

Dalic has also underline Kane's threat and believe his side have a couple of defenders that can stop him.

'We believe in our strengths,' he said

'We don't fear England. He [Kane] is the top scorer - he's not easy to stop. But we have top centre-backs. We managed to stop Messi and Eriksen so hopefully, we can stop Kane.'

Dalic also spoke about the strength of the England squad and also underline the threat of Reheem Sterling.

'I wouldn't say there are any glaring weaknesses - they are in the semi-finals, that says it all,' he continued

'They showed from the games I've seen so far that they play direct football and they are very fast.'

'They are really good at set-pieces and their tall players are dangerous at corners. I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is really fast and his combination with Harry Kane is really dangerous.'
