Dejan Lovren and Harry Kane could be a key battle on Wednesday says Jamie Redknapp

After making history with England's first-ever penalty-shootout win at a World Cup against Colombia, the Three Lions did what many of their predecessors would have failed to do-get through a quarter-final against a team of Sweden's calibre in relative comfort.

The goalkeeper struggled with a muscle injury during Croatia's quarter-final victory over Russia, Subasic needing treatment in extra-time before a heroic performance in the penalty shoot-out.

"But he is a world class player and he is extremely effective for his country, for his club, and he has been one of the best players here at the World Cup so far".

Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic tweaked an existing hamstring problem in the closing stages of Croatia's win over Russian Federation, though played on regardless and even made a crucial stop in the penalty shootout.

Their one defeat came against Belgium in their final group game, in a match between two essentially reserve sides.

Modric is Croatia's creative fulcrum and the effectiveness of the Real Madrid playmaker in Moscow will be integral to his nation's hopes of reaching the World Cup final for the first time.

It might sound a stretch, but some England fans want matchday in Moscow dubbed "Waistcoat Wednesday" in tribute to manager Gareth Southgate, who has taken to wearing a waistcoat on the touch-line along with suit pants and a dress shirt and tie.
