World Cup Semi finals: Facts You Need To Know

The two 2018 FIFA World Cup semifinal matches will come up thus: France vs Belgium on Wednesday and Croatia vs England on Thursday in Russia.

France and Belgium are very familiar football enemies, but the two national sides have only clashed two times in the past in World Cup contest.

During their previous encounters, The Blues of France won the games in 1938 (Paris) and 1986 (Puebla, Mexico). Their 1986 titanic clash was a third-place play-off .

Croatia and England will be meeting for the very first time in a World Cup competition.

The two national sides- The Blues and Three Lions, have met seven times in other soccer competitions in the past, with England winning four, Croatia two and a draw.

In European championship matches, Croatia lead 2-1. But the Three Lions of England crushed The Blazers of Croatia in two World Cup qualifying games before the 2010 tournament in South Africa.

It is equally worthy of note that England (1966) and France (1998) have won the world cup, but France also lost the 2006 world cup final to Italy. At any rate, Belgium and Croatia have never won the World Cup championship
