Now the team's kitman has revealed they were called into action before Saturday's clash with the Swedes, because the shirt prepared for Maguire was the wrong size.

He nailed the semi-finals.

As if there wasn't already enough riding on tomorrow's World Cup quarter-final, David Beckham and Zlatan Ibrahimovic just upped the stakes even more.

This will be a much harder match for England than their previous games, with Croatia's dynamic midfield as well at the back. Can we beat Croatia?

Not many expected Spain to fail to make the final four of the World Cup and even fewer anticipated Brazil crashing out at the quarter-final stage but Gary Neville gets paid the big bucks for a reason.

Croatia in their first ever participation in World Cup got to the semi-finals and eventually came third in the France 1998 edition and also seem poised to make history in Russian Federation.
