World Cup Semi-Final Game Stats (10th & 11th July 2018)

World Cup Football Tips and Stats

It’s been a cracking World Cup so far but we’ve still a bit more to come!!

We are now at the Semi-Final stage and it’s going to be an all-European affair as Belgium take on the new tournament favourites France on Tuesday night. The nations have met 28 times before with honours virtually even, but the last time they played each other (2015) it was Belgium that came out on top in a 4-3 thriller – more of the same please!

Then onto Wednesday Croatia take on England in what looks to be another fascinating clash. The Three Lions are ranked 14th to Croatia’s 20th, while the last time they faced each other we saw goals galore with England winning that one 5-1.

Plenty to look forward to, so, as always, let’s take a look at the main head-to-head stats.
