England and Croatia are about to fight it out for a slot to the finals and ex-England captain Steven Gerrard says Gareth Southgate’s team have “done the country proud” as he is confident that England’s side will defeat Croatia in their World Cup semi-final.

The Rangers manager Gerrard was featured in seven major tournaments for England but couldn’t progress more than the quarter-finals.

“I’ve been so pleased to watch the players perform,” he said according to Sky Sports.

“I think they’ve done the country proud. It seems with every barrier that gets put in their way, they seem to be getting over it comfortably.

“I think tonight (Wednesday) will be the biggest test for them. Croatia deserves respect, they’ve got some wonderful players.”

Gerrard also believes England are a “dangerous” side and is confident they will set up a World Cup final against France.

“I do predict an England win”, he said.

“I think with the energy, the organisation, the confidence at the moment, England are a force.

“They are capable of going the whole way. England are a dangerous team in this competition.”
