33 is half of 66 and if this game is half as good as 1966 we’ll be laughing. Admittedly that makes very little sense but 33/1 on England certainly does make sense. Southgate’s troops are only available at 11/8 normally so this is a monster semi final odds boost.

Croatia v England Preview, Stats and Tips, Wednesday 11th July, Moscow, Kick off: 19:00 (UK time)
No player who will take to the turf at the Luzhniki Stadium this Wednesday will have faced an international match of such importance. England last faced a major semi-final during Euro 1996 while Croatia’s only involvement this far into a tournament came during the 1998 World Cup.
Croatia v England Preview
England’s route to the semi-final of this tournament hasn’t been the toughest but it’s not been without its challenges. Tunisia, who had previously drawn a friendly with Portugal, almost held England to a point but were denied by Harry Kane late on. The Three Lions were also made to sweat against Colombia, a game which went to penalties after Southgate’s men conceded from a corner during the 93rd minute. They’ve certainly not minded set pieces this tournament though as only three of their 11 goals have come from open play. Southgate’s work on the training ground has paid dividends so far but will it again this Wednesday?
Croatia will feel far more comfortable defending any free-kicks or corners with both Danijel Subasic and Sime Vrsaljko on the pitch. They are a key pair for Croatia but were in some pain during their last match with Russia. Both are in contention for this clash but there’s a chance manager Zlatko Dalic may not have a full squad to choose from unlike his England counterpart.
The Vatreni were superb in the group stages, particularly when humbling Argentina 3-0 but knockout performances have been rather more dogged. Against both Denmark and Russia, Croatia were held to a draw after 120 minutes and only progressed thanks to being able to hold their nerve during penalties. Will they be tired for this huge showdown?
Get Your Bets On!
Croatia and England have faced four knockout matches between them and three have ended up going to penalties. The only exception was when the Three Lions saw off Sweden last Saturday but Croatia do look like offering a considerably sterner test. There’s not a great deal between the two sides on paper and given how close their matches have been lately a draw is worth backing at nice odds of 21/10 with BetVictor.
Southgate’s men deserved their win against Sweden last time out but Jordan Pickford was rather busy in goal as the England rearguard allowed Sweden several big chances. They’ll tighten up for this match but it’ll be at the cost of attacking freedom.
As a result, this contest should play out similar to England’s test with Colombia or Croatia’s clash against Denmark, meaning under 2.5 goals (8/15, Ladbrokes) is a safe looking bet.
Of course, if you disagree with all that, there is a certain 33/1 England Ladbrokes offer you might be interested in…
