Hosts Russia play Croatia in a World Cup quarter-final match at the Fisht Stadium on Saturday.

If fans keep their fingers crossed and pray for a miracle, England may play in the final in Moscow on Sunday, July 15 at 4pm.

Croatia's successful run in the 1998 World Cup in France, when they finished third, has been something of a burden for the generations that followed, but the current group in Russian Federation could even surpass them, defender Dejan Lovren said on Thursday.

Emil Forsberg was the hero for Blue-Yellow as he scored the only goal of the match which helped Sweden overcome European side Switzerland 1-0 on Tuesday.

Neymar's Brazil crashed out of the World Cup on Friday, failing to erase the pain of their humiliation on home soil four years ago as Belgium beat them 2-1 to set up a semi-final against France.

Aaron Finch posts record-breaking T20 knock against Zimbabwe
A slew of records tumbled as Australia destroyed Zimbabwe by 100 runs in the T20 tri-series at Harare Sports Club on Tuesday. Finch held the previous record of highest individual knock when he made 156 against England at Southampton in 2013.

With a busy schedule, here is our guide on how to watch every second of the action.

Kick off for the final match of the 2018 World Cup is scheduled for 4pm. Both teams are coming off huge wins as Uruguay ousted Portugal 2-1 and France bested Argentina 4-3 to advance to the quarterfinal stage.

As a soccer player and fan of 24 years and counting, I get excited about every World Cup-even the ones that the USA men's team can't manage to qualify for (still too soon?). Both sides can score, but the question is whether Belgium can finally become a big team by defeating Brazil. They have created their own story and made history.

Belgium's "Golden Generation" that has stars like Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku will face their sternest test yet, when they take on the world's favorite football team, Brazil.

Japan was up 2-0 with 25 minutes left over the heavily favored Belgium team.

This might be the title of the fourth Avengers movie. Say, whaaatt???
There's definitely scope for more adventures with odd though, especially given the Mordo tease at the end of the first movie. We'll see at that time, the major turning point that makes Doctor Strange and the plan of phase 4 of Marvel .

But after a bright start from Tite's team, it was Belgium who looked the more unsafe, scoring through a Fernandinho own goal in the 13th minute and increasing their lead with a superb De Bruyne strike just after the half-hour.

Les Bleus triumphed in the aforementioned win over Argentina, and Brazil edged past Mexico 2-0 at the Samara Arena.

You couple that with the fact that the Swedish defense leads the World Cup in blocked shots-and it makes this match appear a lot more interesting than the line bets are letting on. This gives reason for teams unlucky in the past like England, Brazil, Belgium and Colombia to now dream and live on in hope that their tournament could bear more meaningful fruit.

We know what to expect from the hosts - although their win over Spain on penalties was one of the results of the tournament, they basically played anti-football to get it.
