England have nothing to fear against Croatia, says Jamie Redknappsbo666 Jamie Redknapp says England have nothing to fear on Wednesday when they take on Croatia for a place in the World Cup final.England are through to a first World Cup semi-final in 28 years following a comfortable 2-0 win against Sweden in Samara on Saturday.Standing in England's way of a first final since 1966 is Croatia, but Redknapp, speaking to Sky Sports News, thinks Gareth Southgate's side are just as good as their Croatian counterparts.
He said: "I've watched a lot of Croatia and it's a team that's talented but should we be scared of them? Absolutely not."Player for player I feel we're as good as they are. It is going to be extremely difficult and it might be a game of fine margins. It might even go to penalties again which is going to be heart stopping for the whole nation but we do have the ability in this team to win this game."Everyone is so proud of what they've achieved so far and they have nothing to fear against Croatia."
England captain Harry Kane is currently leading the race for the Golden Boot at the World Cup sbo666 with six goals but, according to Redknapp, it's his experiences of playing against Croatia defender Dejan Lovren which could prove crucial in Saint Petersburg on Wednesday.Lovren has had his difficulties against Kane playing for Liverpool in the Premier League against Tottenham and Redknapp thinks those experiences could prove to be an advantage for England.
sbo666 "When you look at that guy, Harry Kane, up front, leading the team it makes things much simpler," the Sky Sports pundit added. "You know the Croatia defence will be wary of him."Dejan Lovren has struggled so much against Kane over the past couple of seasons. I remember him cutting inside and bending one into the far corner at Anfield and then earlier in the season at Wembley he terrorised him.
