Stones to notch in Semi

Croatia vs England

Croatia take on England in the second semi-final of the World Cup.

The Croats needed extra-time and penalties for the second successive knockout game, beating Russia last time, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see them tire at some point in this game.

England were comfortable winners over Sweden in their last game, winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli.

The Three Lions once again scored from a dead ball situation, their eighth set-piece goal of this World Cup.

In-fact, 72% of England's goals have come from set-pieces.

Some may see this as a negative, but England's set-piece prowess is only a good thing, as they look a threat at every corner and free-kick that they get.

Croatia looked vulnerable from set-pieces against Russia, conceding the equaliser in extra-time via a set-play, so this is an area England can exploit.

John Stones has been England's third-biggest attacking threat at this World Cup, being on the end of 1.45 xG, and scoring twice from the chances he has had.

Both of his goals came from set-plays, and given he is averaging 0.29 xG per 90 minutes, he can be expected to get at least one chance in this game.

Backing Stones to score anytime in this match is the selection.
