Semi-Finals – World Cup 2018 Russia

Dates: July 10 – July 11

Location of games: St Petersburg and Moscow.

Possible fixtures

Up to this point of the campaign, anything is possible, and many nations will be confident of going all the way if they can somehow reach the semi-finals on Russian territory. There are some potential epic clashes on the cards in the final four, including a tasty meeting between former champions Brazil and Spain, who are both attempting to get back to their previous dizzy heights. Meanwhile, Portugal would be promising opponents for England at this stage.

England’s chances of qualifying

Gareth Southgate’s England roster are unlikely of reaching this stage of the 2018 World Cup, proven by recent outings, but anything can happen in international football. If they were to do so and reach the semi-finals along the way, they would likely face the likes of France, Argentina or Portugal.
