England manager Gareth Southgate has named an unchanged starting lineup for Wednesday's World Cup semi-final with Croatia.

The Three Lions progressed through to the last four with a 2-0 victory over Sweden, and Southgate has opted to keep faith with the same XI.

Jordan Henderson had been a slight doubt with a hamstring issue, but the Liverpool man starts with Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard playing just in front of him.

As for Croatia, head coach Zlatko Dalic has made just the one alteration to the team which started the quarter-final clash with hosts Russia.

Marcelo Brozovic has been given the nod in the centre of midfield with Andrej Kramaric dropping down to the substitutes' bench.

Reports had suggested that Sime Vrsaljko would miss out through injury, but the Atletico Madrid player starts the game at right-back.

Croatia: Subasic; Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Strinic; Brozovic, Modric, Rakitic; Perisic, Rebic, Mandzukic

England: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire; Trippier, Henderson, Alli, Young; Lingard, Sterling; Kane
