France boss Didier Deschamps realized his side will not need to play an open game against a more talented Belgium team in the semi-final. He set-up the team to play more defensively with a sole aim of getting the win on the break. The backline had to be strong and Raphael Varane was not entertaining any nonsense. He made a good number of blocks and clearances to keep a valuable clean sheet. The performance earned him 12 points on SokkaaStars World Cup Fantasy game.
4. Mario Mandzukic- 12 Points
It's all over! Croatia reach the World Cup final for first time ever thanks to Mario Mandžukić's dramatic extra time winner. England, the tournament's most inexperienced squad, go home. #ENGCRO #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/Qz8nGhdfXp

Croatia will play France in World Cup final 2018 because of that extra time goal scored by Mario Mandzukic. John Stones was next to him but within seconds, he lost him and the ball was in the net. It was lack of experience and maybe awareness by the English defender. However, take nothing away from the Juventus forward. He did what strikers are paid for. He will be required to do it again on Sunday against Le Bleus. The goal earned him 12 points on the performer’s table on SokkaaStars World Cup Fantasy game.
3. Kieran Trippier- 16 Points
Last night hurt and will for a while but we must take positives from the last few weeks and look forward to the future.What a great set of @England teammates and staff, it's been a journey we can be proud of. Thank you to all the fans out here and back home for your support🦁🦁🦁 pic.twitter.com/Aw43gMvg4K

England was in dreamland when they scored in the fifth minute thanks to a wonderful free-kick scored by fullback Kieran Trippier. They dominated the first half after the goal but they wasted a number of glorious chances to kill the game. They certainly regret that because Croatia came back to beat them 2-1. The Tottenham right-back goes home with 16 points on the performer’s table SokkaaStars World Cup Fantasy game.
