Russia 2018: We can deal with Harry Kane after ”stopping Messi” – Croatia coach

Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic has said his side have already "managed to stop Messi" and so can cope with England’s Harry Kane in today’s semi-final.

The teams meet in Moscow to compete for a place in the 15 July final after Dalic’s side overcame hosts Russia on Saturday.

Dalic identified top-scorer Kane and Raheem Sterling as threats in a team with "no glaring weaknesses".

"But we believe in our strengths," he said. "We don’t fear England."

"He [Kane] is top scorer – he’s not easy to stop. But we have top centre-backs. We managed to stop Messi and [Christian] Eriksen so hopefully we can stop Kane."

The 51-year-old coach, who has only been in charge of the national side since October, was asked about England’s strengths and weaknesses and said: "I wouldn’t say there are any glaring weaknesses – they are in the semi-finals, that says it all.

"They showed from the games I’ve seen so far that they play direct football and they are very fast.

"They are really good at set-pieces and their tall players are dangerous at corners.

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is really fast and his combination with Harry Kane is really dangerous."
