But that's not all Timberlake did to show his support for England as it takes on Croatia in the World Cup semifinal Wednesday.

Croatia topped a tough group, winning all three games. England are favourites at $2.4 compared to Croatia's 3.65.

"I think differently. Like his Real Madrid team-mate Toni Kroos, Spain's Andres Iniesta or another Croat, Ivan Rakitic, Luka is a rhythm-type player who sets the tempo of games and gives his team control of them".

"They aren't in the semifinal for no reason", he said at a news conference.

"They have a lot of quality, they play well, well organised and a physically strong, but we are also aware of our quality".

"They've got players all around the squad that are going to be hard opponents".

Meanwhile, the last two games for Croatia, against Denmark and Russian Federation, ended the same: with Croatia winning in penalties.

This is a proud nation and a proud football team, and to reach a World Cup final would represent a truly remarkable story.

"We have strength and we're united on the pitch", the Barcelona star told FIFA TV. You feel really safe and secure, as opposed to before we came out, nobody knew what to expect.

"This is an incredible result for a small country like Croatia". But when England face Croatia in Russian Federation on Wednesday, there may only be only a few thousand England supporters present. The center-back will be key to limiting England's threat from set pieces and will be a useful weapon in the opposition box, too.

The second semi-final between England and Croatia will start at 6am tomorrow.

While they haven't played with the attacking potential they're capable of, France have been measured and professional throughout this World Cup.

It's a face-off between England and Croatia. - Harry Kane has scored on six of the seven days of the week for England, with Wednesday the exception. "That's why there haven't been many England fans here", said Mark Jowsey, 46, a butcher from Newcastle. - Mario Mandzukic assisted Andrej Kramaric's goal against Russian Federation in the quarterfinal - he has been involved in four goals at the World Cup finals for Croatia (3 goals, 1 assist), with only Davor Suker involved in more (6).

The win sent tens of thousands of French fans pouring onto the Champs-Elysees avenue in Paris in scenes of joy last seen when France won the World Cup two decades ago. - Croatia scored two headers in its last match against Russian Federation - only one of its previous 29 World Cup goals was scored via a header.
