It will be Belgium v England on Saturday to decide who gets third place. That match is in Saint Petersburg and is at 6pm UAE time.
Then it is the final on Sunday in Moscow. France, looking for a second world title after their 1998 success, up against Croatia, managed by former Al Ain manager Zlatko Dalic, in their first final, and looking for glory.
Thanks for following us tonight for the action. Follow all the news here from Russia with The National.
We are underway again. Only Italy in 1990 have led a semi-final at half time and gone on to lose. Gareth Southgate's England will hope that they will not become the second side to do that.
Zlatko Dalic has arguably given the most important team talk of his career to his Croatia players. Can the former Al Ain manager inspire a revival?
10.45pm - England lead at half time
So Kieran Trippier's free-kick separates the sides at half time.
Both sides will have cause for optimism and concern.
England's will be they are leading, but arguably should be further ahead.
Croatia's will be they have come more into the match as the half has worn on, but have struggled to create chances and it has been England who have manufactured the better opportunities, with Raheem Sterling impressing.
This is England's third appearance in the World Cup semi-finals and Croatia's second.
England have a 50 per cent success record. In 1966 they defeated Portugal 2-1 at Wembley Stadium, with Bobby Charlton scoring both goals, on their way to winning the tournament as they defeated West Germany 4-2 in the final.
They, however, were beaten 4-3 on penalties by West Germany in 1990 in Turin, following a 1-1 draw, with Stuart Pearce and Chris Waddle both failing to score with their spot-kicks.
Croatia's sole appearance previously in the last four was in 1998 in France. They went ahead against the tournament hosts thanks to Davor Suker's goal, but France hit back to prevail 2-1.
The Luzhniki has hosted some pretty special moments at this #WorldCup so far...
11.30am - Who will join France in Sunday's World Cup final
France confirmed their place in the final of the 2018 World Cup with a 1-0 win over Belgium in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday. Tonight, we find out who of Croatia or England will join them in Sunday's showpiece.
For England it is the next step in what has been an incredible journey so far, one that has defied expectations.
Gareth Southgate picked a squad light on experience but big on enthusiasm for Russia. Indeed, not even the manager was born the only time England lifted the World Cup in 1966 on home soil.
In Croatia they face a team that demolished Argentina in the group phase but have had to rely on the lottery of penalty shoot-outs in their two knockout matches - against Denmark and Russia - to reach only a second World Cup semi-final.
Southgate told reporters on Tuesday that the most important thing was to keep things as normal as possible for his young charges.
"We've been tucked away in our base camp preparing the same way," he said. "Our preparation for the game has been identical. I think it's important there's consistency leading into matches like this.
"You don't have to change things, you don't have to do things differently. You don't have to find another level, generally speaking.
"As a player if you can perform at your regular level in these games then very often that's more than enough because people can be inhibited in big matches."
If keeping things "normal" means training with blue and red rubber toy roosters as part of preparing for the biggest games of their lives, then England have it nailed.
Check out this gallery of England's Tuesday training session at their base on the outskirts of Moscow.
A higher ratio of goals per match have been scored in Russia than at any other World Cup. And from set-pieces, no team has been more effective than England.
Including their three penalties - and excluding the four spot-kick goals of their shoot-out against Colombia in the last 16 - England have scored eight of their 11 goals from dead-ball scenarios, principally crosses into the penalty area, via a corner or a free-kick.
This might be taken as evidence that the England team lean heavily on the supposed traditional fortes of English football: high crosses, big target-men and a certain muscularity.

“England are dangerous at set-pieces,” acknowledges Dejan Lovren, the Croatia and Liverpool central defender. “Just look at the players! The smallest is about 1.9m tall! So it will be a challenge.”
Croatia have Lovren and Domagoj Vida as principal sentries in the centre of defence and, as was notable in their quarter-final against Russia, they use some novel manouevres to mark set-pieces.
Gareth Southgate - the fall-guy who has become an unlikely national hero
Southgate was the last England footballer to touch the ball in the semi-final of a major tournament. His rather tame spot kick was blocked by Andreas Kopke. It was Euro '96 and another German team advanced to the final at England’s expense.
For 22 years, it felt defining, the moment that overshadowed the other achievements in an admirable career. “I was the person who had ended a nation’s dream,” Southgate wrote in Woody And Nord: A Football Friendship (by Southgate and Andy Woodman). “I knew this would be a major issue for the rest of my life.”
So it has proved, and yet the first line of his eventual obituary requires rewriting. The circle of footballing life is almost complete. Southgate erred in a semi-final – albeit one where he had actually excelled in his job as a defender – but has led England to their first since then. He has restored a feelgood factor that has been missing for much of the time since those heady days of Euro '96.
That there is the same soundtrack, with the constant choruses of “football’s coming home” and Three Lions back at No 1 in the charts, has added to the sense that history is repeating itself, but with a difference. The fall-guy has become the unlikely national hero. The 2018 World Cup seems to be Southgate’s redemption song.
The implausibility of an underestimated man’s renaissance has been one of the endearing elements. Read Richard Jolly's comment piece on how Southgate, by leading a nation to a World Cup semi-final, has already proved England's improbable hero.
We have plenty of reaction from that game, including Ian Hawkey's analysis of an ominous-looking France side, who have just booked their place in the country’s third World Cup in their last six attempts.
