A decade later a young, vibrant team has earned England a spot in the World Cup semifinals for the first time in 28 years and it will face Croatia again.

We have only two. I'll be dead before Argentina maybe get one more. I don't see a countdown. The only ones left are No. 1 Simona Halep and No. 2 Karolina Pliskova . "I love playing here".
