Trippier free kick gives England halftime lead

MOSCOW (Reuters) – England led Croatia 1-0 at halftime in their World Cup semi-final on Wednesday after Kieran Trippier got them off to a flying start by scoring from a free kick after five minutes.

Trippier curled the ball over the Croatia wall and into the top corner from the edge of the area. England looked much more dangerous throughout and missed a golden chance to go two goals ahead when Jesse Lingard, completely free on the edge of the penalty area, curled his shot wide.

The winners will play France in the final on Sunday.
