Legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has extended his support to England who will be playing the semi-final match of FIFA World Cup 2018 against Croatia on July 11. While declaring England as his favourite to win the FIFA WC 2018, Tendulkar kicked the football towards the camera in a video he posted on Twitter.
Tendulkar has been active on social media of late. Recently, he had a banter with Tennis legend Roger Federer over his forward defence shot off a default serve in Wimbledon 2018. The legends even agreed to exchange a few notes on their respective sports.

It seems like football fever is finally taking over the 45-year-old. He has also been sharing his opinions on the ongoing India’s tour of England.
According to the popular opinion, this has been England’s best chance to win the World Cup in a while. They are yet to lose a single game in the tournament and riding high on the success of their star player Harry Kane.
The hashtag #itscominghome, which apparently started out as a joke before the world cup, has become the anthem for English fans. The hashtag has been trending on Twitter for a while now. They would look to bring the trophy home after a long gap of 52 overs.
Whereas Croatia reached the semi-final for the second time in World Cup’s history. The last time they reached the semi-final was in 1998.
