The semi-finals of the Football World Cup tend to be more open, exciting games than the final itself as teams are desperate to make it to the final.

Get your semi-finals tickets here to find out for yourself.
Who will make it to the semi-finals in Russia?
For some teams, reaching the semi-finals of the Football World Cup is a dream come true, whereas for others if their side do not make it to the semis it's seen as a bad tournament. For example, if England reach the semi-finals fans will be ecstatic. On the other hand, if Brazil fail to reach the last four the country does a lot of soul searching to see what went wrong. If we take a look at the teams that have reached the Football World Cup semi-finals in the last three tournaments (Germany, Spain, Holland, Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, France, Portugal and Italy), we can see that all of them are current or former World or European champions, so it is definitely not a simple task.
However, this should not stop teams from dreaming and aiming high. After all, Turkey and South Korea both reached this stage in 2002.
Italians and neutrals alike will find it hard to forget the national team's victory over Germany in 2006. Two incredibly late extra-time goals sealed a 2-0 victory over the host nation and Italy eventually would go on to win the 2006 final against France. In 1990, the semi-final between West Germany and England had it all - tears, drama and, of course, England crashing out on penalties to the Germans. And then, there's a match that will probably never be forgotten by anyone when Germany thrashed Brazil 7-1. So, if it's world-class football and incredible drama you're looking for, you don't want to miss the chance to get Football World Cup 2018 - Semi Finals tickets and be there yourself.
