Justin Timberlake to show England v Croatia at O2 arena

Justin Timberlake will show England's World Cup semi-final against Croatia at his Wednesday performance at the O2 arena.

The American popstar is now on tour in the United Kingdom and showed his love for the Three Lions, who will play their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years against Croatia on Wednesday, during a gig at the O2 Arena.

The Three Lions will face either Belgium or France in the showpiece if they are able to beat Croatia, who have been forced to endure two successive penalty shootouts, against Denmark and hosts Russian Federation.

Indeed, the fever in question doesn't appear to be life-threatening at the moment, instead exclusively manifesting in the involuntary collective yelling of the lyrics to a 22-year-old football song. "Go on then Maguire!" roared Timberlake in his finest English accent. "I'd be so hyped!"

The song has been so prevalent in England this year due to World Cup mania that it topped Spotify charts with over 1 million plays, according to the streaming service.
