Here's a look toward Day 23 of the 2018 World Cup, including a match preview and a look at which key player will be worth keeping an eye on.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo calls for special session on abortion rights

Vida has quietly been one of the standout performers at this World Cup, and Croatia will be relieved he avoided a suspension for a rather ill-advised video published online after the win over Russian Federation.
