Travel agents have reported a late surge of interest from fans in Britain and Croatia, although getting match tickets and visas could be tricky.

Arkady Dvorkovich says “The teams that had most fans in Russia left early. Latin American teams, Germany, some other teams left, and we’re left in the semifinals with the teams that have the least number of supporters, so it’s not really good for the economics of football during this last week.”

England plays Croatia in the second semifinal Wednesday for a spot in Sunday’s final against France.
