Marco Fu withstood one of the Crucibles finest fightbacks to book his place in the World Championship semi-finals for the second time in his career on Wednesday. Kenyan Drake Jersey . Trailing 9-1 after losing the first two frames of the morning session, opponent Barry Hawkins launched a stunning recovery to move within one frame of levelling their last-eight clash in Sheffield.Hawkins, who had edged a nail-biting final-frame win over Ronnie OSullivan in the previous round, won five frames in a row as he came back to 10-9, but his opponent from Hong Kong stood strong to eventually stumble over the line 13 11. The 38-year-old had seemed destined for the last four for the first time since 2006 after building on his 7-1 overnight advantage to move within four frames of victory.But after Hawkins clawed back the deficit, the decisive frames became increasingly pressure-filled affairs until a nerveless break of 74 from Fu in the 24th frame - in response to a 60 from Hawkins - saw him home.Meanwhile, 45-year-old Alan McManus reached his first Crucible semi-final in 23 years after winning the last four frames of his clash with compatriot John Higgins to also triumph 13-11.It was a remarkable performance from the Scottish veteran, who stuck doggedly to Higgins throughout the match before producing some superb break-building in the final frames as four-times champion Higgins was first to wilt. Kyren Wilson has been a star at the Crucible over the last two weeks McManus will face Ding Junhui in the last four, while Fu will take on world No 1 Mark Selby after the Leicester man secured his own passage with a comfortable 13-8 win over rising star Kyren Wilson.The 2014 champion had resumed Wednesdays morning session with a commanding 10-6 overnight lead, and a pair of swift half-centuries set him on his way to victory.Despite his defeat, Wilson believes he has the ability to one day return and win the world title.He said: Without a doubt, I will win this event in the future. I completely believe in myself and this hasnt dampened my confidence.I will have a bit of a rest and will be back working very, very hard to make sure next season is even better than this one.

As the host nation I think France will have a good tournament, so hell have plenty of chances with the likes of Paul Pogba behind him in the line-up. Smith predicts: Griezmann (9/1 with Sky Bet) Atletico Madrids Antoine Griezmann netted 22 times in La Liga Matt Le TissierIm going to go with the heart when it comes to the top goalscorer and pick one of Englands in-form frontmen.I think, having finished the season as the Premier Leagues top goalscorer, Harry Kane will be full of confidence and hes a decent price to finish the tournament as top scorer as well.Le Tiss predicts: Kane (14/1 with Sky Bet) Harry Kane scored 25 Premier League goals for Tottenham Charlie NicholasIm looking at different groups and how complicated they are. Ive gone for Spain in the outright and Im intrigued by who is going to lead the line for them.Alvaro Morata and Nolito are starting to produce the goals with the great creator Cesc Fabregas at the peak of his career. Mike Pouncey Jersey. Im going to go with Morata. Sometimes a player comes along and goes boom and produces on the big stage and I think it could be his tournament.Nicholas predicts: Morata (18/1 with Sky Bet) Alvaro Morata capped his campaign with a Coppa Italia winner Alan McInallyThats a really tough one actually. I think Griezmann has had a wonderful season. Ive already said I think France will do well and obviously the longer youre in the competition the better chance you have.Ronaldo is another favourite, but the scenario is that Portugal will probably have to do better than they have in recent competitions and get past the quarter-finals.However, if England have a wonderful competition then maybe Jamie Vardy, who can do no wrong, could be an outside shout and might be worth a tenner.McInally predicts: Vardy (33/1 with Sky Bet) Jamie Vardy has scored in his last three England appearances Phil ThompsonId probably go for Thomas Muller given Ive backed Germany to win it. Hes a serial scorer in any tournament and its difficult to look past him. I think hell be on penalty duty as well, which is always an important one.Thommo predicts: Muller (8/1 with Sky Bet) Sky Sports Euro 2016 predictor Make your predictions with our interactive wall chart here. Paul MersonI think Kane is a good shout for top goalscorer. He loves a shot, he shoots from anywhere and hits the target most of the time.He obviously missed his penalty the other day and you hope that he stays on them because if he doesnt, rip your slip up. You need to have a penalty taker if youre going to nail the top goalscorer in my opinion.Merse predicts: Kane (14/1 with Sky Bet) Kane hits the target most of the time, says Paul Merson Also See: Euro 2016 predictor No defence for England?
