Photographer unwittingly becomes part of Croatia World Cup goal celebration

Russian fans serenade England star Dele Alli with impromptu musical show of support

Croatia have never reached the World Cup final before and will fancy their chances of beating a talented but inconsistent France side.

But Croatia found energy after the break when the game opened up, making England's missed first-half opportunities seem all-the-more significant.

Although the statistics registered the 58% of the ball possession in favor of Croatia against England's 42%, the first half ended with 1-0 flashing on the scoreboard.

The Croatia defender Domagoj Vida added to the long-standing tensions with a video that was released of him shouting "Glory to Ukraine", after his team had put Russian Federation out on penalties in the quarter-final.

The Royal Christening Robe was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal. Kate is now in the middle of maternity leave for Prince Louis and hasn't yet returned to full-time royal duties.

Croatia's strength of character will serve them well in the World Cup final against France, their coach and players said after they came from behind for the third straight knockout match to beat England on Wednesday. When player Kieran Trippier scored an early goal against Croatia in the first quarter, in fact, crowds of England fans erupted in raucous joy.

This time around, we could see the stars play, or we could see some more reserves to get some guys some minutes, and that makes picking here hard.

Russia's ministry of communications said there had been 6,300 new applications for fan IDs, the document that allows visa-free entry to Russian Federation during the World Cup, since England beat Sweden in the quarter-final on Saturday. I'd be amazed if he doesn't come out and something emerges about his fitness.

England's match in Moscow on Wednesday night will be for a place in the World Cup final against France on Sunday at the Luzhniki Stadium, but Southgate believes his side will not face an easy route to get there.

Ranked by most recruiting services as a safety coming out of high school, the team stuck with Alexander at the corner spot. Webb, Teddy Williams, and William Gay , who likely very find themselves on the bubble following the pick of Beal.

Southgate leads a group of players whose conduct has won so many admirers here as England made their way to the last four.

But the cold hard truth is that England squandered its chance to reach the final. The players and all of the staff, they have to be proud.

It could also be the final act in the battle for the Golden Boot between Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku.

From Southgate's perspective, though, a third-placed finish will add to the sense of achievement and pride and at least allow England to leave Russian Federation on the high most will agree they have deserved.

They now they have the chance to use their tactical intelligence and mental strength against a formidable France team on Sunday. Ivan Perisic has scored four goals at the World Cup for Croatia - only Davor Suker (six) has more.
