Top 4 underrated players of the World Cup

England beat Croatia 5-1 the last time they met in 2009

From the moment Kieran Trippier put England ahead to Croatia's equaliser, Mario Mandzukic's victor and then the full-time whistle.

The biggest concern for Croatia ahead of Sunday's final is fatigue, as they also required extra time and penalties to come through against Denmark in the last 16 and hosts Russian Federation in the quarter-finals.

World Cup final: "For a country like Croatia, it's something historic to be in the final of a World Cup". We are focused on ourselves.

Grant Davidson said they had "brought the country together" during the run to the semi-finals, the first time England had reached the last four since losing to West Germany in 1990. I'm proud of how far we came and proud of Gareth Southgate. "Everybody has come. It's the best feeling in a long time".

Israeli company shooting for lunar landing
The Israeli-built unmanned spacecraft is expected to take about two months to reach the Moon, reports the Times of Israel . The competition, however, ended with no victor on March 31, when Google announced that it would no longer sponsor it.

"People were talking... English journalists, pundits from television", Modric told ITV.

"Whether that had an effect on us not wanting to take as many chances as we had, subconsciously, I don't know".

Unlike the Olympics, where winning third place comes with a bronze medal and some sense of accomplishment, at the World Cup it's only a brutal reminder of how close you came.

"But we will do that and we'll make sure we are ready as a group to go again because the group have huge pride in their performances, in the way that they work".

New Intel Prompts U.S. Government To Reopen Emmett Till Investigation

The Times and The Guardian said it was the "end of the dream" while i said "Southgate's team will still return as heroes after superb World Cup effort". "I think he has been the player of the tournament regardless of the result on Sunday".

"This was our problem for 10 years, we had great individuals but no unity and that's why I had to build that unity of goal in the team".

England had only ever played there once (a 2-1 defeat to Russian Federation back in 2007), and it seems like the curse / losing streak is destined to continue for the time being.
