Mateo Kovacic Igor Akinfeev Russia Croatia

After a dramatic win on penalties against hosts Russia, Croatia has repeated the success of the 1998 team which reached the semi-finals in the country's first World Cup as an independent nation.

"They showed from the games I've seen so far that they play direct football and they are very fast". In extra-time nobody wanted to be substituted.

"Croatia has great players playing at the greatest clubs, but it is true we have not had good results at major tournament for decades", the coach said on Tuesday. But we have to kill games earlier. The team was a favourite to win and has not secured a spot in a World Cup final since 1966. "They played well and made it difficult for us... it's hard to put your finger of it".

Luka Modric has been inspirational throughout their run, yet there were numerous outstanding performances at the Luzhniki Stadium as Croatia recovered from a shaky opening half hour.

Eric Dier has warned England will face one of the best players in the world tonight.

"Sad, but we'll wait for another four years and see if this young [English] team can carry on", he said.

The dream ended for supporters in Moscow and at home as Gareth Southgate's men lost 2-1 to Croatia in the semi-final after extra time.

"We will go into this final to win it, as we have still not got over the 2016 final".

He said: "I don't read what is going on in England, I am reading about my own country after each game".

"We played better than we did against Argentina. Football is sacred. We built the foundation for our house in 98, and now we're building the second floor".

The goal, timed at 109 minutes of the match, cemented Croatia's first ever World Cup final berth and was celebrated after the game was over by the Croatia children. "Something had to change to get the results", Dalic said. He will just be hoping that all of them are fit enough for one last effort against a fearsome French side.
