Semi-final against England and presumptuous English media: "We were the better team in the second half and in extra-time".

Every time a major tournament comes around, a familiar refrain is heard in the region: "If only Yugoslavia was one country, imagine the incredible team we could have".

"It will be more about the physical capabilities of the team", the manager said.

In a region still scarred by the conflicts of the 1990s in which 130,000 people died, many people find it hard to throw their support behind Croatia despite a common language and culture.

Dalic said there would be no excuses from his team despite their exertions over the past two weeks. I am making predictions about the future Croatian players.

"The victory over Argentina, the extra time!"

Milojko Pantic, a well-known sports commentator when Yugoslavia was still a single country, said that Serbs with a sense of brotherliness had supported Croatia in the quarter-finals while those who wanted to see Russian Federation beat Croatia were "bigots and nationalists". "Going to extra-time might be a problem along with the fact France have had an extra day to recover but there will be no excuses".

"They have upped their game over the past several games, " Ivan Perisic said.




In London, an initial wave of elation turned to heartbreak as 30,000 beer-soaked fans in Hyde Park watched their team come up short.

But despite the bitter disappointment, captain Harry Kane said England had restored pride during their run to the semi-finals and could use it as a springboard for success. We have no doubts, we play together, that's our strength. We stay as we are from the start of the tournament.

"We should be proud and hold our heads up high because we've come a long way from two years ago".

Even Scots have found themselves singing along to it.

Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper believes England have "moved forward into a brighter age".

Pitana has been an worldwide referee since 2010. For Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne, and Vincent Kompany, their dreams of lifting the World Cup trophy are over. The only other meeting at a tournament was in the group stage of the 2004 European Championship, when a controversial referee's call went against the Croats.

'I do not know Gareth's team plan but he will be anxious to leave Russian Federation with a victory.

The Mirror - MOSCOW, Alireza Faghani of Iran will take charge of England's third-place play-off with Belgium on Saturday.
