English fans erupt at that Kieran Tripper goal

English fans erupt at that Kieran Tripper goal

Croatia's forward Mario Mandzukic celebrates after scoring his team's second goal during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup semi-final match between Croatia and England at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 11, 2018.

Queen Mathilde of Belgium was also present at the stadium. Didier Deschamps' side will now face the victor of Wednesday's tie between England and Croatia in Moscow.

"It was a very hard game, we all know what was at stake and how important a semi-final is for a small country like Croatia", said Perisic.

"It's an experience for us", said the Everton stopper.

"We've come an incredibly long way in a short space of time". "It was so painful two years ago we have to savor it".

The Inter winger was a target for Manchester United last summer, and while the Red Devils could still afford Perisic, his World Cup performance has probably put Tottenham out of the race.

"They (Croatia) are a threat going forward and showed a bit in the second half - and we weathered some storms".

Umtiti said: "I've known him for many years, he's always been a leader, he has that in him". I wouldn't say that I'm young, but I'm not old - well, not yet. I think it is too easy to move on immediately from what we've just been through.

Fans in Paris celebrate France's victory against Belgium in the World Cup semi-finals.

Ex-Real Madrid forward Davor Suker, the current president of the country's football federation, was the golden boot victor in 1998 with six goals for a team that also featured AC Milan midfielder Zvonimir Boban, as well as defenders Igor Stimac and Slaven Bilic - both of whom played in England.

Ever the professional, he picked up his camera and snapped the finalists close up, while colleagues in turn photographed the Salvadorean inside the pile.

Dalic was only appointed as Croatia coach towards the end of their qualifying campaign, leading them to Russian Federation via a play-off win against Greece.

"It's his quality that he's been showing for many years. We´ll repeat that this Sunday", said one supporter, Sebastien, as the crowd chanted: "We´re in the final!"
