World Cup photographer crushed by celebrating Croatian team, captures every moment

It was a message that drew a hugely positive response from Pogba's vast army of social media followers on Instagram and Twitter, with the Manchester United midfielder striking a humble tone after one of the best nights of his career.

"Two years ago it was tough", said one of the returnees, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. He played the game with great maturity.

Federation Internationale de Football Association have named Argentinian Nestor Pitana as the referee for Sunday's World Cup final between France and Croatia.

"Today I'm happy but it's not like the Euros. I have grown up, matured".

Belgium won that match, and did surprisingly well navigating the "side of death", defeating Japan and Brazil en route to the semifinal before falling 1-0 to France. "He was very efficient in our defensive plan".

In beating Gareth Southgate's young team, Croatia have surpassed the achievement of the heroes of 1998, who reached the semi-finals in France in their first World Cup as an independent nation.

"I wanted to substitute, but nobody wanted to be subbed". He's always been a leader.

"We're a small country with so many successful sports people", defender Dejan Lovren said through a translator.

The French have relied on the attacking brilliance of 19-year-old forward Kylian Mbappé while Croatia have depended on Luka Modric and Mario Mandzukic to spearhead their attack.

"I don't have a star". It's on the shirt, but I did not win it.

"It's fantastic, we're so excited", said Christopher Tomas, owner of the Croatian Corner deli, of Croatia's win. They are solid. "I don't think that tiredness will play a part as you overcome it when you play in a final".

"We were louder, they were carrying us, they picked us up when we were not in control of the game", Dalic said of the supporters. But in Russian Federation he has proved how hard he is willing to work for success.

Pogba tends to live life with a smile on his face.
