  • Croatian President celebrating after their second goal grabbed all eye-balls

Looking forward to the final encounter between the two teams in the World Cup final next Sunday, Perišić said their determination was real.

On Wednesday, La Liga said they had invited the boys and their coach to Spain to attend a Spanish top flight game in the future when they have fully recovered from the ordeal. "This is what I wanted, this is why I'm proud and I deserve this." added Lovren. "Nobody gave up", said Dalic. We will enjoy ourselves a little, not for long - we must be focused for the final.

France doesn't just have the benefit of an extra day's rest.

He then earned a move to Saudi giants Al Hilal, initially as the coach of their reserve team but eventually took over following the sacking of Antoine Kombouare, leading them to the Saudi Crown Prince Cup and a runners-up finish in the league in 2012/13.

Curiously, an Argentine was also in charge of officiating duties the last time that France made the World Cup final.

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. It has been reported that 75.8 per cent of televisions were tuned in to the Final, with nearly 23 million people watching the match on TV.

But Croatia found energy after the break when the game opened up, making England's missed first-half opportunities seem all-the-more significant.


"We played better than we did against Argentina".

"I'm anxious, but I've got my fingers crossed", said 27-year-old Charlie Conroy as the clock ticked away.

In a sign of how their plight had gripped players at the ongoing World Cup in Russia, Paul Pogba dedicated France's semifinal win against Belgium to the youngsters.

Pitana, a 43-year-old physical education teacher, has already refereed four matches at Russian Federation 2018, taking charge of Russian Federation v Saudi Arabia (Opening Game) and Mexico v Sweden in the group stages, the Round of 16 match between Croatia and Denmark, as well as the quarter-final between Uruguay and France.

"Lots of calls coming in for fights and other incidents leaving people injured when they didn't need to be".

"We've created good chances in pretty much every that game we've played, and the strength in set-plays was something that we put a focus on because we knew the importance of it, so for me that's been a positive rather than a negative".
