We're tired but there can be no excuses: we've got to the semi-final, we're here to enjoy ourselves and give our all, we do not want to say we're worn out or exhausted. "I'm sure Belgium didn't want to be in it", Kane said.

With three straight extra-time matches, Croatia has played the equivalent a full 90-minute match more than France has through six games in Russian Federation.

France's forward Kylian Mbappe runs with the ball during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup semifinal football match between France and Belgium at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in Saint Petersburg on July 10, 2018.

"People are crying, they are happy in our country - this is something historical for us", Lovren said.

After Croatia stunned England in the second World Cup semifinal on Wednesday, we finally have the matchup that'll determine it all in 2018: France will face off against Croatia on Sunday. "There are a lot of ifs and buts, in these games it's small margins".

It was a rollercoaster, with England going 1-0 up within the first five minutes thanks to Kieran Trippier but Croatia clawed one back in the second half.

"Pride of Lions": A more defiant back page insists, "We're coming home but with heads held high" and "our time will come".

The Croats needed extra-time and penalties for the second successive knockout game, beating Russian Federation last time, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see them tire at some point in this game.

But England has not been in the final since 1966, when it won its only World Cup title. He deserves, if we win this World Cup, the Ballon d'Or'.

History in Turin had its echo in Moscow on Wednesday, and England's scorer 28 years ago, Gary Lineker, was at the Luzhniki Stadium to see it.

"We played better than we did against Argentina".

"It's been great to get to this stage but we wanted to go on and win it". The Croatians had enough left in the tank to put away England, but France have been the strongest team in the tournament.

He said: "They were the better team, that's all that happened". "For us, it was impressive to watch a team such as the English, that is so strong physically, and they couldn't keep up anymore, and we did have that energy".
