Those two moments of excellence helped Croatia reach its first World Cup final following a 2-1 win over England on Wednesday, setting up a title match against France.

The Croats are headed to their first World Cup final ever, if they can just stay on their feet for a few more days.

Croatia had also needed spot-kicks to get past a dogged Denmark in the last-16, but Modric insisted they would not be exhausted for the last-four clash against England at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Wednesday.

Croatia now have the chance to take revenge on France after losing 2-1 in Paris when the sides met in the semi-finals back in 1998 - Dalic travelled to that World Cup as a fan.

Sime Vrsaljko hopes he can recover from a knee injury in time to face England in the World Cup semi-final. However, the current president of the Croatian Football Federation had a largely disappointing spell in north London and subsequently with West Ham as he scored only 10 top-flight goals across two seasons.

The Hyde Park screening was the largest of its kind for an England game since 1996, when the country hosted the European Championship and the team made the semi-finals. I can imagine the same kind of scenes, a very great and positive atmosphere back in England.

Trump was given the number nine jersey of striker Andrej Kramaric - that number was also worn by the top scorer at the 1998 World Cup, Davor Suker.

"Coach Zlatko Dalić has done a wonderful job, all the players are united and they're playing well". I felt something unusual and, after discussion with doctors, we decided I should go off.

Croatia's star midfielder Luka Modric said "we will see who will be tired" was the team ethos going into the July 11 semifinal, feeling Croatia had been under-estimated by the English.

"We deserved to reach the final".

Crowds of glum-looking fans swiftly streamed out of the venue, as some stayed behind to applaud the young team's surprising success in Russian Federation.

"From the start of the second half we played much better, but unfortunately we couldn't finish the game".

"We played better than we did against Argentina".

"Unfortunately our dream has been postponed, and it is very painful for all of us that after so much work and dedication on the part of each player, technical commission, and staff, there is vast pain", he wrote.
