Russia's fairytale World Cup run ends in tears

England dream of World Cup glory as Russian fans thank team

Croatia captain Luka Modric put in a Man-of-the-Match performance to lead his side to a penalty shoot-out victory over hosts Russian Federation, but he has no interest in personal awards as Croats chase their World Cup dream in a semi-final against England.

There's no way it couldn't be after ousting Denmark on penalties in the round of 16, then being forced to extra time again by host Russian Federation on Saturday.

Croatia will next play England in the semifinals on Wednesday in Moscow. "Of course, there is some power left for the English". We made ourselves happy, but also everyone back in Croatia happy - I don't cry often, but now I had good cause, ' he told reporters.

Subasic sought out to never forget his friend, wearing a special shirt under his goalkeeper jersey in every game he's played since the tragedy took place. We're giving our all. It will be a battle again but I trust us.

Dalic said: "That was a great success for Croatia as a nation".

"England breezed past Sweden". They have a young, alive, attacking team.

On a scorching Saturday that saw England advance further in the World Cup than the home of the lovely game has since 1990 and Croatia take down a dynamo, Russian Federation was on seemingly everyone's lips yesterday - and we don't mean Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation of Donald Trump and the adjoining array of Congressional committees. The favourites, the big teams are home. Martinez hopes to succeed where they failed by employing a two-year process to ensure "this is a team, this is not a group of individuals". Russian Federation had crashed out of the tournament. "We were together. You were the 12th, 13th, 15th and 16th player", he said and promised that the team would demonstrate better results at the next World Cup in Qatar, although it would be hard without such support.

Schumacher was involved in the first ever World Cup tie to be decided on penalties as Germany beat France in the 1982 semifinals although he should have earlier been sent off for a notorious challenge on French forward Patrick Battiston. First, his team needs to get past France on Tuesday to earn a spot in the final for the first time. "I was thrilled! I walked up to ask him for a photograph, and we looked around for someone to take a nice long shot, but at that moment, no one was around, so I stood perplexed and my helplessness showed as Luka graciously offered, 'Let me take it, ' and he went onto to click a few selfies as I stood unable to move, totally dumbstruck".

They drank while they partied, singing songs and taking pictures with visiting fans from other countries.
