Goldman Sachs has changed it's mind about the World Cup final - again.

Barcelona midfielder Rakitic scored the decisive spot-kick as Croatia beat Russian Federation 4-3 on penalties after a dramatic quarter-final in Sochi on Sunday morning (Singapore time) finished 2-2 at the end of extra-time.

"They have been playing at an extremely high level for their clubs".

Southgate's team play Croatia in the semi-final in Moscow on Wednesday. "We'll be there and it's a once in a lifetime opportunity seeing them in the World Cup".
