France is back in the World Cup final for the first time since Zinedine Zidane's headbutt in 2006. "I don't have the words".

That surprisingly angry exchange was the only bitter moment in an otherwise routine news conference, where manager Zlatko Dalic admitted playing two games that went to penalties had taken a toll but said Croatia would be ready. "Everyone is with us, we're all in this together". "I'm very happy for my players, we showed character and the right mentality, it was very hard for us tonight". We savour [the win] a little, but we must now focus on the final. That evenness is why France is the team to beat in the mind of Jeffrey Marcus, publisher of the World Cup newsletter "The Banter". 'We are all trying to work that out. I'm very proud of them.

"We are excited about the future but we want to make the most of this opportunity as well".

Federation Internationale de Football Association had invited the team to the World Cup final on Sunday but the governing body announced the boys wouldn't be able to attend since they are receiving medical treatment after their ordeal. In 2006, they were beaten in a penalty shootout by Italy in a World Cup final that was overshadowed by Zidane headbutting opposing player Marco Materazzi in the chest in extra time.

Putin noted that "Team Belgium has demonstrated supreme football throughout the entire championship", the Kremlin press service said.

"A lot of pride", said the defender. We had the chance to win the final of the Euros, but we missed a wonderful thing and we must not let this chance pass.

Two years ago at home, the French surprisingly lost to Portugal 1-0 in the Euro 2016 title match. He's been showing us season in, season out, that he is among the best strikers in the Premier League. They worked in '98 and we worked today, we reached out target to get to the final.
