  • Croatia become smallest nation to reach World Cup final since 1950

For some, England's success in reaching the last four has brought a much-needed sense of unity in a country still wracked by divisions over Brexit.

France won the match 3-0 to claim the World Cup for the first time, with the timing of the match two days before Bastille Day adding to the significance of the victory.

Within the first five minutes, English fans were given cause for celebration when Kieran Trippier scored a free kick, giving his side a dream 1-0 lead.

France's players danced on the field after the final whistle and their fans sang in the stands long past the end of the match, surrounded by yellow-clad security. "I wanted to make substitutions but nobody would come off". We have shown character. There is still one game to play and the most important of our careers.

"We might have the chance for the revenge in the finals with the French", Plenkovic said.

There is no better opportunity or reason for wildly celebrating a goal than scoring in the 109th minute of a World Cup semi-final.

Dalic was only appointed as Croatia coach towards the end of their qualifying campaign, leading them to Russian Federation via a play-off win against Greece.

Gareth Southgate's England should change nothing, says Steph Houghton
France await the winners in the final, but Southgate is convinced the future is bright whatever the outcome. England have been based in Repino near St.

Julie Rimet just moved to Kansas City from England two days ago.

Luka Modric has been inspirational throughout their run, yet there were numerous outstanding performances at the Luzhniki Stadium as Croatia recovered from a shaky opening half hour.

"We have to give a lot of credit to the way France defended, even having certain attacking players defending very deep and giving us a lot of respect in that way", said opposing coach Roberto Martinez.

"We played better than we did against Argentina. I told the players before the game there was no pressure - we have reached the semi-finals, enjoy your football and this was exactly what we did".

"We have prepared well, I can brag a little about that", laughed Deschamps after securing a place in Sunday's final in Moscow against either Croatia or England.

The population is expected to descend on pubs and beer gardens across the country in support of Gareth Southgate and the Three Lions and drink an extra 10 million beers, the British Beer and Pub Association said. But I wonder if we are going to get the game we wanted during the group stage of England's stars against Belgium's stars.
