Croatian President 'can't wait' to attend final in Moscow stadium

Croatia after they beat Russia on penalties during their quarter final match

England will make a low-key return home on Sunday, with no team parade planned.

"They are favourites, but we will do our best to surprise them".

"This team have taken us to a place we never thought we'd ever imagine we'd get. We will try to impose ourselves and with a bit of luck it could be our day".

7 - goals in the tournament's highest-scoring games, Belgium's 5-2 win over Tunisia and England's 6-1 rout of Panama in Group G and France's 4-3 win over Argentina in the last 16.

All 23 players in Southgate's squad trained today at the team's Repino base. "And then you have to counteract that with how many good ones and how many you might do differently".

"We did talk to them [the players] about that before, but I think it was hard for them to really get it, majority weren't born in 1990 and they were too young for '96".

"I don't know (if he wants to play)", England boss Southgate said of a striker now leading the scoring charts with six goals.

Writing Croatia's name in the history books: "We'll be in the history books for being, along with Uruguay, the smallest country to play in the final".

"It's the game of our lives to play in a World Cup final, a dream I've had since I was a kid".

Speaking in Tokyo , Pompeo said his efforts to push the North on disarmament had the backing of the entire worldwide community. Countries concerned, including South Korea and Japan, should realize the long and hard path to North Korea's denuclearization.

That game saw both coaches heavily rotate their teams, and a similar scenario is likely in Saint Petersburg, with several fringe players pushing for a start. Deflated England and Belgium will nonetheless want to end their FIFA World Cup campaign somewhat on a high on Saturday.

In Moscow, Croatia fans said they were taken aback by their side's win. "We want to finish the tournament well", he added.

Perisic even received treatment in a Moscow hospital less than 24 hours after his standout performance against England, as per the Daily Mail, with those efforts now seemingly possible to have been sacrificial of his own place in the final for the sake of forcing his country over the line.

"We will have to play our best match against France, our desire is big and so is theirs".

"The support we've had from home is enormous".

"I'm not scared of anything", he said.

"Trippier is the obvious one because he's had to come off during the game and (Jordan) Henderson is also feeling his hamstring so we will just have to assess it".

Russian Federation qualified automatically for the World Cup finals as the host country and entered the tournament as the lowest-ranked team.
