In addition to touching on England's preparations for the nation's biggest game in almost three decades, Southgate took the time to praise World Cup hosts Russian Federation. The players gave everything and were pushing until the last second to get back in the game.

World Cup glory beckons for Croatian stars such as Luka Modric after several traumatic experiences at major tournaments, says their former coach Slaven Bilic.

And Jenas, who now works as a pundit for the BBC, thinks England must negotiate a tie featuring the best midfielder in the world football if they are to get there.

"Representing his country as a player and a manager meant the world to him and I know he would be enjoying every minute of this World Cup".

"So we should not be surprised that Croatia are in the semi-finals given the quality of the players".

The Juventus striker accumulated a bar tab of £3,000 as he provided free beers to supporters watching on in his home town of Slavonski Brod despite being more than 2,500 miles away from Sochi.

But that's what most experts say about European players, right? An accomplished scorer, Doncic possesses tremendous potential. But I have a feeling Cuban will make more moves when free agency rolls along this July. "I'm not sure what position he is".

"Two years ago, I remember what happened two years ago", he said.

"There were questions over Sime Vrsaljko but our right-back trained normally and could be ready", they stated below an image of the player in training.

Asked how he would avoid the song, Southgate added: "I would just walk out of the room, it is an anthem and has followed the team for a long time but involved some hard moments as well". That evenness is why France is the team to beat in the mind of Jeffrey Marcus, publisher of the World Cup newsletter "The Banter". He said what we showed on the field was great.

Dalic, who enjoyed a solid but unspectacular career as a midfielder in Croatia, was given the national job previous year after success as a coach in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Victories over Nigeria, Argentina and Iceland in the group stages were followed by penalty-shootout wins against Denmark and Russian Federation in the knockout phase.

"Hopefully we will go a step further than in 1998".
