  • Russia celebrates team's run despite World Cup exit

When they face England, both sides will already know whether France or Belgium have reached the final.

More than 24,000 fans attended a meeting with the national football team in Moscow to thank the players for their historic World Cup performance, which saw them progress to the quarter-finals for the first time in their history.

But it was not meant to be as Croatia won 4-3 on penalties to advance to a semi-final against England, leaving numerous 48,0000 fans at Sochi's Fisht Stadium in tears.

Back in March, Mrs May said: "There will be no attendance by Ministers, or indeed members of the royal family, at this summer's World cup in Russian Federation".

Subasic's four shootout saves are tied with Harald Schumacher of West Germany and Sergio Goygochea of Argentina for the most in a single World Cup. It's not a matter of respect - there is great admiration for what the '98 team accomplished - but matching or exceeding what that team did has been a burden in every major tournament for the past 20 years. "It will be a battle again but I trust us, I have belief in us".

Croatia sealed their spot at the ongoing FIFA World Cup after defeating hosts Russian Federation 4-3 on penalties. That made it back-to-back shootouts for Croatia following its narrow win over Denmark in the round of 16.

Set pieces have been the main source of goals at the tournament in Russian Federation - 42 percent, no less - and England has been the master of that department on its run to Wedneday's semifinal match against Croatia.

Bringing the 24-year-old winger back into the global fold has been one of the changes made by Dalic, who replaced Ante Cacic as coach late last year.

He said: "We have power left for England".

Now they are looking to go one step further, but just getting this far is a source of great pride for Croatia.

"We do not want to stop, we will try to play our best game".

Russian Federation substitute Alexander Erokhin headed over the bar and Croatia captain Luka Modric subsequently had a shot blocked, but neither team could find a late victor. That leaves him free to play against England. "This is the character of the four teams remaining in the tournament".

England, the 1966 World Cup champion, last reached the semifinals in 1990. Then, no doubt, he'll be supporting the French pursuit of a second World Cup title the following day in Moscow.

"I'm not going to be too humble, either", he said.

"So to be here, to be a part of it, leading this team out, I'm so proud".

Fans celebrated the victory all over France, with fireworks and flares lighting up the sky above Paris and Marseille. "The most important awaits us on Sunday", Deschamps said. "We don't have any chances to win this Cup and of course we are sad".
