The Inter Milan winger added millions to his transfer value with a clutch performance, stepping up when his country needed him most.

"It's an experience for us", said the Everton stopper.

"I was just changing my lens as the players ran towards me", Cortez told AFP. In big games it's small margins.

"For Croatian football and Croatia as a country, this is history being written".

"It's enjoyable, we all love to play the game and fans love to support it".

He will just be hoping that all of them are fit enough for one last effort against a fearsome French side.
