Croatian fans at the 2018 FIFA World Cup unfolded a banner in downtown Moscow that conveyed a message of gratitude to Russian Federation, a TASS journalist reported from the event. "Card him!" A red card. The 32-year-old has starred in Russian Federation, and has been named man of the match in three of Croatia's five wins.

London's Hyde Park looks like a war zone after thousands of England fans left after watching their team lose 2-1 to Croatia in the Fifa World Cup semifinals. "There's nothing better than getting an early goal but we needed the next one".

Croatia will be without their right-back Sime Vrsaljko when they face England on their semi-final match of the Russia World Cup 2018 at Luzhniki Stadium.

Kieran Trippier had opened the scoring for the Three Lions with a fifth-minute free-kick before Ivan Perisic equalised in the 68th minute.

But just 10 minutes after that chance, Stones switched off for a split second - allowing Mandzukic to snatch Croatia's winning goal.

Croatia, the first team in 28 years to come from behind to win a World Cup semifinal match, will play France for the title on Sunday in its biggest sporting moment since becoming an independent nation in 1991.

The infectious song, with its chorus "It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming, football's coming home", was written by pop star Ian Broadie and comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner ahead of England's hosting of Euro 96.

At this year's World Cup, teams can pay a heavy price for not getting a second goal to reward itself for a dominating period of play. We achieved success as a compact team who do not give in, who work for one another and this is maybe one of the best periods for Luka. In fact, when Ante Cacic was sacked in October, Dalic was appointed just two days before the final group game in Ukraine, which Croatia won to get a play-off spot.
