His last World Cup, says Dalic

Kylian Mbappe

Deschamps now has the chance to become the third person to win the World Cup as a player and a coach, after German great Franz Beckenbauer and Brazil's Mario Zagallo.

Defender Dejan Lovren dismissed suggestions that the team would be exhausted after extra time and two penalty shootouts in their last two match matches.

"It shows we can win knockout games; the next stage is to go one further". But they are mentally very strong. They were losing 1-0 and came back.

Southgate's men took the lead in the fifth minute via a sublime Kieran Trippier free kick, and dominated the game for the vast majority of the first-half.

"For us, we are not the favourites". Before the tournament started, there were doubts over us. "We're not working much now so you can imagine what it will be like if we win". "We worked hard. I scored but we delivered a good match and I'm very proud of everyone".

Samuel Umtiti, the goalscoring hero of the semifinal victory over Belgium, agrees with Pogba's assessment. We want players at 100 per cent fit. We are not thinking about being favourites.

Conventional wisdom holds that Belgium and England will send out the second string again, play a minimum of defense and try to avoid getting any of their high-priced players hurt right before their club seasons begin.

Predicting a "difficult and intriguing match for both teams", the Liverpool centre-back dismissed the notion that Croatia are at a disadvantage because they have had to play 120 minutes twice in a week.

"I was 18 years old in 1998, it was one of the most lovely nights of my life".

Croatian players competed for Yugoslavia between 1945 and 1990 and the modern Croatian FA was not recognised by Federation Internationale de Football Association and UEFA until 1993.

"We've come an incredibly long way in a short space of time".

"But for these players, many have come of age on an worldwide stage and I couldn't be prouder with what they've done".

Croatia's strength clearly lies in the central-midfield department that includes Real's Luka Modric and Barca's Ivan Rakitic.
