Comeback kings Croatia revel at World Cup

Kevin De Bruyne is the best ginger in world football

Saturday's victory on penalties against hosts Russian Federation was their second successive match to go to a shoot-out after they were pushed all the way by Denmark in the last 16 six days earlier.

"@GarethSouthgate and his team have brought the country together and delivered our best World Cup result since 1990".

We say fair play to them for letting loose before their big match with Croatia tonight. I'm proud of how far we came and proud of Gareth Southgate.

"Now I've got to go". Croatia has never advanced to the championship match.

Subasic made three saves in the round-of-16 shootout against Denmark, and stopped the first against Russian Federation for a total of four to match Harald Schumacher of West Germany and Sergio Goygochea of Argentina for the most in a single World Cup.

- What's Croatia's problem with Luka Modric?

"I'm so pleased for him because he's a great person as well". But he saved fantastically the first shot in the shootout.

That focus on collective success over individual achievement has been key to England's success this summer, putting them within touching distance of joining the heroes of 1966 as the only team to make a World Cup final.

Justin Timberlake led the way for a whole host of stars when he revealed to fans he was planning to air the match during his concert.

When Maguire scored the go-ahead goal in Saturday's 2-0 win over Sweden, his shout of joy was so intense it looked like a shriek of pain.

"France were in the final of the Euros - nearly they are used to being in these sort of big games, and I thought we coped with that side really well, so I don't want any of my players to be frustrated, disappointed". "The improvement and the hunger in the players is very clear for everyone to see", he added.

"There are no favourites at this World Cup, every game is 50-50 and you have to fight it out". This is the 10th largest worldwide allocation, and the biggest of the four countries still in the tournament, but still behind the United States, Brazil, Germany, Colombia, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, China and Australia. "The teams who are hard-working, who are compact and united, these are the teams that are still here".

I have become somewhat adapt at working out the probability as to the way that each FIIFA World Cup match could end, however it is simple mathematics so I haven't suddenly acquired some type of magical skill at predicting the outcome of each match played!

"It was a very hard game for us", man of the match Ivan Perisic, who cancelled out Kieran Trippier's early goal with a fine effort of his own, said.

"I don't know what will happen if we win, probably nobody will go to work".
