Croatia captain Luka Modric: English media underestimated us

"The most important thing for me is that my national team succeeded and that we do something big". We want those who are 100 percent match fit.

"We should kill the game even before extra-time, and this is an awesome achievement for us".

Will France or Croatia win the World Cup?

Modric said Subasic told him that the injury should not be a major factor as Croatia prepare for their semifinal.

"Nobody wanted to give in when I was preparing the first XI, nobody wanted to say I was not ready in extra time, no one wanted to be subbed and this shows character and what makes me proud".

"Putin called me during the day, and he called me right now", Cherchesov said.

The match takes place in Moscow on Wednesday evening, and Dalic has warned his team should not be underestimated.

However, despite Croatia's Manager admitting his side were exhausted after going to penalties two games in a row, Zlatko Dalic said "there will be no excuses".

"There are no favourites at this World Cup, every game is 50-50 and you have to fight it out".

Croatia, despite being the "home" team, will wear their black and blue away strip.

Henderson praised two of the Croatian players, Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric, and Liverpool teammate Dejan Lovren, who plays on the back line.

"We followed the game over dinner", Grabar-Kitarovic said as she entered the last sessions of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit early Thursday, AP reported.
