Reasons why Croatia will win the World Cup

Luka Modric Croatia World Cup jail

After Croatia's win, Modric told ITV Sport: 'We proved everything differently that people were talking.

This will be Pitana's fifth match in this World Cup, after serving justice in Russia-Saudi Arabia (Group A, opening match), Mexico-Sweden (Group F), Croatia-Denmark (round of 16) and Uruguay-France ( quarter finals).

"It was disappointing seeing them lose against Croatia, but now we've got the play-off with Belgium so we might travel down to Saint Petersburg for that".

Harry Kane, England's 24-year-old star, has become one of the great goal scorers in the world by hanging near the box and pummeling opposing keepers with a barrage of shots with both feet.

COMEBACKS: The lesson of this World Cup is not to write off Croatia.

"The victory over Argentina, the extra time!"

"Congratulations Croatia. Politics, sport, the region and the world have all come together tonight", Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev tweeted along with a photo of himself and Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

Rakitic has played nearly 70 games this season for club and country, including Wednesday's semi-final win over England. It was little wonder Mandzukic produced an extra-time victor.

Serena Williams surprised by semi-final spot at Wimbledon
She explained: "I changed my approach to the surface". "But I will sort out some tactics with my team. and we'll be ready". Pliskova was beaten 6-3, 7-6 (1) by No. 20 Kiki Bertens , who eliminated Williams' sister, Venus, last week.

Both teams will line up in Saint Petersburg with a sense of what might have been as France and Croatia prepare for Sunday's final in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, but they will want to leave Russian Federation on a high.

While Southgate was proud of his young team's achievement, he said they were under no "illusions" about where they stand in world football.

"His linesmen were also fantastic", Croatia's Ivan Rakitic said of Pitana.

In a region still scarred by the conflicts of the 1990s in which 130,000 people died, many people find it hard to throw their support behind Croatia despite a common language and culture. Modric's mind games worked, stirring the players. On Sunday, I will be at least number two. While the average age of Croatia's squad is pushing 28, for France it's 26.

"I used to say give me a Real Madrid or a Barcelona and I will win titles, but now I am in the final of the World Cup".

M&Ms: Croatia wouldn't be in the final without the creativity of Modric and energetic attacking drive of Mandzukic, allied with Rakitic.

"They have incredible talent", he said.
