Croatia's president dances with team after victory against Russian Federation

Mamic was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison and left Croatia for Bosnia-Herzegovina before the verdict was reached on June 6.

"I would give Luka three votes if I could", said Suker, who played for Sevilla, Real Madrid, Arsenal, West Ham and 1860 Munich during his career, and is now his country's football supremo, after Modric helped Croatia beat Russian Federation on penalties in the quarter-finals.

England have for long desired to be at this stage.

A decade ago, England had one of the best set-piece takers in soccer in David Beckham, whose precision and ability to curl the ball in from the wing was an important weapon at major tournaments. They took photographs of themselves with the crowd and unfurled a banner saying "we play for you".

"But we are looking forward to a different style of game against England because they like to play attacking football".

He nailed the semi-finals.

. "Thank you for your support, I'm happy to see so many people here".

It promises to be an epic battle when Croatian experience takes on English youth. When Ivan Rakitic's penalty sealed Croatia's spot in the semifinals, the coach broke down into tears.

"This is really a big day for Croatian sport and football, it is a success that we will remember for generations".

And Jenas, who now works as a pundit for the BBC, thinks England must negotiate a tie featuring the best midfielder in the world football if they are to get there. Gareth Southgate, though, has made this young squad believe in their collective strength.

He hopes England will be more suited to their style of play, but added that recovering from two extended games will be hard.


Barcelona signed him in 2014 and although he has won everything with his clubs - including three leagues, one Champions League title and a Europa League trophy - he is yet to lift a trophy with his national team.

"Even though they've not had as much game-time as they would have liked, they are as much of a reason why we are where we are. We are a country of four million people", said the 22-year-old.

"They are doing fantastic".

England started off with a hard-fought victory against Tunisia, and if that fuelled belief, they thrashed Panama 6-1 in their next match.

Jordan Henderson is a vital fabric of what England want to do - it will be a huge boost if he's fit.

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is fast and unsafe alongside Harry Kane", Dalic said in a press conference Sunday. Can we beat Croatia? Saturday's thriller between hosts Russian Federation and 1998 bronze medalists Croatia was one of them.

"Play SportsMax Predictor game for a chance to win up to $125k United States dollars!" "We need to keep going game by game".

"We are a sold-out event and there's massive interest. Not many of us remember that far back".

In order to win, England will need to contain Modric, who is involved in nearly every Croatian attack, controlling the pace, and scoring twice, including in the impressive 3-0 win over Lionel Messi's Argentina. Yet, they have the players who have been there and done that and know when to turn up.

"I was concentrated throughout the match but after Rakitic's penalty, it came bursting out of me", he said.
