Dier wary of 'world class' Rakitic and Modric

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".

Croatia, who have reached the final for the first time in their history, will play France on Sunday.

Sterling did produce an encouraging display in the quarter-final win over Sweden and was a constant threat throughout the 2-0 success in Samara. "But hopefully we can do our jobs on Wednesday as a team and individuals and contain them".

"We have to play as if this were the first game in this tournament". We have shown character.

Goal scorer Umtiti said the win had come on the back of the work of the entire team. "They have players like Harry Maguire, Harry Kane, John Stones and others, who are very strong". "I wanted to make substitutions but nobody would come off".

May received the number 10 jersey of Croatia captain Luka Modric.

In one of the less memorable games of Russian Federation 2018 at the venue of the final, Denmark and France played out a goalless draw - a result which saw both sides progress, with Les Bleus top of the group.

Eric Dier has warned England will face one of the best players in the world tonight.

Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera fumbled a shot from Antoine Griezmann as France booked their place in the World Cup semi-finals. "We were all happy, all hugging", Mbappe said.

"We played better than we did against Argentina".

Mbappe appeared unsafe throughout, creating six scoring chances for his side, who will wait the winners of Wednesday's other semi between England and Croatia.

With a population of just over four million, Croatia is the smallest nation to reach the final match of a World Cup since Uruguay lifted the title in 1950.

He said: "I don't read what is going on in England, I am reading about my own country after each game".

"You don't get success in football and good weather in England", said Nikki Langley-Essen, 38, a London events manager enjoying the novelty of both. "But we have our hearts, our pride and our players and that is what is really important to us".
