Croatia hopes it has finally found a team

Harry Maguire girlfriend Fern Hawkins stunned as she supported the footballer in the crowd

Vrsaljko suffered a knee injury during extra time of his nation's quarter final against Russian Federation, and was swiftly subbed off. Croatia eventually won the match 4-3 on penalties. Fans should expect a fierce midfield contest, and can hopefully look forward to fluid, flowing play.

"We shouldn't be surprised Croatia is in the last four", said Dalic.

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.

Just the small matter of a game in which Croatia stand between Southgate and his ambition of matching Sir Alf Ramsey's feat of taking England to the World Cup final.

The 32-year-old played all 120 minutes inside the Fisht Olympic stadium as Croats were taken to penalties and set up a semi-final match with England in Moscow. Both teams have fought their way valiantly to this point, even getting through penalty shootouts to advance. "There were so many big-quality teams and they are home by now". That's the detail you get in the semifinal of the World Cup.

"In 1986 at Mexico, Belgium finished fourth, but now in Russian Federation we can still finish third, and I think we have to look forward to that".

"All the celebrations and the songs they are singing back home, it inspires us as players to be able to bring the nation together and put smiles on people's faces".

"It's so special to do something with the national team".

"It is going to be a hard moment for us to manage, but we have to do it quickly and get going".

"We have already accomplished something but this team can do more", he said.

Victories over Nigeria, Argentina and Iceland in the group stages were followed by penalty-shootout wins against Denmark and Russian Federation in the knockout phase.

"We've been always returning to the 1998 team, putting a new burden on Modric and his team".

He said: "It's a special feeling to know that the people back home and out here in Russian Federation are enjoying the experience just as much as we are".
