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

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

The ongoing Fifa World Cup has delivered classic after classic.

He added: "President Vladimir Putin called me during the day and called me right now".

Thoughts of history and playing greats of the past are never far away at World Cup semi-finals.

The two sides are evenly matched, so it's a hard one to call, but the Red Devils were perhaps a little fortunate to only concede one goal against Brazil, who spurned several promising opportunities and were controversially denied a penalty.

And Southgate joked that it was unusual for fans to be following his fashion choices but said his squad are appreciating the support from back in England. "That's why, for us, it was the game of the World Cup, no matter what happens".

Phil has assured us that this is all a bit of fun and that he's not trying to exploit his pet to get rich - and we of course believe him.

But they're out, leaving the unusual quartet of France, Belgium, Croatia and England.

England head coach Gareth Southgate, center, hugs Kieran Trippier after the round-of-16 match between Colombia and England at the 2018 World Cup in Moscow on July 3, 2018.

With Belgium's instability, Emily is predicting that France will win this semi-final match and make it to the final stage of the Fifa World Cup.

Mbappe has scored three goals in the tournament and two of those came against Argentina in the crucial round of 16 game.

Out of the 60 football games played in this World Cup, the football governing body FIFA named hosts Russian Federation as the best defending team so far. Saturday's thriller between hosts Russian Federation and 1998 bronze medalists Croatia was one of them. "If it wasn't for the World Cup, I think I would have ended [my career] earlier", Ignashevich said in a video on social media. Combine their runs in behind defences with Raheem Sterling's tremendous pace, England's threat from set-pieces and a goal-hungry team, and Croatia's centre-backs could have a long evening ahead.

It's without a doubt the best opportunity for Thibaut Courtois, Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard to win a major global trophy.
