Argentina's Pitana to referee World Cup final

Argentina's Pitana to referee World Cup final

Rakitic has been one of Croatia's heroes this tournament.

"Those experts who thought that England would progress to the final are not experts", Dalic said in his post match press conference. Domagoj Vida put Croatia in front in the extra-time but Mario Fernandes' header in the dying minutes saw Russian Federation level the score 2-2. France have been in two finals in the last twenty years, one of which they won.

Pitana, who has been an global referee since 2010, is one of South America's most experienced referees and also has a playing experience at youth level.

"England we're proud of you, that's all I've got to say". The players look like they would die for each other on the pitch in the effort they put in.

Mawson, at 24, is older than the rest and is expected to feature heavily in England's future, not least with central defensive options relatively threadbare (for all that Trevoh Chalobah, on loan at Ipswich from Chelsea, caught the eye).

But an unlikely win over France would make them legends beyond their country's borders.

"We were anxious", Katich said.

"We had hoped (for this) and we believed in our team, but the feeling when we finally entered the finals can not be compared to anything", said Ivan Kecerin, 41.

The step has been taken to ensure that Nawaz Sharif doesn't turn public opinion in his favour for the upcoming elections. As per ANI, the PML (N) president said, "We thought Bangladesh is a baggage and it slipped off our hands".

While coach Gareth Southgate and his players were humble and generous throughout this tournament, British journalists might be partially to blame for Croatia playing so well earlier this week.

He had a tough time against Croatia and has not had a shot on target for more than four and a half hours, but Kane still leads the race for the Golden Boot.

"We dominated the game physically, mentally, in all aspects".

Plenkovic, who returned from Moscow where he attended the semi-final, congratulated the squad on a "fascinating success for Croatian sports and football".

It turns out Croatia was listening and reading.

Captain Luka Modric repeatedly said: "We have shown our character". They should be humble and respect opponents more. He felt that big games are lost on small margins.

The Croats needed extra-time and penalties for the second successive knockout game, beating Russian Federation last time, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see them tire at some point in this game.
