Croatia fear England's Sterling in World Cup semi

Putin urges Russia to make World Cup history against Croatia also England vs Sweden

They've gone 120 minutes twice in a week.

Sadly for Fox and soccer fans, there's a few days of World Cup silence until France take on Belgium on July 10 and then England v. Croatia the next day. While they have a case when it comes to political symbols and the like, this is merely a player remembering his friend who died.

"My mum and sister watched every one of their World Cup games at my place, passionately supporting them, and they have never watched football in their lives!"

Dalic, however, said there was plenty left in the tank. "We did not want to risk some passes that would tip the balance in our favour".

Striker Romelu Lukaku has four goals and an assist in his four games and has drawn praise for his unselfish play.

There we have it, Croatia will face England on Wednesday (July 11) for the semi-final stage of the tournament. Defensively they're getting better throughout the tournament with Hugo Lloris getting rid of his mistakes, plus Varane and Umtiti a fine central defensive partnership.

Croatia beat Russian Federation in penalties and proceeded to a semi-final encounter against England on Thursday.

Belgium's Romalu Lukaku: My game is about more than scoring goals
Brazil chased an equaliser in the last 14 minutes of the match in the wake of substitute Renato Augusto's fine headed goal. It's one thing to go rehab with your trusted friends and advisers away from your team.

Croatia is the first team to win consecutive penalty shootouts since Argentina in 1990 and it's the first time the host country has lost in a shootout since Italy in the same year.

Croatia, a shadow of the team which cruised through their group with maximum points, went ahead when Vida met a corner with a weak downward header which found its way through two sets of legs and rolled into the net. You have to pay the toll for such exertions. "Thank God everything is fine with him".

Ivan Rakitic scored the victor from the spot as Russian goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev dived the opposite direction.

Russian Federation came back into the game five minutes before the end of the extra time as Mario Fernandes scored to force the match into penalties. I felt really relieved. "We made ourselves happy but we also made everybody back home in Croatia happy". Those emotions burst out of me. "I would like to become a coach, a good coach".

The team landed in Moscow just after 3:30 pm CET on Sunday after a memorable night in Sochi beating the hosts Russian Federation. Sime Vrsaljko went off injured in extra time and Mario Mandzukic and Danijel Subasic also looked as if they were in some discomfort.

Belgium has scored 14 goals in five matches and was hugely impressive in their 2-1 quarter-final victory over Brazil, with Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne combining to devastating effect to oust the five-times world champions.
