  • France's Kylian Mbappe has started to fire at the World Cup

Reflecting Russia's newfound infatuation, a team of street artists spray-painted the mural of Cherchesov pointing a finger on a wall in central St. Petersburg.

The hosts came into the tournament as the lowest-ranked team but have defied expectations by reaching the quarter-finals, defeating 2010 world champions Spain in the round of 16.

Players too thanked the fans for their support.

Croatia will play against England in the semi-final on Wednesday and Vrsaljko is still battling to be fit ahead of the crucial game.

"We didn't have one single complaint of anybody here feeling that the football interfered with their enjoyment of Wimbledon". "We made lots of changes to help us be successful and seeing the younger teams win has been hugely rewarding". "But we showed our worth".

In the shootout, Mateo Kovacic missed his kick for Croatia, but two misses by Russia's Fedor Smolov and Fernandes handed The Blazers passage to the semis where England await.

The third place finishers from the 1998 World Cup have needed penalty shoot-out wins to bypass both Denmark and Russian Federation in the knock-out phase. From the first second I put together this team, I knew where it was heading. I think we can do it.

"Even though they've not had as much game-time as they would have liked, they are as much of a reason why we are where we are". "We told him we were disappointed".

Croatia has played an accumulated game time of 240 minutes in two matches in the round of sixteen and the quarters. They took photographs of themselves with the crowd and unfurled a banner saying "we play for you". Luka Modric has been the pivot of that team but it is also fair to say the team is built on profound unity and strength that has been the precursor to the enormous successes.

A decade ago, England had one of the best set-piece takers in soccer in David Beckham, whose precision and ability to curl the ball in from the wing was an important weapon at major tournaments. "We looked decent. And penalties - it's a question of luck. and fate". "The Local Organising Committee is happy with the way things have gone so far", the 46-year-old said in Moscow in the company of Colin Smith, Fifa's chief tournament and events officer.
