  • President Arrives in Sochi to Meet Russian Prime Minister and Attend World Cup Match

World Cup semi-finals England - Croatia will be held on July 11 in Moscow. Starting right back Sime Vrsaljko had to be replaced during extra time with an apparent leg injury, though fellow defender Dejan Lovren was optimistic Sunday that Vrsaljko would be able to play with the semifinal looming on Wednesday.

Croatia struggled to find rhythm in their penalty shootout knockout game victories against Denmark and Russian Federation with boss Zlatko Dalic claiming the defensive style of their opponents stifled their creativity.

Despite the team's heartbreaking defeat, the entire country, including fans and pundits, praised the players for their heroic World Cup display.

"I've known Luka for a number of years, not only from the national team", Mandzukic told reporters.

"I was concentrated throughout the match, but after Rakitic's penalty the emotion came bursting out of me". Meanwhile, England have conceded just twice before half-time in their 15 competitive matches back to the start of qualification and seven of their nine matches against top-50 ranked teams in this sample were level at the break.

The last quarter-final match was played between England and Sweden.

"Of course there is some power left for the English - we will not stop, we will try to play our best game then. The teams who are hard-working, who are compact and united, these are the teams that are still here".

"In four years' time in Qatar we will be better", Cherchesov added, referring to the next World Cup tournament. The favourites, the big teams are home.

Vida later said he was joking and "the victory is for Croatia, no politics".

But Dalic said: "I don't think England had easy opponents, they made it look easy".

When they face England, both sides will already know whether France or Belgium have reached the final.

"We came to support our team as we do not think they lost", said Kristina Ladygina, waiting at the Federation Internationale de Football Association "fan fest" zone for the players to appear. "Maybe we can change something".
