Samuel Umtiti's 51st-minute header in the semifinal sent the French into the final, where they will be seeking their second win since 1998.

Samuel Umtiti headed the only goal in a 1-0 semi-final win over Belgium in Saint Petersburg on Wednesday (AEST), consigning the Red Devils "golden generation" to another bitter defeat.

The 29-year-old Perisic recalled watching Croatia's last semi-final appearance in 1998, a game won 2-1 by eventual champions France. "I don't have the words".

Meanwhile, one added: "But while most of the nation are fixed to TVs, the pub garden will be roomy and peaceful, ideal for enjoying a sunny summer afternoon free from business for a couple of hours".

"France were in the final of the Euros - nearly they are used to being in these sort of big games, and I thought we coped with that side really well, so I don't want any of my players to be frustrated, disappointed". The Paris St Germain forward scored his first goal with a close-range tap-in after 34 minutes, which proved enough to give Didier Deschamps' side victory at the Central Stadium.

"We have enough time to rest and prepare well", said Modric.

"We can't really look back and see what is in the rear-view mirror. Everyone is with us, we're all in this together".

"I also leave my thanks to every Brazilian that supported us from beginning to end, thank you very much".

Zlatko Dalic's team meet the Three Lions in Wednesday's World Cup semi-final and Dejan Lovren is the only Croatian that could feature who current plies his trade in the Premier League.

Froome and Quintana struggle in opening Tour de France stage
Froome, who is looking for his fifth Tour de France title, crossed the line 51 seconds behind Gaviria. "It was all about trying to win the stage".


"We don't really have much time to rest, after two 120 minutes battles, we are physically and emotionally exhausted", Vrsaljko told HNTV. France's success came against a side which had won the previous World Cup and would go on to win the following tournament in 2002 and contained players such as Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo and Cafu.

"But I'm still 100 per cent proud of them".

"Only football can make all Croatians go out to the streets".

"Luka and Rakitic are the best midfield pair in the World Cup", said Bilic.

"Forty-nine days together, it is a lot of things, hard things, the group stage, it is the merit of everyone", he said.

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin says "even though some of our traditional contenders such as Germany, Spain and Portugal were eliminated, there are other teams which have surpassed expectations and can now win the title".

"A lot of pride", said the defender.

"We played better than we did against Argentina".
