  • Croatia after they beat Russia on penalties during their quarter final match

Federation Internationale de Football Association has employed teams of specialist observers at all World Cup matches to detect possible racist and homophobic chanting and banners at matches.

Kieran Trippier had opened the scoring for the Three Lions with a fifth-minute free-kick before Ivan Perisic equalised in the 68th minute.

While Dalic is bullish about his side's chances, he acknowledged that Croatia found it hard to deal with the threat of England forward Raheem Sterling throughout the semi-final.

Dalic said he had allowed his players to celebrate the victory on Wednesday night and was consequently unaware of the extent of any injuries in his squad.

Across teams, there have been a number of players who have stolen the headlines for their displays and maybe rightly so but there have been many who put in superb shifts for the team.

France will have 24 hours longer to prepare for the game after edging out Belgium 1-0 in 90 minutes in St Petersburg on Tuesday. The Croatian comeback kings dominated those games from a mental and physical perspective.

"It's too easy to sometimes move on too quickly".

England captain Kane told ITV Sport: "It's tough".

Loud cheers rang out after each goal, fans waved the red and white national flag, and after the final whistle Croatian TV showed wild celebrations breaking out in towns and cities.

"We were the better team in all aspects of the game", said Dalic.

So perhaps today we indulge in a joint stroll down memory lane; and discuss our highlights, lowlights and favourite moments of Russian Federation 2018?

This result improves on Croatia's World Cup showing in 1998, when they reached the semifinal stage, but lost to France. We will want to give a performance of huge pride. It's great that they may have had a feeling that playing for England is always misery, regret, recrimination and they have seen that it can be fun, it can be enjoyable.
