There is even a possibility that the final can be played between Belgium and Croatia, where we will see first-time runners-up and a victor. Akinfeev made one save during the shootout and almost had another on Luka Modric, but the shot deflected off Akinfeev's hand, off the post and into the net. "There is a lot of pain because we knew we could go further and make history".

Fyodor Smolov had his first penalty saved by Danijel Subasic and, although Russian Federation goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev saved a Mateo Kovacic kick, their fate appeared sealed when Mario Fernandes fired wide from their third attempt.

"We tried. I think the whole team gave 100 percent".

The date of the last time an England's men's side played in a semi final of a World Cup.

Goalkeeper Subasic was the hero against Denmark, making three penalty saves.

"It doesn't' have to be 3-0", Croatia head coach Zlatko Dalic said.

In both cases, the penalty did not seem sufficient to satisfy Mercedes, or their drivers, after their races were wrecked by rivals' mistakes.


Saturday sees Croatia face the host nation for a place in the semi-finals and Rakitic praised midfield partner Luka Modric ahead of the game.

"This was not a attractive game, it was a fight, a battle for the semi-final", added Dalic, who broke down in tears after Croatia confirmed a first World Cup semi-final appearance since 1998. Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic went into extra time with an apparent right leg injury he picked up in the 89thminute. "We've already accomplished something big, but we want to do more", he told reporters.

Croatia beat Argentina as well, and a win over England would be quality, but the French have been playing at a World Cup champion level for the past few matches, and that will manifest itself if they meet Croatia in the final.

"We leave the tournament with tears in our eyes but our heads held high", the team tweeted as the stadium emptied of the 45,000 or so who had lost their voices cheering them on. "When you've got all these other teams, France, Belgium, England, that's the top teams from the beginning and we are the underdogs".

Mr Peskov said: "He watched, he was rooting for the team".

Cherchesov also revealed he took a phone Call from Russian President Vladimir Putin shortly after the defeat in Sochi. If they trusted us or not, we trusted ourselves. "They were dying on the pitch, we are proud with them", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was quoted as saying.
