Croatia's fairytale run to the World Cup final is a footballing "miracle" built on a foundation of teamwork and unity which has seen them outlast sides reliant on brilliant individual talent, coach Zlatko Dalic said on Thursday. But it's safe to say that with the third-place match now set, Belgium and England will have competed in two of the least essential matches of the 2018 World Cup.

England fans are the subject of a Federation Internationale de Football Association investigation after claims were made that "possibly discriminatory" chants were sung during the Three Lions' World Cup semi final loss to Croatia.

Coming into it, I did not really know what to expect in Russian Federation and like everyone else I was a bit anxious about what might happen.

The final blow was inflected when striker Mario Mandzukic put the Croatians 2-1 ahead in the 109th minute to send them through to the final.

"But at this World Cup, the star-studded teams relying on the big names are already on the beach".

The tournament has been a gripping contest between 32 teams who have all dazzled under the lights at the grandest stage of them all.

Novak Djokovic is Serbia´s best-known sportsman and an idol in his country, but when the 12-time Grand Slam victor voiced support for the Croatia World Cup team, he was condemned by Vladimir Djukanovic, a lawmaker from the ruling Serbian Progressive Party. But once you're here and played as well as we did, you want to take those opportunities in life.

On average, every player from the four remaining teams - France, Croatia, England and Belgium - has been tested four times since January, with some tested up to eight times.

"The gaffer had a little word afterwards and told us we should all be proud of ourselves", he said. "We will see who wins, though it makes no difference to me".

"They have had a view of what's possible and that was my experience in my first tournaments with England".

"Two players played with half a leg, but it didn't show". Well, I would sacrifice many things!

The Croats needed extra-time and penalties for the second successive knockout game, beating Russian Federation last time, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see them tire at some point in this game. He knows England's defenders well from the Premier League and will offer a signficant test of pace and strength for a backline that played 120 minutes in the semifinals and has had one day less to rest.

"I'm feeling really confident", said Danny Stroud, 26, who was among supporters watching the game before Croatia scored their equaliser.
