England beat Sweden to reach their first World Cup semi-final since 1990. "We were lucky", Dalic told the post-match press conference, reports Xinhua news agency.

And then there were four; the World Cup now has its four semi-finalists after a typically thrilling set of quarter-finals: here are four things we learned as eight contenders for the title were reduced to four.

"We know where we are, we know we're not the finished article and I don't think we have loads of world class players".

With the crowd silenced following an extra-time header from Croatia defender Domagoj Vida in the 101st minute, Russian Federation defender Mario Fernandes scored with his own header in the 115th to send the match to the penalty shootout.

The French players danced on the field after their victory but toned it down slightly to shake hands with Thierry Henry, who helped Les Bleus win the World Cup in 1998 and is now Belgium's assistant coach. Meticulous preparation - including a trip to the United States to take in an National Basketball Association game - the selection of specific players with strong dead-ball delivery, and the defensive nature of high-pressure tournament soccer has led to a point where set pieces could yet lead England to a second World Cup title. It might never come around again for me, so I'm trying to take every opportunity, bringing everything I've learned at [Manchester] City and my career to the table.

Team official and former worldwide Ognjen Vukojevic was expelled from the delegation for making a pro-Ukraine video with defender Domagoj Vida.

No-one expected Russian Federation to provide much fight against Croatia and it is to their vast credit they fought back deep into extra time to force penalties.

Southgate added: "I only played for three clubs, I have a real affinity with all three, but England has been the biggest part of my life really".

World Cup 2022 held in Qatar, the coach of Russia Stanislav Cherchesov has promised football fans a great result at the championship. We wanted to repay him. Croatia reached the quarterfinals in its first tournament in 1996 and has advanced that far only once since.

Many on the team were impressive during the tournament, however, and could now demand vastly improved salaries, including Dzyuba, creative midfielder Alexander Golovin and fullback Mario Fernandes.

Other players took turns thanking supporters before the ceremony ended with a rousing rendition of the Russian national anthem.

Subasic's four shootout saves are tied with Harald Schumacher of West Germany and Sergio Goygochea of Argentina for the most in a single World Cup.
