While the Three Lions finished fourth at Italia 90, England's women came third at the World Cup in 2015 and striker Eni Aluko responded to Shearer's comments on Twitter, replying: 'I am sure they'll change their minds on the importance of the game if/when they get a bronze medal.

Writing Croatia's name in the history books: "We'll be in the history books for being, along with Uruguay, the smallest country to play in the final". Winning the match is not an obligation but something we want to do.

"Congratulations with all my heart, bravo!", Miodrag, a resident of Nis in southern Serbia told the website of Serbian state TV on Wednesday after the semi-final win over England.

France, world champions in 1998 after beating Croatia in the semis, are in their third World Cup final.

Les Blues won the European Championship at home in 1984 and in the Netherlands in 2000. "The World Cup may never open up so obligingly again", the paper said.

The Manchester United midfielder was part of the France squad that lost 1-0 in extra time to Portugal in the Euro 2016 final, and Pogba hopes they can now go one better on Sunday.

In Macedonia, most residents are supporting Croatia, despite the nationalist right´s unswerving support for Russian Federation. "I'll be at the park for the party afterwards, for whatever happens". We stay as we are from the start of the tournament. I'm going to make a tattoo of Croatia on me, it will be my first tattoo!

Danish referee Kim Milton Nielson allowed the goal to stand. Nielson had called a questionable foul for a free kick that led to Zinedine Zidane scoring the opening goal in the 48th minute.

In a region still scarred by the conflicts of the 1990s in which 130,000 people died, many people find it hard to throw their support behind Croatia despite a common language and culture.

Jose Mourinho said: "France scored [against Belgium] and then they tried to control the game, which they did, with a fantastic performance by Raphael Varane and a very good performance by Pogba".

A swastika became visible on the field of the closed-doors match, caused by a chemical agent put in the grass at Poljud Stadium. This shows character and is what makes me proud.
