Croatia coach says team has top players in world

Croatia coach says team has top players in world

"I've seen lots of ex-players and had lots of messages from ex-players as well who have the same view, so we're really pleased with his contribution, and his work-rate as well without the ball has been incredible for us". England has not been as far as the semi-finals since they last hosted the tournament in 1966.

"Even when things don't exactly go Les Bleus' way, these young hardworking players get impressive results", Marcus said in Tuesday's edition of "The Banter."

After his team fell behind, Martinez took off Dembele and pulled De Bruyne back into central midfield, and though Belgium did not get a goal, they controlled the play better and created more chances.

With a team featuring Davor Suker, Zvonimir Boban and Robert Prosinecki wearing blues shirts with a distinctive red and white chequerboard pattern, they beat World Cup giants Germany 3-0 in the quarter-finals in France, sparking delirium at home.

The force issued the threat after disorder across the country made headlines in the wake of England's World Cup victory against Sweden on Saturday.




"The welcome of the Russian people has been top", Southgate said.

Kane told journalist: "It's unbelievable to meet any heroes from '66 and it gives you so much inspiration, obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament".

"FIFA's priority remains the health of everyone involved in the operation and we will look into finding a new opportunity to invite the boys to a Federation Internationale de Football Association event to share with them a moment of communion and celebration", a spokesman said.

France probably should have doubled their advantaged in added time when Bayern Munich's Corentin Tolisso was played in on goal, but his effort was well saved by the solid Courtois. To try to finish third in the World Cup doesn't happen often. We need to be ready to win that game.

"I'm not saying I'm not proud of what we did 20 years ago - no-one can erase that - but one must live in their times". Of the tournament's star players, Romelu Lukaku has performed as strongly as we expected him to.
