Didier Deschamps: Paul Pogba was nearly everywhere against Belgium

Didier Deschamps: Paul Pogba was nearly everywhere against Belgium

Dalic´s side were clearly exhausted, but they managed to fight on to the end of two hours of gripping football to take the country of just over four million people into the final for the first time.

But he is far from the only footballer to sport an eye-catching tattoo over the years.

France's forward Kylian Mbappe runs with the ball during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup semifinal football match between France and Belgium at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in Saint Petersburg on July 10, 2018.

The CFF had entitled a tweet about Ivan Perišić: 'Talk about your dreams coming true!'

"First time in the final ever for Croatia, now we're going to go all the way (to win the World Cup)".

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic scored the victor deep into the second half of extra time to set up a World Cup Final meeting with France in Moscow on Sunday.

There's no doubt they would be deserved winners having beaten the likes of Belgium and Brazil en route to the trophy and Pogba has played a huge role in it all.

Bear in mind that only performances at the World Cup were considered for these rankings.

With a final score of England 6-1 Panama, there's plenty of great goals to choose from in this match. Thuram scored the go-ahead goal with a curling shot in the 70th minute, and France won 2-1.




"This is something indescribable", said Perišić in the aftermath. SkyBet had France's odds to win the World Cup outright were set at 1/2.

"Again there was drama, it couldn't have been otherwise".

Given they arrived in Russian Federation as rank outsiders, however, Southgate was invited to detail the positives from a campaign that appears to have repaired the strained relationship between England and its team.

"And that is a real feature of this generation of players".

"We've left everything out there".

England lost much of their first-half momentum after the break.

Kieran Tripper, who was perhaps England's best player out in Russian Federation and scored on the night, was comforted by wife Charlotte and their young daughter. But they also pay tribute to a memorable World Cup campaign by the Three Lions, in which Gareth Southgate's side exceeded expectations. Croatian coach Zlatko Dalic said. Now, a new generation, inspired by captain Luka Modric, has created its own history.

"Every time we wear the shirt of our national team, we want to play with pride and play well and win".
