France beat Belgium 1-0 in the World Cup semifinals on Tuesday in St. Petersburg, Russia, advancing to their first World Cup Final since 2006.

Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic had a hamstring injury during extra time against Russian Federation but remained in the match and played his role when the game went to penalties.

"It is true we have not made good results at major tournaments for decades, but we should not be surprised Croatia are in the last four of the World Cup given the quality of the players, which has been proven".

"I wouldn't say there are any glaring weaknesses (in England's team) since they are in the semi-finals, that says it all".

"It's been a fantastic World Cup, of course it's always better for us because we've won some games".

Croatia have never been to a World Cup final, though they reached the semi-finals in 1998 with a team featuring the likes of Slavan Bilic and Davor Suker. "He'd be willing Gareth Southgate and the England team to go all the way in Russian Federation with every fibre of his being".




A World Cup champion will be crowned on Sunday.

Henry did everything he could to help Belgium bring down France, but ultimately the team with more goals than any in the tournament was unable to score in the semifinals.

England take on Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium at 1900BST on Wednesday, hoping to get the win that would see them return to the same venue to face either France or Belgium in the final.

Former Croatia worldwide Filip Tapalovic has been surprised by the nation's World Cup run, highlighting their mentality and team spirit as crucial. "I know I can play better than that". "We have a privilege to get to the final", he said, before saying he was "here to write a new page in history".

Bilic believes a constant theme in Croatian national sides is they up their game against the historically bigger sides, thus their low key performances against Denmark and Russian Federation, beating both on penalties, should be disregarded.

"Hopefully we will go a step further than in 1998".
