A look at what's ahead in the World Cup

World Cup final 2018- world cup trophy

Russia's unexpectedly strong performance in World Cup 2018 has won over a new generation of fans despite the team's exit at the quarter-final stage.

With a number of Croatia's players the wrong side of 30 - Corluka is 32 - the versatile veteran acknowledges time is running out for his team to surpass their fabled 1998 side, who reached the World Cup semi-finals in France before taking bronze.

England are on the cusp of a World Cup final - and Charlie Nicholas is back with his semi-final predictions. We watched England in all their games and they play really well.

They were accused of embezzling 15 million euros ($17.6 million) through fictitious deals during transfers of several Dinamo players to clubs outside Croatia.

"We know them well".

Vrsaljko's absence will come as a big boost for England manager Gareth Southgate and takes one of Croatia's most experienced defenders out of contention. "We want more", Modric said after tasting victory in the quarterfinal against Russian Federation.

Eight of England's 11 goals so far have come via free kicks, corners or penalties, which is four more than any other team and the most since Portugal also scored eight set-piece goals at the World Cup in 1966. It's great. You see the atmosphere back home.

"Hopefully, we can get through and go on to the final", he said on being asked about England's semifinal clash against Croatia on Saturday. "It's a proud moment for us all when we put on the jersey and I'm going to grab it with both hands, run with it and enjoy it as much as we can". When Ivan Rakitic's penalty sealed Croatia's spot in the semifinals, the coach broke down into tears.

"We have already accomplished something but this team can do more", he said.

"Even those who didn't believe in them started believing, in the end".

Luka Modric is the world's best midfielder and Croatia's greatest ever player, according to Jermaine Jenas.

After such tight matches, it is easy to forget that Croatia produced a feast of attacking play to destroy Lionel Messi's Argentina 3-0 in the group phase. "We made lots of changes to help us be successful and seeing the younger teams win has been hugely rewarding".
