"We were the better team in all aspects of the game", said Dalic.

The Croatian players were quick to tend to Cortez when they realised what had happened and there were plenty of smiles all round.

Tickets to watch England play their World Cup semi-final against Croatia at Peterborough's World Cup street party are running out. That evenness is why France is the team to beat in the mind of Jeffrey Marcus, publisher of the World Cup newsletter "The Banter".

"I'm trying to get the balance right of recognising tonight was a wonderful opportunity for us and you can't guarantee that those opportunities come again", the England boss said. "We've all grown up watching England and to represent your country at a semi-final of a World Cup, there's no better feeling".

No team has ever made it to the World Cup final after going to extra-time in all three prior knockout rounds - England twice won in extra-time in 1990 before losing on penalties to West Germany in the semi-finals.

"But for these players, many have come of age on an global stage and I couldn't be prouder with what they've done".

"I've got a amusing feeling that the momentum is so good, and, you know, especially now that we're all going to turn up with special Gareth waistcoats, and that can only help can't it", said fan Lee Walkup, 50.




"We know what it takes and in such moments you forget any fatigue you may feel", said the 29-year-old Liverpool player.

"The ability of the team and the style of play we've evolved enormously in a short period of time". There's a long way for us to go.

As shutters flashed around them, a concerned Ivan Rakitic held the photographer's head, defender Domagoj Vida planted a kiss on the head, and the three helped the smiling photographer up.

"But we have our hearts, our pride and our players and that is what is really important to us".

Croatian players competed for Yugoslavia between 1945 and 1990 and the modern Croatian FA was not recognised by Federation Internationale de Football Association and UEFA until 1993.

Pogba said while Croatia midfielder Luka Modric was their driving force the French plan would not be limited to stopping the Real Madrid playmaker.
