The country is expected to consume an extra 10 million pints on the "busiest night of the year" for pubs as England take on Croatia in their World Cup semi-final.

And the World Cup is "Not coming home" now.

Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic is excited to see playing at his best for the Vatreni in his last appearance at the FIFA World Cup.

Croatia were "underestimated" by English pundits who lacked respect, says captain Luka Modric.

The president couldn't care less since the excitement of her country's team reaching the final of the World Cup for the first time was simply too overwhelming. We have two matches to play and we are very motivated.

"We showed again that we were not exhausted - we dominated the game mentally and physically. It's been an enjoyable journey, and we want to keep it going", Southgate, 47, said at a press conference at Luzhniki Stadium on the eve of the Croatia-England clash.

"We are in the final, it's the biggest success in Croatian history in sport and we have to be proud".

4 more boys brought out of flooded Thailand cave
The boys set out to explore the vast Tham Luang cave, which is known in the area as off-limits, after soccer practice on June 23. Narongsak Osottanakorn , head of the rescue operation, said a team of divers went back into the cave Monday morning, local time.

The Golden Ball, won by Lionel Messi in 2014, is the award given to the best player in the World Cup and Croatia striker Mandzukic believes his teammate should definitely be a frontrunner due to his performances in Russian Federation so far.

England should have been two or three goals to the good as they dominated the game for an hour.

The Real Madrid midfielder played a key role in the second half as Croatia came from behind to win with goals from Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic turning their fortunes and setting up a final with France.

'We were unlucky in previous major tournaments, particularly at Euros, but now we are collecting those debts at the World Cup this year'.

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

"Mentally strong team", Rakatic said.
