Croatia fans ecstatic after ousting England

Football England vs Sweden at World Cup

The victory sets up a final against France on Sunday and improves Croatia's previous best showing at the World Cup, which ended in a 1998 semifinal loss to the host French. France and Belgium will contest the other last-four tie in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday. "We were like lions out there tonight and we will be the same in the final".

Having edged past Denmark on penalties in the last 16, Croatia overcame hosts Russian Federation in another dramatic shootout.

About 10 000 Croatia fans are expected in the 80 000-crowd at the Luzhniki Stadium, including Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic.

- England have enjoyed a fairly straightforward route to the World Cup semi-finals but will momentum prevail?

"I rooted for Croatia, wearing a Croatia jersey, and I could only dream of playing for my country and scoring one of the most important goals to send us to a final". They took photographs of themselves with the crowd and unfurled a banner saying "we play for you".

Fans in the capital of Zagreb felt every kick of their side's 4-3 penalty shootout win. They are in the better half of the draw and we have a proper team, full of quality, full of experience.

"Clearly, we wanted to go even further but sadly today we could not", coach Stanislav Cherchesov said, addressing the crowd. "God willing, we will be world champions".

And physical preparation. if the player is not in good physical shape, he will not play well in a World Cup.

The last quarter-final match was played between England and Sweden. Goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev said the team had played with all the heart and soul. So to be here now, leading this team out, I'm so proud. I think he's set to be the next big superstar as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are coming to the end of their careers.
