Pogba speaks on France vs Croatia match

It is a World Cup showpiece and we must play to win, as always with England.

He added, "Croatia came from a goal down against England on Wednesday to win 2-1 in extra time". Maybe England and the English media didn't do that this time.

With Croatia just one game away from that reality we caught up with the mad Croatian fan from Brazil's capital Brasilia. "Everyone has been talking about it constantly but the only thing that matters now is that Croatia have made it to the final". We savour [the win] a little, but we must now focus on the final.

While the Three Lions finished fourth at Italia 90, England's women came third at the World Cup in 2015 and striker Eni Aluko responded to Shearer's comments on Twitter, replying: 'I am sure they'll change their minds on the importance of the game if/when they get a bronze medal. The players accepted the criticism they received, they took it on board and improved. "The fans are excited to watch us play and that's how we have to keep progressing", he said.

Fear of France hatching a plan to stop Modric: "We are not afraid that they will try to take Modric out of the game because we have other players". We stay as we are from the start of the tournament. "He's win everything with his club but not with the national team; it would put the seal on his playing career".

As for England , they breezed past Sweden 2-0 to seal their first World Cup semi-final appearance since Italia 90. Dividing lines have been drawn among Perth soccer fans as England's and Croatia's World Cup campaigns collide.

A win in the final would mark an huge victory for the country that broke away from Yugoslavia to become an independent state in 1991 - a year after its national soccer team started playing. It's extremely tough on my players. It is the least the country will expect, particularly as Belgium beat us and seemed to enjoy it in our earlier group meeting'.

"Maybe the dear Lord is giving us an opportunity to settle a score, " he said.

Jose Mourinho said: "France scored [against Belgium] and then they tried to control the game, which they did, with a fantastic performance by Raphael Varane and a very good performance by Pogba".

Writing Croatia's name in the history books: "We'll be in the history books for being, along with Uruguay, the smallest country to play in the final".

"We are extremely proud of what we have achieved".
