Croatia will face France in their first World Cup final on Sunday after overturning a 1-0 deficit to beat England 2-1 after extra time in the semifinal in Moscow.

The manager, who himself was capped 57 times by England, said Sterling was just one of the young players that played a significant role in getting the team a World Cup semifinal for the first time since 1990.

Ivan Perisic tied the score in the 68th minute with his fourth goal of the tournament.

Croatia's defence is considered their weak link with neither Lovren nor centre-back partner Domagoj Vida boasting great pace.

But Croatia found energy after the break when the game opened up, making England's missed first-half opportunities seem all-the-more significant.

Kane should have scored a second, somehow hitting the post from a matter of yards out.

Despite their absence, the brothers are rooting for their home team to claim the winning trophy in England's game against Croatia.

Vrsaljko cleared a John Stones header away from in front of the line, but England had Pickford to thank for a brilliant save as Mandzukic connected with a devilish Perisic cross.

Trippier struck the ball with his right foot and it rose above leaping Dejan Lovren and Mandzukic to the left of the desperate dive of goalkeeper Danijel Subasic, who turned his head and watched the ball land in the upper corner.

It is not known which team Netanyahu was supporting, but during the match he was photographed speaking with Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković. Having ended their famous penalty curse by beating Colombia in a shoot-out in the last 16, they might have fancied repeating here.

The victor of the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog competition, Zsa Zsa the English bulldog, has died aged 9. They drove 30 hours from their home in California so Zsa Zsa could compete for the crown.

They were down against Russian Federation in the quarterfinals and advanced.

England and Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge informed his followers he does not want to see any negativity after the defeat as the squad have "made everyone proud" this month in Russian Federation.

England's players react after losing their FIFA World Cup semi-final match to Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia, July 11, 2018.

Croatia keep dreaming! Vatreni showed themselves and the world what they are capable of. Modric worked his way into the penalty area, shaped to shoot, cross, or cut the ball back but Henderson jockeyed and blocked and made the angle disappear.

However, with Croatia having to play extra-time against Russian Federation and the energy in the opposition, I can see England scraping a narrow victory in a tight game.

Kieran Trippier curled home a fifth minute free-kick that would have made his idol David Beckham proud.

Ivan Perisic has scored four goals at the World Cup for Croatia - only Davor Suker (six) has more.

Perisic came close again and Mandzukic had a shot saved by Pickford as Croatia pressed for the victor but it wasn't to come and the game headed into extra-time.

Did you know? Croatia are the first team to come from behind in three straight knockout stage matches to advance at the World Cup.
