It is only the second time that Croatia have reached the World Cup semi-finals since becoming an independent nation.

Luka Modric won the man of the match award for the third time in five games at this World Cup, with a superb array of passing from a deep role in midfield.

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is fast and risky alongside Harry Kane", Dalic said in a press conference Sunday.

"And now I want to say to English fans: "Guys, get it together, come to Russian Federation and support your national team because they have gotten into the semi-final", she said. "We have two matches to play, we are very motivated, we will give our all".

Ivan Rakitic converted the decisive spot-kick after Mario Fernandes, who had netted an equaliser for Russian Federation with five minutes of extra-time remaining, hit his effort from 12 yards wide.

The Three Lions take on Croatia in Moscow on Wednesday looking to earn a place in Sunday's final.

Croatia are viewed as favourites to reach the last four for only the second time since their independence, nearly 20 years to the day that their esteemed class of 1998 took on France - the home side back then, too - for a place in the final.

"We expect the president to attend the closing match", he said.

Back in England, the national team - vilified after the debacle at Euro 2016 - is once more a source of pride.

Thibaut Courtois made a string of brilliant saves to keep Brazil at bay, Jordan Pickford made three magnificent stops to keep Sweden out, Hugo Lloris made out great save against Uruguay for France when the score was still 0-0 and Danijel Subasic was once again an intimidating presence in the penalty shootout as Croatia got past Russian Federation. "I felt really relieved", Dalic said.

The Swedes were playing in the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time since 1994, when they reached the semifinals.

Other players took turns thanking supporters before the ceremony ended with a rousing rendition of the Russian national anthem.

"To beat them, we'll have to make our own luck ... we'll have to be ready to suffer".

Harry Kane, meanwhile, believes England's World Cup heroes can inspire a generation - just like he was as a young fan.

"This is the character of the four teams remaining in the tournament".
