Croatia were lions, says scorer Mandzukic

Croatia were lions, says scorer Mandzukic

Unpredictability is the operative word for this year's cup, as no one predicted that only European teams would be left on the field; that Brazil would have been knocked out of the semi-finals; and that Russian Federation had gone as far as it did.

Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and several other politicians wore the national team's football shirt to a meeting of the government on Thursday.

"What our players did today, the strength they've shown, the stamina, the energy levels".

That sparked scenes of jubilance as Croatia secured their progression into the final.

While speaking to media after winning the semi-final match against England, Luka Modric slammed British media saying that English journalists and pundits on television were talking prior to this match about Croatia being exhausted, being the walking dead.

"Mentally strong team", Rakatic said. "English journalists, pundits from television", he told ITV. Should they hold on, the Three Lions will take on France in the final on Sunday.

Manchester United midfielder Pogba, praised the youngsters on Twitter and described them as "heroes" after they spent more than two weeks trapped inside the flooded cave system. "It looked like as the game advanced, we improved physically and that was impressive". It's an awesome achievement for us, it's a dream come true after such a long time. "Be careful with flares and fireworks so we can (finally) watch Vatreni", was the message of the video below. "It is the biggest success in Croatian history in sport and we have to be proud". "He deserves all the accolades he gets, from the media and public".

The Croats entered the match after winning their previous two games on penalty kicks, but they showed no sign of fatigue in the second half against England.

But that was not the case.
