Photographer in middle of Croatia’s goal celebration took incredible pictures

Harry Kane admits England's World Cup exit will "hurt for a while" after their hopes were dashed by Croatia.

England and Belgium have already played each other once in this tournament - a lackluster 1-0 Belgium win in a game both coaches stuffed with reserve players since they'd already qualified for the knockout stage. "It was so painful two years ago we have to savor it".

'For me, we are not favourites. The whole thing is beyond where we thought we might go.

"I can not lie that when we beat Germany we thought that was the final". I don't know of a smaller country in a World Cup final. We were so close to what was unimaginable at the start.

Along the way to the final, Croatia have beaten Argentina, Nigeria and Iceland, but have needed extra-time and penalties to see off both Denmark and Russian Federation. In fact, when Ante Cacic was sacked in October, Dalic was appointed just two days before the final group game in Ukraine, which Croatia won to get a play-off spot.

And around 1,500 supporters will be back there on Wednesday evening to see if England can make a first World Cup final since 1966.

"That is not a sign of a struggling team, according to Pogba, but one that has a lot of talent".

As if the Croats didn't have enough challenges, now they have to worry about playing again in front of an openly hostile crowd in the 81,000-seat Luzhniki Stadium. But they are mentally very strong.

"We have to stay like we are, not think that we are the favourites". Everyone is with us, we're all in this together. "We are chasing something and will do everything to succeed".

With the semi-finals done, it's time to update our World Cup 100-a position-by-position ranking of the top-performing players in Russian Federation. Factor in injury time and successive shootout wins over Denmark and Russian Federation, and Croatia has just played the equivalent of 4½ matches in 11 days.

Well well well, would you look what they've gone and done.

.

Dalic was only appointed as Croatia coach towards the end of their qualifying campaign, leading them to Russian Federation via a play-off win against Greece.

'I do not have a star.

"The Croats are not just Modric".

Croatia's Ivan Rakitic celebrates with an AFP photographer Yuri Cortez after Mario Mandzukic scores their second goal.

"Even their defenders are outstanding players".

As the Croatian side celebrated the monumental goal, they moved towards an area of the sideline that did not have a barrier between the field and the photographers covering the game. The 32-year-old has starred in Russian Federation, and has been named man of the match in three of Croatia's five wins.
