Croatia Sacks Coach Ahead of Semi Final Clash with England

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic gave her U.S. counterpart Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May Croatia jerseys Wednesday ahead of the World Cup semi-final against England.

"I agree Croatia has several more experienced players", Mandzukic said.

Croatia's first World Cup semifinal for two decades has revived the memories of the country's football highpoint and raised hopes that Luka Modric's side can go one better than their legendary predecessors.

Croatia's President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic shakes hands with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev next to FIFA president Gianni Infantino prior to the start of the Russia 2018 World Cup quarter-final football match between Russia and Croatia at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi on July 7, 2018. In the end it was Ivan Rakitic's penalty which brought a conclusion to a World Cup semi final which was already more than two hours old.

Croatia came back from a goal down to draw 1-1 after 90 minutes and thought they had done enough to win when they took the lead through Domagoj Vida in extra time, but Mario Fernandes headed home a free kick to make it 2-2 and take it to penalties, which the Croatians won 4-3.

England's last appearance at this stage was in 1990 when they lost in a penalty shootout to West Germany in Turin while eight years later, in their first World Cup as an independent nation, Croatia lost to hosts and eventual winners France.

Nicknamed "the Fiery Ones", that team has stood as an example to their successors ever since.

"Of course there is some power left for the English - we will not stop, we will try to play our best game then". Cheryshev, a superstar in his own country at the moment, recently denied claims that he used a growth hormone before the World Cup began, according to The Telegraph.

The coach of the 1998 side, Jaroslav Ciro Blazevic, said for a long time he did not want any other team to match his players' achievements. "Why didn't you ask me about when I played well against him?"

"But now. I pray and I would give anything in the world that this squad eventually "confines us to history".

The victory boosted France's morale, and they followed it up with a workman-like 2-0 win over Uruguay that was impressive because of how well they managed to control the game against tricky opponents.

"We've been always returning to the 1998 team, putting a new burden on Modric and his team". "So we should not be surprised that Croatia are in the semi-finals given the quality of the players".

Bilic believes a constant theme in Croatian national sides is they up their game against the historically bigger sides, thus their low key performances against Denmark and Russian Federation, beating both on penalties, should be disregarded.
