Fifa acknowledges World Cup fever in Bangladesh

Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subasic saves the decisive penalty during a penalty shoot out after extra time during the round of 16 match between Croatia

Despite the pre-World Cup barbs and snipes regarding Russia's quality and the politically-charged commentary related to the hosts, they bowed out in style, having exceeded expectations and injected the tournament with a healthy dose of enthusiasm.

Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, who travelled to Russia on a chartered flight along with several Croatian football fans, was seated alongside FIFA president Gianni Infantino and Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev as the game progressed.

Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic has identified Raheem Sterling as England's danger man in the World Cup semi-final on Wednesday.

Belgium won over Brazil advancing to the semi-finals with a score of 2-1.

But if Modric can rouse himself to control another match against England, they have every chance.

"We have to be united, go forward and apply pressure". The logic here was easy to spot: Russian Federation were one of the oldest sides at their own party, and despite their advancing years they had a raft of players with barely top level experience under their belt.

Tiny Beryl is Season's First Hurricane
The system may not degenerate until it reaches the vicinity of Hispaniola and the central Caribbean Sea. On the forecast track, the centre of Beryl will remain east of the Lesser Antilles through Sunday.

Croatia's third place finish in its debut has been equaled only by Portugal in 1966 when the tournament featured just 16 teams.

Russian Federation forward Artyom Dzyuba talked often of "the fairy tale", and the fans responded with a giant banner for the Spain game urging them to "make the fairy tale come true".

However, the team's unexpected run came to an end at the hands of Croatia but not before dragging the game to penalties on Saturday.

There were flashes of brilliance - Ante Rebic leading the way in that department - but Croatia lacked the bite to really hurt the hosts, though the post did deny Perisic and the Balkan nation from taking a second-half lead.

In the streets around Red Square, fans from Peru, Mexico and Argentina were a vibrant presence from days before the World Cup started.

"We tried. I think the whole team gave 100 percent".

TV, radio personality Ed Schultz dies at 64
Fargo ABC affiliate WDAY-TV broke the news Thursday, citing sources who say Schultz died of natural causes. Schultz's political views shifted in 2000, at which point he began identifying as a Democrat.

England coach Gareth Southgate missed a penalty kick in the semifinals of that tournament in 1996 and said he couldn't listen to the song for 20 years. He said Putin and Macron have developed friendly and constructive relations.

"With what we've achieved now, we can't take a step back", Cheryshev said.

Croatia's long periods of possession were largely unproductive, the final pass was invariably missing and they were surprised by Russia's aggressive approach.

"We hope we have turned this situation for the better". It will be a battle again but I believe in us. "Individual awards are not important for me frankly".

"No other team in the world has fans like we do".
