Argentina's Pitana to referee World Cup final


Against England, they became the first team in World Cup history to win a semifinal without the benefit of spot kicks in a game they initially trailed.

Southgate's men were just 22 minutes from a place in Sunday's World Cup final, before Croatia hit back to equalise then knocked them out in extra-time.

To celebrate the unprecedented win, the entire Croatian cabinet swapped their usual formal dress for football jerseys during their session in the Croatian capital the following day. Prime Minister Theresa May also tweeted out her support to the players and said it had been a "great journey".

Plenkovic was referring to Blazevic, the legendary coach with whom Croatia finished third at the World Cup in France twenty years ago.

"This is either a moment of rare hope and we sink back, or we build in the way that Germany did in 2010", he said.

England fans are the subject of a Federation Internationale de Football Association investigation after claims were made that "possibly discriminatory" chants were sung during the Three Lions' World Cup semi final loss to Croatia.

Earlier the spokeswoman said May had been effusive in her praise for Southgate, who has won plaudits for his leadership, grace under pressure and intelligence.

France's front three is probably around as good as England's based on the way they have played at this tournament and the midfield is better without a doubt.

'I am so proud to work for this team and this manager'.

"Semi-finals, they've done what they had to do, they took us to the semi-finals". Paul Merson gives his prediction and picks his key player. We're gutted, we've worked so hard and the fans were unbelievable.

After defeating Sweden in a 2-0 show of force last weekend, the Three Lions qualified for their first semi-final since 1990, but winning against Croatia tonight would've marked the end of an even longer dry run.

"I was there in France, in the Iceland game, and it was completely different to that", he said. "Am I f**king missing something here?!" one fan tweeted.
