Russian Federation players find solace in thousands of World Cup fans

Russia players celebrate

Their opponents have had two energy-sapping 120-minute games, after needing penalties to overcome Denmark in the last-16 and then Russian Federation in their quarter-final in Sochi on Saturday night.

"I think Raheem Sterling is an important player because he is fast and risky alongside Harry Kane", Dalic said in a press conference Sunday.

'Hopefully we will go a step further than in 1998. In the comments under every selfie fans admired the heroism of the Russians and thanked the team for their holiday, which they brought to the country. It shouldn't be a problem.

"We're excited for Wednesday now - looking forward to it and we're trying to prepare as much as we can". We have two matches to play and we are very motivated.

While Putin sat out the Russia-Croatia quarter-final, his Croatian counterpart, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, was in the stadium, wearing the red and white of the Croatian flag.

When Croatia stormed through the group stage with nine points from three games, they did in indeed look like serious contenders.

If that's going to change, Russian soccer may need reform - perhaps more players signed to foreign clubs like Cheryshev, sharing knowledge and experience from overseas.

The big numbers of Latin American fans who came to Russian Federation are making 2022 World Cup organizers rethink their own plans for Qatar. "Then I went to our assistant coach Drazen Ladic and he told me to think of something nice". But for the last four weeks the country has bent over backwards to be as welcoming and accommodating to the thousands of foreign visitors attending games. "We did not want to risk some passes that would tip the balance in our favour".

Croatia had also needed spot-kicks to get past a dogged Denmark in the last 16, but Modric insisted they would not be exhausted for the last-four clash against England at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Wednesday.

Twenty years ago, Croatia made its World Cup debut with a result that happened only once previously in the tournament's history and has never been topped.

"I hope we can outdo them".

Croatia captain Luka Modric (L) jogs with team-mates during a training session at the team's base camp in Luzhniki on Tuesday. "We have been briefed in detail about them and how they play, and I know them personally".

Back in England, the national team - vilified after the debacle at Euro 2016 - is once more a source of pride.

Russians from all walks of life had been swept up by the progress of their national team, which reached the quarter final despite starting out as the lowest-ranked team in the tournament. "Seeing the people and how they move, trying to imagine how the traffic flow will be like in Qatar, we're re-considering where we put our Fan Fest".
