Russia players celebrate

Southgate has used the stories of that triumph as inspiration, and believes the current team can become even bigger heroes. "Let's not be happy with what we have achieved and go ahead".

It is only the second time that Croatia have reached the World Cup semi-finals.

After a dramatic win on penalties against Russia, Croatia will play England on Wednesday night (AEST) in front of 80,000 people in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium for a place in the World Cup final.

Croatia and England are joined in the last four by France and Belgium after a World Cup at which several heavyweights, namely Germany, Brazil and Spain, were eliminated earlier than expected.

Their quarter-final exit on penalties to Croatia, among the most skilled teams here, on Saturday was further proof that Russian Federation never meant to just playing along.

Croatia's Mario Mandzukic, left, dropped more than $A5,000 on the bar tab.

Gazza was of course one of the star players the last time England played in an World Cup semi-final back in 1990.


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

"We came to support our team as we do not think they lost", said Kristina Ladygina, waiting at the Federation Internationale de Football Association "fan fest" zone for the players to appear.

"I'm not thinking about it, only about my national team succeeding", he said.

"I think they have a good mentality in the team, team spirit which is very important for a tournament".

"But we've been a real team and we have got some excellent players, no doubt about that, but the collective strength has been massive". Vida told Croatian media after the match said via Goal.

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

The majority of Russian fans believe that their team can emerge victorious from the confrontation with the Croats. "We expect a very hard, tight and demanding match".
