Christian Williams in Southgate Road ready for tonight's semi-final clash
France: "We expect a really tough team in the final, I think they're more hard than England".
"I am Brazilian but I love Croatia since I was 5 years old!" We haven't said our last word, there is still one more game to go. Although that would not be a sacrifice hahahaha, but since I cannot do it, I would offer my house to see Croatia world champion!
The Everton man is battling it out with Hugo Lloris, Thibaut Courtois and Danijel Subasic for the title of the World Cup's top goalkeeper.
With Croatia just one game away from that reality we caught up with the mad Croatian fan from Brazil's capital Brasilia.
Croatia will meet France in Moscow on Sunday after they came from behind to beat England 2-1 in the semi-finals on Wednesday.
However I will say this, you lads will bring it home at some point.
"We were planning to leave, but now we have to stay until Monday", said Sinisa Pavlek, a Croatian living in Germany as he emerged from the stadium with a broad smile on his face. "I'm remarkably proud of the group of players", he added.
"I have been in sport in different areas for long enough to know what my life is day to day".
"We had hoped [for this] and we believed in our team, but the feeling when we finally entered the finals can not be compared to anything", said Croatia fan Ivan Kecerin.
"That enabled Croatia to dominate that midfield area and get their full-backs into play, they were creating 2-v-1s in wide areas".
It meant another World Cup semifinal heartbreaker for England, only this time the game was under control before it was lost. "I made a comment on the Croatian selection page saying that the 4 million inhabitants in Croatia were similar to the 300 of Sparta".
"Modric has had a brilliant season with Real Madrid and here, he's still sprinting about the pitch in the 115th minute", said the coach. In extra time Danny Rose came on for Ashley Young and Eric Dier swapped with Jordan Henderson. "I don't think realistically we expected to be here. The only wish I have is to lift the cup for Croatia". I will really do it!
When you are a player, you can do something to influence what is going on and you don't feel that disgusting tension and those nerves that eat you up when you are sitting in the stands. No-one believed before the World Cup that we could go this far, but we believed.
And his prediction for Sunday?
Crowned with the words "Sir Harry", it is cradled in the sentence: "World Cup Winners 2018".
Bank of Canada hikes rates, shrugging of trade tensions
