Four things we learned from FIFA World Cup quarters

France's Kylian Mbappe has started to fire at the World Cup

The 2018 FIFA World Cup Croatia vs England Semi-final will be played at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia.

They return to action on Wednesday when they meet England in Moscow for a place in the final on July 15.

"In four years' time in Qatar we will be better", Cherchesov added, referring to the next World Cup tournament.

Croatia's 3-0 win over Argentina in the group stage was a clear signal that the team led by midfield maestro Luka Modric was a real threat with their clever passing and movement. France and Belgium will contest the other last-four tie in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday.

Zlatko Dalic's men thought they had won the game when centre-back Domagoj Vida put them in front in extra time, only for Russia's Mario Fernandes to head home and snatch a thrilling 2-2 draw.

Liverpool's Dejan Lovren stood atop a table as the Croatia squad congregated in unison to show their delight at reaching a World Cup semi-final.

He also overcame missing a penalty in extra-time against Denmark, stepping up bravely minutes later to convert in a shoot-out. They are in the better half of the draw and we have a proper team, full of quality, full of experience.

Beckett posted several messages expressing his dismay about England's defeat, saying he was so upset he could barely speak, felt sick and was going to eat his chair.

"It was a very hard game, we all know what was at stake and how important a semi-final is for a small country like Croatia", said Perisic.

We have lots of good young players who are showing on a world stage they're prepared to be fearless with the ball. "We saw how good they are from dead balls so we will have to focus more on defending set pieces".

But Dier insists they can not take any comfort from that experience - because Real went on to win the trophy a n d Modric was the star of the Champions League final. "It will be a battle again but I trust us, I have belief in us". They are two great players, everyone knows that.

Croatia struggled to find rhythm in their penalty shootout knockout game victories against Denmark and Russian Federation with boss Zlatko Dalic claiming the defensive style of their opponents stifled their creativity. "We've taken it game by game and will continue to do that", the 28-year-old Liverpool captain said. "Thank you for your support, I'm happy to see so many people here".
