Knee Injury Knock Croatian Defender Out of World Cup

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

Martinez, a Spaniard, is two wins away from guiding Belgium to its first title.

Volunteers stand on the sidelines during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup quarter-final match between Sweden and England at the Samara Arena in Samara on July 7, 2018. "It will stay this year, it will stay next year", said All England Club chief executive Richard Lewis. "We were supporting the team so much", one Russian fan told Al Jazeera after the quarter-final.

In a more encouraging sign, this time around, they've also won their first penalty shootout at world football's showpiece tournament. Every match at this World Cup is like that. I've not met many players as driven as Luka, and I've seen even fewer who are as talented as him.

Meticulous preparation - including a trip to the United States to take in an National Basketball Association game - the selection of specific players with strong dead-ball delivery, and the defensive nature of high-pressure tournament soccer has led to a point where set pieces could yet lead England to a second World Cup title.

"Saturday was one of the most special days I can remember at the championships". But we have shown throughout the tournament that all of our players are unsafe.

"People followed the football on their devices thanks to modern technology without disturbing other spectators". Modric is one player England need to stifle if they harbour any dreams of prolonging their stay in Moscow.

Thai cave rescue: All 12 boys and their coach rescued
They spent nine days in darkness until two British divers found them, before a drawn-out rescue that captivated global attention. Football's governing body, FIFA, has invited the boys to the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday.

"I am sure the same again will happen on Wednesday - and hopefully on Sunday". "We made lots of changes to help us be successful and seeing the younger teams win has been hugely rewarding".

England coach Gareth Southgate. "We like to play against teams like this because we have really fast players and it will be a really open game, not like today or the game against Denmark".

In Moscow, the area behind Red Square was the unofficial beating heart of this World Cup.

"We are concentrating on what's going on now". "We don't want to stop", Dalic said.

"We have had events on in camp when some of those guys have been in when the road was named at St George's (Park) after Sir Alf", he said.

"Russia has shown the world what kind of championship we can have - the best in the world", said another fan.
