Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic has received praise from all over the world after she personally attended her country's quarter final victory against World Cup hosts Russian Federation.

The 2002 and 2006 tournaments were particularly frustrating because a win in the final group games would have advanced Croatia to the knockout round.

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

"If it wasn't for the World Cup, I think I would have ended (my career) earlier", Ignashevich said in a video posted on social media.

Eleven host cities, namely Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara, were selected to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup.

More than 24,000 fans attended a meeting with the national football team in Moscow to thank the players for their historic World Cup performance, which saw them progress to the quarter-finals for the first time in their history. I'm sure we will prepare well.

Team official and former global Ognjen Vukojevic was expelled from the delegation for making a pro-Ukraine video with defender Domagoj Vida.

Putin may start the summit with a meeting with Trump if Washington confirms that, Peskov told reporters on a conference call. However, he took issue with President Trump's statement that he planned to discuss Crimea with President Putin there.

"We were lucky. I was concentrating throughout the match, but after that penalty, it came bursting out of me".

Southgate added: "I only played for three clubs, I have a real affinity with all three, but England has been the biggest part of my life really".

"That was a great success for Croatia as a nation, and we are on the right track to repeat that feat". Now we've come close and hopefully we can even do it a little bit better than them. "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".

"We wanted to go further but, regrettably, we could not do that".

Midfielder Denis Cheryshev dedicated his four goals - tied for second-most in the tournament behind England forward Harry Kane's six - to "the whole country".

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. "We told him we were disappointed". France have done that and a team that looked disjointed in mid-June looks compact, solid and threatening after the first week of July: of course they have a fulcrum called N'golo Kante holding things together for them, allowing Paul Pogba, Griezmann and company to shine.
