That is a great source of pride for us.

The charismatic 49-year-old - who is in Russian Federation as a TV pundit for English broadcaster ITV - told The Daily Mail Modric and fellow superstar Ivan Rakitic will pose problems for England in their World Cup semi-final on Wednesday they have not had to encounter thus far.

In 1998, Croatia, which had emerged from a bitter independence war only three years earlier, made its debut at a World Cup finals.

Deschamps may have bitter memories from that Euro final in front of a home crowd, but he is now on the verge of joining an elite club of coaches who have also won the World Cup as players.

"We want Gareth and the players to know that the city of Leeds is right behind them when they take on Croatia in the semi-final on Wednesday".

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

They're all likely to stay the hospital for seven days due to their weakened immune systems, Chokedamrongsook said. For the first four rescues on Sunday , two divers accompanied each boy, one from the side and one from behind.

Modric will feature in a midfield that consists of the likes of Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic, while Mario Mandzukic, Ivan Perisic, Mateo Kovacic and Dejan Lovren are just some of the names in a Croatian team expected to be England's toughest test yet.

"We feel much easier at this point and we are enjoying what is happening. We have a privilege to get to the final", he said, before saying he was "here to write a new page in history".

The coolness displayed by the Real Madrid playmaker in the last-16 tie against the Danes was particularly impressive - having missed a penalty late in extra time, he still stepped up to score another spot-kick only a few minutes later.

And nearly as quick as beer went flying in bars across the country, Matt was bombarded with tweets calling on him to fulfil his promise - which, of course, he did.

"But now, I pray and I would give anything in the world that this squad eventually "confines us to history". After winning Group D, Croatia beat Denmark and Russian Federation in penalty kicks to get to this point, while England knocked out Colombia in the round of 16 in penalties before taking down Sweden in the quarterfinals.

"Hopefully we will go a step further than in 1998".
