  • World Cup semi-finals

France are determined not to make the same mistakes they did two years ago in losing the Euro 2016 final when they take on Croatia for the biggest prize in football, midfielder Paul Pogba said on Thursday.

"The only thing that stands in our way of achieving the World Cup is France, again" said Ivan Skoko, 25, who was born in Canada but lived in Croatia in 2014.

Pre-tournament preparation was spot on: "We chose to play friendlies against teams who would be at the World Cup and that was a great lesson for us". They are solid. "I don't think that tiredness will play a part as you overcome it when you play in a final". "Those friendlies were a huge help so that now here we are about to play the final".

Dalic's men saw off England in extra-time at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, when they bounced back from Kieran Trippier's fifth-minute opener to eventually triumph 2-1.

The national team was forced to play a European Championship qualifier against Italy in an empty stadium in Split in June 2015 because Croat fans had thrown flares on the field during a match against the Azzurri at Milan. "Croatia are really strong mentally".

"Dream, Dream, Dream! Croatia are in the World Cup final", said the Sportske Novosti newspaper, adding that coach Zlatko Dalic "has entered into legend" after bettering the achievement of the 1998 team. We were so close to what was unimaginable at the start. "But we will try to play with as much pride as we can and finish on a high. We are chasing something and will do everything to succeed". Due to how the bracket was shaping up, it appeared as though neither team would want to win the match, as whichever team wound up winning the group would be placed into the "side of death" that was forming. "Another one picked up my lens and another player gave me a kiss". "The Croats are not just Modric".

Tesla is among companies hit by additional 25 percent import duties imposed by Beijing in retaliation for a tariff hike by U.S. BMW also announced plans to increase production in China, but it said that was because of increased demand for vehicles there.

Dalic didn't make Croatia's first change until the 95th minute, when he replaced Ivan Strinic with Josip Pivaric.

"But for these players, many have come of age on an worldwide stage and I couldn't be prouder with what they've done". While neither team wanted to win their first match, the freedom from pressure and outcome that the third-place match provides should make for some exciting, if inconsequential football.
