Croatian player addresses Ukrainians after knocking Russian Federation out of World Cup

Russia extra motivated thanks to Putin says coach Cherchesov

Starting the penalty shootouts with a miss, Russian Federation could not save their World Cup dreams as Ivan Rakitic scored the deciding kick that saw Croatia through to the semifinal where they will face England.

"The most important thing for me is that my national team succeeded and that we do something big". They were the lowest-ranked team in the tournament, only there because they were the host country, and they won two of their three groups games, and then shocked everyone when they knocked Spain out of the competition to move on to the quarter finals. "We have two matches to play, we are very motivated, we will give our all", Dalic said, adding that the competition is wide open.

After finishing at 2-2 at the end of regulation time, Croatia and Russian Federation headed into the penalty shoot-out to decide the victor which will face England in the semi-final next Wednesday.

Vida's provocation is all the more surreal given that prior to the match, Croatian players including Vida were filmed in front of a large banner upon which were written the words "say no to racism". Nonetheless, with five of England's 11 World Cup goals having come from corners or free-kicks, Gareth Southgate's players should be encouraged.

Actually, breaking the 2018 record established by Croatia's July 1 victory in penalties over Denmark, the Russian loss to the Luka Modric lead team scored a whooping 5.0/13 in metered market ratings.

He continues to make his case as the top player at the tournament. New federation president Luis Rubiales was incensed that previous coach Julen Lopetegui had agreed to take charge at Real Madrid after the World Cup without giving the federation sufficient notice. Argentina and Portugal were both knocked out of Russa 2018 in the Round of 16.

World soccer's governing body has issued a formal warning to a Croatian player over his praise of Ukraine after his team knocked host Russian Federation out of the World Cup.

Croatia defender, Domagoj Vida, is facing possible disciplinary measures for posting a video, dedicating the victory to Ukraine.

It wasn't immediately clear whether Vida and Vukojevic intended the video to be made public, or if it was later uploaded to YouTube by someone else. "Until we have evaluated all information available, we can not comment further".

He told the crowd: "I see a lot of Brazilian flags: Have courage!"

At every World Cup since 1966, the English fans have been in a cycle of hope and despair, as the Three Lions tried to replicate their only world title.
