The 33-year-old FC Spartak Moscow player Samedov, and the 38-year-old FC CSKA Moscow defender announced on Saturday their World Cup quarter-final defeat to Croatia was their last appearance with the Russian national team, reports Sputnik news agency.

Russia's players and coach addressed a crowd of their newfound fans Sunday in Moscow, a day after getting eliminated by Croatia in a shootout. A lot of them sang Russian songs in the streets all night, waving Russian flags and sounding the horn.

The victory overwhelmed Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic, who cried after Rakitic's winning penalty.

Croatia's long periods of possession were largely unproductive, the final pass was invariably missing and they were surprised by Russia's aggressive approach. "That's not our style".

England footballing icon Paul Gascoigne has told the current Three Lions crop to "watch each other's back" as they prepare for their World Cup semi final clash with Croatia. "We have succeeded I believe, but it is time to take a step forward". Dalic, however, said there was plenty left in the tank.

"From the start of the second half we played much better, but unfortunately we couldn't finish the game". "We gave everything we could".

IHOB was faking it - it’s back to pancakes for IHOP
The company announced a name change in June , which sparked a flood of social media attention, mostly making fun of the stunt. The restaurant group also updated its website to remove the temporary IHOb logo and replace it with the usual IHOP version.

Meanwhile, Croatia's first World Cup semi-final for two decades has revived the memories of the country's football high point and raised hopes that Luka Modric's side can go one better than their legendary predecessors.

France have a world class goalkeeper, are physically strong, quick on the counter and score goals from everywhere as Benjamin Pavard and Raphael Varane showed against Argentina and Uruguay.

After taking her oath in 2015, Grabar-Kitarovic said she will work on making Croatia - which has a 20 per cent unemployment rate and a six-year recession - 'a rich state'. Brazil has some good chances too but failed to convert them into goals.

In contrast for Russian Federation, who had taken the lead through another Denis Cheryshev wonder goal in the first half, there is only heartbreak as they finally go out. English fans celebrated well into the night given that it is the country's first real shot at the trophy in many decades. Both of these countries have needed luck on their side to get to this point, with England needing penalties to get past Colombia, and Croatia prevailing twice in shootouts - against Denmark and Russian Federation. "But now we are collecting those debts in this World Cup".

The world has its eyes fixed on the big games ahead.

Technically no team plays a more devastating counter attack than Roberto Martniez's side as Japan found out.
