Croatia manager Zlatko Dalic could alternatively opt for experience and move Domagoj Vida to the right side while bringing Vedran Corluka into central defence.

Even their own fans did not expect them to achieve anything. "It is going to be hard and interesting for both teams".

The most unpredictable and entertaining FIFA World Cup in recent memory wraps up this week, with just four matches left to be played.

England are Croatia's opponents in the final four of the tournament as they bid to reach their first final.

Eric Dier heaped praise on Croatia duo Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric, warning that England must contain them if they are to book a first World Cup final spot in 52 years.

Russian Federation were the lowest-ranked team entering the tournament and many in the sceptical media thought they would be lucky to win a game. "We don't want to stop", Dalic said. The big guys were sent home and the working teams stayed.

Dalic has managed to get the best out of his players so far as they cruised through the group stage with three wins out of three games, including a win over Argentina. Goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev said the team had played with all the heart and soul.

Fans who had been dancing in the streets after a heart-pounding shootout win over 2010 champions Spain in the last 16 last Sunday were gloomy but grateful.

Cherchesov, who faced heavy criticism going into the tournament, but has emerged from it as a national hero, gave his thoughts after the defeat to Croatia consigned his team to a heart-breaking exit.

Players too thanked the fans for their support. "We like to play against teams like this because we have really fast players and it will be a really open game, not like today or the game against Denmark".

The largest fan zone is in Zagreb's main square, where thousands are expected to watch the game on a giant screen.

He kickstarted England's momentum in their opener against Tunisia, first opening the scoring before heading in a dramatic stoppage-time victor once it had been cancelled out. "Only Russian people have such a soul that has no equals in the whole world".

"They have been playing at an extremely high level for their clubs".
