The Croatian-national was quietly cheering on her team this morning while keeping an eye on the semifinal between her homeland and England on her computer at work.

Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic said his team faces a "daunting task" to beat France in the World Cup final after their 2-1 victory over England in extra time on Wednesday.

Asked for the reasons behind Croatia's comeback, Dalic said: "Because we were the better team in all segments of the game".

England don't have a Modric - few teams do - but they have to learn how to control games better against top-class teams. And they're just thinking, "we'll get behind these lads". We knew what they were doing and where.

Harry Kane confirmed his reputation as a striker of high quality and John Stones looks to be developing into the class act so many have expected for so long.

"This is fantastic. Two players played with half a leg, but it didn't show".

Dalic didn't make Croatia's first change until the 95th minute, when he replaced Ivan Strinic with Josip Pivaric. "It shows we can be up here".

The Lightning Seeds To Perform Three Lions Before England vs Croatia Match
Goal scorer Umtiti said the win had come on the back of the work of the entire team. "I don't think so". But not everyone from Bournemouth will be rooting for Harry Kane , Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson.

NPR's sports correspondent Tom Goldman says today's match is being played against a political backdrop.

The Duke of Cambridge, who is president of the Football Association, told the Three Lions the whole country is behind them.

While the Reds were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in May, the 29-year-old will be hoping for a different outcome when his nation play France in the World Cup final on Sunday (4pm).

England's World Cup dream may have ended one game short of the final, but the English media are standing by their men. "As an England fan you want to see good football and the team being ruthless in both boxes and they certainly have been that". But I wonder if we are going to get the game we wanted during the group stage of England's stars against Belgium's stars. We're taking it step by step.

As expected, tonight's match proved to be an entertaining one for the neutrals and a stressful experience for English supporters, who have always been claiming that this is the year it finally comes home again.

France doesn't just have the benefit of an extra day's rest. We are facing another daunting task but we are ready for it. Fans have already started arriving at Hyde Park where 30,000 people will watch the match together and big screens are also up and running across London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Leeds, Bristol and Brighton.
