  • Croatia have won both of their knockout matches at the tournament so far on penalties

Paul Pogba insists France are not favourites against Croatia in the World Cup final on Sunday in Moscow. "But from the second half onwards we played much better, and we showed our real standard", said Perišić.

The game turned in overtime on two plays - one on which a defender was alert, the other on which a defender was caught napping.

Jose Mourinho would certainly be pleased with his contributions and be hoping to see more of the same when he returns to Old Trafford.

Gareth Southgate admits the third-place play-off is not a game that any team wants to play in, leaving the England manager facing a challenge to prepare his players in the wake of their World Cup heartache.

The modest nation now has the chance of taking revenge on France after losing 2-1 in Paris when the two nations met in the semi-finals during the 1998 World Cup.

"Obviously, it (the World Cup) is not done yet".

'And they can also celebrate three 30 minutes extra, which for them is three extra times, which is 90 minutes - 90 minutes is one more match'.

"It's fantastic, we're so excited", said Christopher Tomas, owner of the Croatian Corner deli, of Croatia's win. Three games an the U-17 World Cup in 2013 preceded a call-up the following year for the World Cup in Brazil, where Pitana supervised four fixtures, including France v Germany in the quarter-finals.

"Two years ago it was tough", said one of the returnees, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Rockets determined to add Anthony
The Rockets are among the teams that Anthony is reportedly interested in playing for, though money could be an issue. Houston is "determined to sign Carmelo Anthony once he becomes free in OKC", Wojnarowski tweeted Monday.

Croatia's Ivan Perisic tied the score in the 68th minute with his fourth goal of the tournament.

"I'm trying to get the balance right of recognising tonight was a wonderful opportunity for us and you can't guarantee that those opportunities come again", the England boss said. After all, there are some top football players from Croatia.

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.

The French enter the World Cup final 2018 at 5-0-1 and have plenty of confidence following impressive knockout stage wins over Argentina (4-3), Uruguay (2-0) and Belgium (1-0).
