Brazil and Belgium out in the quarter-finals

Lionel Messi strolls through Barcelona airport on his own upon arrival

Croatia will come up against a partisan Russian crowd in their last eight-tie in Sochi on Saturday evening.

"We can not choose our opponents, hosts or otherwise", said Dalic. We are facing a huge game in the quarter-finals and it doesn't matter who the opponents are.

"Whatever any player on the other team does will not matter much", added Kompany, who answered questions in four different languages during his half-hour press conference. It shouldn't be a problem.

"We will not be looking for excuses".

Although Luis put in a solid display against Mexico, Tite may be tempted to recall his preferred left back Marcelo, who missed the match with a back injury but returned to training.

But Southgate said he was already looking forward to Saturday's quarter-final against Sweden in Samara, with a last-four clash against either Croatia or Russian Federation up for grabs. He also went on to say that he needs to be involved in a project where the focus is "beyond whether you win one or two games".

"You have to accept that Brazil have finesse and they will break you down but we did not accept it".

Belgium won their only World Cup penalty shootout against Spain in the quarter-finals of the 1986 tournament. When you make the people wait, you best deliver the high-quality goods.

Ferdinand's views were quickly echoed by fellow pundit Alan Shearer, who suggested the Manchester United man was close to the flawless centre-forward performance.

"We are awed by the bravery and strength that these young boys and their coach have shown amidst such frightening circumstances", the Croatian Football Federation said on its website.

World body FIFA told CNN it was in close contact with the Football Association of Thailand, while Croatia's football authority said it was "awed" by the team's calm under pressure. We are on the right track to repeat that feat but it is not going to be easy.

"I've been speaking about it with a few of the boys", the defender said, according to British media. "In Brazil, as you know, we have a saying.'Envy is a bitch'".

"There's no shame in not beating very good teams". They deserve to have reached the quarter-finals.

"The only difference is they will have vociferous fans but every week our team plays with opposing fans howling at them".
