Should British royals and officials witness World Cup history despite Russian boycott?

Russia extra motivated thanks to Putin says coach Cherchesov

Croatia captain Luka Modric said his side showed character on Saturday to get through "another drama" after edging to a second straight shootout win to knock out Russian Federation and set up a World Cup semi-final with England.

Croatia then went ahead with a soft Domagoj Vida header in the eleventh minute of extra time but Russian Federation still managed to bounce back through Fernandes. But he saved fantastically the first shot in the shootout.

"Modric is bestselling, although (Danijel) Subasic is becoming increasingly popular", Ana Maric, 20, selling souvenirs in downtown Zagreb, told AFP.

And will goalkeeper Danijel Subasic, the shoot-out hero against Denmark and Russian Federation, be fully fit after appearing to injure his hamstring late in the game against Russian Federation?

"I remember in Moehlin in Switzerland, my home town, we were all insane, we rooted, we wanted to show our Swiss neighbours how powerful a football nation we are", Rakitic, who had dual citizenship but opted to play for Croatia, recalled. "But thank God we've shown our character". In the shootout he appeared limited in movement.

How they got there Croatia after winning Group D with a 100 per cent record have had to grit their way through the knockout stages with penalty shoot-out wins over Denmark and hosts Russian Federation.

Tearful Park claims Women's PGA Championship in playoff
She was already off the course when Ryu made a 30-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole to go two strokes up at 12 under. But that lead disappeared on the very next hole, the par-3 17th, where Ryu found water off the tee.

"As soon as I found out there was going to be a reception with the Sbornaya, I dropped everything and drove with my husband to Moscow", said Anastasiya, a fan from Tver who travelled for over three hours to reach the capital.

His hand was forced when Sime Vrsaljko went down with a knee injury early in extra time and Dalic was forced to use his final substitution to replace the defender. "And he who does, wins". Ultimately, the players responsible for the anti-Serbian provocation were finned rather than banned in the following match.

Croatia play England on Wednesday in Moscow, the winners taking on either Belgium or France.

President Vladimir Putin is said to be "proud" of the team's efforts.

"[Putin] watched, he was rooting for the team". "We didn't play well in the first half, we didn't control the game as we wanted". They are still great guys for us, they are heroes. Les Bleus are led by Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba, and 19-year-old phenom Kylian Mbappe, who is now the favorite to take home the Golden Ball (best player at the tournament) and the Young Player Award, won by Pogba at the 2014 World Cup.
