Only a pair of games remain at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, after this we'll have to wait another four years for World Cup action.

The odds are already out for the 2018 World Cup final of France vs. Croatia on Sunday, but don't forget that there is also a game on Saturday.

We can be proud and we'll be back.

Mandzukic's goal in Moscow's Luzhniki stadium on Wednesday sealed Croatia's spot in the final, surprising even some fans with the result, while dashing England fans' once improbable dreams of a first World Cup final in more than 50 years.

Steen Kirby: This is Croatia's best ever team, while France is back in their first final since 2006 and hoping to do one better than that storied team accomplished.

It's been a thrilling tournament in Russian Federation but one pundit has known for some time that England would lose to Croatia in the last four.

REUTERSCroatia disqualified from the World Cup? "It's not a waste of time; it's a game we want to play". "This has been the discussion for the last 20 years", said Dalic, who was appointed only last October towards the end of their qualifying campaign and led them to a play-off win against Greece.

"This was our problem for 10 years, we had great individuals but no unity and that's why I had to build that unity of objective in the team". We're gutted, we've worked so hard and the fans were awesome.

"I was in Nice to watch us lose too Iceland, I was in Kiev to lose against Italy".

"When you get to this stage of the competition, the margins are fine. they've taken two of their (chances) and we weren't able to respond".

Pitana returned to Brazil in 2016 for the Olympic Football Tournament, where he was the man in the middle for the semi-final between Germany and Nigeria. "I don't think realistically we expected to be here". 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.
