The Army, however, could not provide VOA with specific details of individuals' security checks due to privacy laws. Zhao says that finding out he was discharged from the United States army was "like falling from Heaven to hell".


Croatia's Marcelo Brozovic gave his team a lead by making his attempt from the penalty spot.

Speaking on RTÉ Television, Hamann said: "They'll be going into the semi-final full of confidence".

However, what stole the show was when Kolinda, the first female president in her country's history, did a little jig in front of a disappointed Medvedev after Croatia struck their second goal to take 2-1 lead in the extra time.

Much of the build-up to the quarter-final match has centred on the iconic 1998 team as the present meets the past. For Russia, Fyodor Smolov and Mario Fernandes were the ones who missed, while Alan Dzagoev, Sergei Ignashevich and Daler Kuziaev scored.

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. "It was a battle. we were lucky, thank God".

"It would have been better if we could have stayed (in the World Cup) to July 15".

Russia President Vladimir Putin was understood to have watched the match with a Kremlin report later saying he was "proud" of the team. We'll have to improve that element of our game.

"It's not the right time to talk about the future", Tite said. They are still great guys for us, they are heroes.

The Baltimore Fire Department said they received a call shortly after noon to say that a tuberculosis sample had been spilled. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain.


England have no such fitness concerns after coasting to a 2-0 quarterfinal win against Sweden in normal time in Samara, but manager Gareth Southgate does have tactical questions to answer before the Croatia clash. If they trusted us or not, we trusted ourselves.
