Croatian president flies economy class to Russian Federation to cheer World Cup team

Russian company mines football-shaped diamond says it’s good omen ahead of Croatia game

It was the second time in the tournament that Croatia needed penalties to win and while Hamann believes that they proved their nerve once again, he questioned their ability to break down England when the two sides met on Wednesday.

Fernandes had been a hero for Russian Federation earlier when his header in the 115th minute equaliser had sent the match to penalties after Domagoj Vida's goal in the 101st had given Croatia a 2-1 lead.

With Croatia advancing to the World Cup semifinals for the first time since 1998, a video clip of the country's president celebrating wildly from the stands has gone viral.

Russian Federation entered the World Cup without having won a match at the tournament since 2002 and with the lowest ranking of the 32 teams, but suddenly the host nation couldn't stop winning.

The 2018 World Cup finals have flown by, and France, Belgium, England and Croatia have a chance of winning it. They are still great guys for us, they are heroes.

"They fought. It was a real playoff match against not the weakest team in the world".

The game finished 1-1 after the 90 minutes, which sent the match into extra time.

Russia's expectations were low heading into the FIFA World Cup, but Cherchesov feels their efforts have won over the public.

"Everything has come together for our team to play in the quarter-finals", said Yegorov, a native of Tver, a city midway between Moscow and St Petersburg.

"We saw how good they are from dead balls so will have to focus more on defending set-pieces because we conceded from a set-piece today, so have to improve that element of our game". We are very motivated and will give our all.

Djokovic, Nadal advance at Wimbledon
And following his win, Nadal expressed that he was happy with his performance but underlined there was still work to be done. World number one Rafael Nadal is through to the second round of Winbledon Open, beating Israel's Dudi Sela 6-3 6-3 6-2.


They have underachieved in recent years despite boasting a side including Modric, Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic and Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic.

"[Putin] watched, he was rooting for the team".

Then Russia left their Croatian counterparts in hot water (well maybe luke warm) as Denis Cheryshev conceded in the 31st minute of the game. I told him we are disappointed.

"Talking about criticism, if they trusted us or not, we trusted ourselves".
