The world catches the Russian Federation 2018 virus

Croatia captain Luka Modric put in a man of the match performance to lead his side to a penalty shootout victory over hosts Russian Federation, but he has no interest in personal awards as they chase their World Cup dream in a semi-final against England.

Lana Kayed, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy's (SC) Head of Art & Culture, organised the exhibition.

"If anyone's got any tickets out there, we're desperate for the semi-final", said Holder in the van before striking out for Moscow, just over 1,000 km (600 miles) north-west of Samara.

"We wanted to go further, but unfortunately we failed to make it this time", Cherchesov told fans who came to Vorobyovy Gory to greet their football heroes.

Tens of thousands of Russian soccer fans gathered in Moscow on Sunday to cheer the national team after its narrow defeat to Croatia brought an unlikely World Cup run to an emotional end.

It made Alli (22) the second youngest England scorer in a World Cup game, after Michael Owen.

"We have already achieved something big by reaching the semi-finals".

Bouchard, now ranked 188 in the world, will face fellow former Wimbledon junior champion Ashleigh Barty for a spot in the last 32.

As Croatia's winning penalty was scored, there was a stunned silence.

"We know where we are, we know we're not the finished article and I don't think we have loads of world class players".

Whether Russian football will revert to its pre-World Cup domestic issues of racism and fan violence once the tournament is over remains to be seen.

The coach of the 1998 side, Jaroslav Ciro Blazevic, said for a long time he did not want any other team to match his players' achievements.

Dalic said: "That was a great success for Croatia as a nation". It will be a battle again but I believe in us.

After finishing second in their Group to fellow semi finalists Belgium, Gareth Southgate's side has incredibly found itself on the easier side of the draw, avoiding the likes of France, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, while Spain and Germany faced early elimination.

"We have one more step to go in Croatia and we'll treat it as "one game at a time".
