Zlatko Dalic's men face England in the semi-finals in Moscow on Wednesday in what will be Croatia's second last-four clash at the showpiece tournament.

The civic buildings of Leeds Town Hall and Leeds Civic Hall will also be lit up red and white on both Tuesday and Wednesday night in order to cheer on England, alongside proudly flying a St George's flag.

Fernandes, who was born in Brazil but rejected a chance to play for that country's national team in 2011, sent his penalty kick wide of the net in the shootout, giving Croatia the advantage. "Not even in my wildest dreams, and I am a big dreamer, would I have imagined this", he said.

"We had to take advantage a bit more in the counter-attacks, but congratulations to my players and my staff".

Gareth Southgate's stock has risen so much since he travelled to the 2018 World Cup as England manager that some are suggesting a knighthood could be on its way. "We were unlucky at previous tournaments but now we are collecting those debts this year", said Modric after Saturday's win over Russian Federation in Sochi. We have played five games, but being exhausted can not be an alibi.

"In the changing room, Didier Deschamps was happy. Everyone is with us, we're all in this together".

'This acquisition would be a fantastic addition to our holdings and would come at an exciting time for us while we build the London Collection as we plan the New Museum in West Smithfield'. We played a very good match in terms of our organisation.

Insp Phil Grimwade said: "The vast majority of people enjoyed Saturday's celebrations safely and these incidents in the city related to a small minority of people who took things too far".

"I feel very proud for my group".

But Dier insists they can not take any comfort from that experience - because Real went on to win the trophy a n d Modric was the star of the Champions League final.

The win means France have another shot at a title, two years after losing the final of the 2016 European Championships 1-0 to Portugal, in a tournament which was played on home soil.
