The opening 15-minute stretch of the overtime ended with the draw of 1-1 as well, but it was Croatia to up the score to 2-1 in the next 15-minute period of the overtime after forward Mario Mandzukic netted the ball.

Ivan Perisic said his equalizer that helped Croatia come from behind to beat England 2-1 after extra time and reach the World Cup final was a goal that "he could only dream of" as a child.

"This is a miracle".

"Health has to be number one, but to play for the Croatian team, to play in the World Cup semi-final, I do not need to even say that I will be giving it 300% to be fit".

Umtiti played his part in a strong defensive effort by the French, too, helping to shut out the highest-scoring team at the tournament and leaving Belgium's golden generation of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku to regret another missed opportunity at a major tournament.

"Finals have to be won because we have still not got over the one we lost two years ago", said Deschamps.

The French national football team defeated Belgium 1-0 in the semifinal match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, played on Tuesday night in Russia's Saint Petersburg, to become the first team to vie for the much-coveted FIFA World Cup Trophy this year.

"We are deservedly in the final", he said.

Dalic praised the attitude of his players against England, some of whom endured 120 minutes with "half a leg".

He said: "I don't read what is going on in England, I am reading about my own country after each game".

"This is the first time in my life England have made it anywhere near this far", said 23-year-old Murad Huseynov, draped in a red and white St George's flag.

"Atmosphere is so important for us - we're basically a comedy gig", said Stacey Norris, the producer, director, and occasionally drunk cast member. "We worked so hard, the fans were unbelievable, it was a tough game, a 50-50 game, when we look back we will think there's stuff we could have done better".

He added in French: "My thoughts are with the boys in Thailand".

With such a modest population, they are the smallest country to get to a World Cup final since Uruguay back in 1950, and in the modern game it is a staggering achievement. There's a lot we could have done better.
