"We followed the game over dinner", Grabar-Kitarovic said as she entered the last sessions of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit early Thursday, AP reported. It's an fantastic achievement for us, it's a dream come true after such a long time.

"I would say one of the best [moments in my career], if not the best. I told him we were disappointed".

It promises to be a tight encounter against the Three Lions, but Suker insists Croatia is continuing to build for a bright future regardless of how they fare.

He continued: "I always felt this was our first real big test against a very decent team, but a team that I certainly did think was going to tire because of the extra time they played in other games".

Russian Federation is hosting this year's cup for the first time, and enjoyed "home court advantage" no doubt, as it secured a place in the quarterfinals for the first time ever, after a victory over Spain.

Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic is excited to see playing at his best for the Vatreni in his last appearance at the FIFA World Cup.

Ostapenko also reached the quarterfinals a year ago in her best Wimbledon showing, losing to eventual runner-up Venus Williams. She controlled the game and finished the first set clinching 8 winners to 6 and committing 6 unforced errors to Serena's two.

The legend believes that Croatia is building on something new and a great team for the future. The hosts were oh-so-close to securing a spot in the semifinal match in Moscow, where the final also will take place.

"We have to play as if this were the first game in this tournament".

"Only football can make all Croatians go out to the streets".

"We've been one of the youngest teams in the tournament, the least experienced, (and) we were never quite sure how far this team could go", the coach said, adding that all his players will be available for Wednesday's match.

Croatia midfielder Luka Modric has said that his side will be wary of England's set-piece threat when the sides meet on Wednesday evening. But have we been too quick to dismiss Luka Modric and co? - they wonder at Sky News, bringing six things you need to know about Croatia.
