Jose Mourinho insists England have reason to be optimistic despite falling agonisingly short of the World Cup final.

Mia Šetula, a Croatian student at Bournemouth University, admitted she will be cheering for England's opponents tonight.

Croatia fans walk through a crowd of supporters of team England during a gathering in the city centre.

Jeff Peard was cheering for England, and said the atmosphere in Winston's, especially during a big moment for England, made it a good place to watch game.

The aura around England could not be more different to the stale, disunited air that accompanied them away from France two years ago.

When is Roger Federer's next match?
Federer had continued to wear Nike without a deal, but for his opening news conference at Wimbledon , he wore an unbranded jacket. Lajovic had held serve in the opening game but Federer reeled off the next nine games to take charge of the rest of the match.

"I've got a amusing feeling that the momentum is so good, and, you know, especially now that we're all going to turn up with special Gareth waistcoats, and that can only help can't it", said fan Lee Walkup, 50.

Deschamps also suggested in his post-semifinal comments that the French side might have another gear to reach in the final. "I'll go even if England don't make it, the atmosphere will be great".

"I thought that we absolutely played them out the game in the first half".

The BBC says one of the two videos in which Vida appeared was posted online after Croatia beat host Russian Federation for the right to play in the semi-final against England.

"This was Croatia to get to the World Cup final - it's not going to get better than this I don't think". "We're not working much now so you can imagine what it will be like if we win".

Anderson shocks top-ranked Federer at Wimbledon
But Anderson held his nerve to level up and then produced a remarkable surge in form to take Federer deep into the fifth set. He even asked Federer if they could exchange notes on cricket and tennis after the latter won his ninth Wimbledon title.

The game will kick off in Saint Petersburg on Saturday, before Croatia play France in the final in Moscow on Sunday. I don't say it's a miracle because we played well but because only big teams can be so courageous and play a tournament like this with a heart.

"Whether we win or lose, we're creating history", he said.

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. They won their first World Cup penalty shoot-out.

"We're estimating eight to 10,000 - it's really hard to tell because when people take direct routes it's obviously easy to count them but people might come by diverse routes, there are quite a lot of expats here and other fans staying out". "We started slowly today but we showed our character and again came from a goal behind just like we did in the previous knockout rounds".
