Croatia's fans celebrate after the World Cup Quarter Final match Russian Federation vs Croatia, in Zagreb, Croatia, July 7, 018.

"But a team's quality can always improve and we'll try to keep getting better".

Russia Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev called the team's performance "magnificent", saying the tournament would change the face of football in the host nation. Russia's most tourist-friendly city is also easily accessible from Moscow.

Every match at this World Cup is like that...

So England's World Cup adventure rolls on. With players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli, they have the capacity to move on to the final. "You deserve this moment - Football's Coming Home! W".

France, in turn, have to find a way to nullify De Bruyne and Hazard, but the Belgians possess more match-winners.

"They are hard to beat and difficult to score against".

"England fans have been waiting a long time to get this far and they're very excited", he said.

Harry Maguire has become one of the unlikely heroes of England's run to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

Former England worldwide Gary Neville, who was assistant to Roy Hodgson when they were knocked out by Iceland in last-16 at Euro 2016, felt the current pool of players have shown great maturity throughout the tournament in Russian Federation.

In their knockout stage opener, they faced Denmark and it was a nervy contest which ended 1-1 after regular and extra time.

Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subasic made one save in the shootout, blocking Fedor Smolov's attempt.

Sweden's run ended when they were beaten 2-0 by England in the quarterfinals on Saturday, but former captain Ibrahimovic said Janne Andersson's side had enjoyed a memorable tournament.
