‘Maybe England lacked respect’, says Croatia coach

The previous highest audience during this World Cup was 23.6 million for the climax of England's penalty shootout win over Colombia in the last 16.

England will now play against Belgium in the third-place match.

Southgate says his selection will be based primarily on the fitness of individual players suggesting he will resist the temptation to give some fringe players a run-out.

On average, every player from the four remaining teams has been tested four times since January, with some tested up to eight times.

"We've set a level of working and performing that we want to maintain and take pride in". Everyone trained this morning. "There's a culture that exists now that when we come together, we expect every new player to follow".

"(There are) one or two injuries, one or two with a bit of illness.

To try to finish third in the World Cup doesn't happen often.

Regardless of the result, England have already had a far more successful tournament than anyone saw coming and managed to unite the country behind the team for, arguably, the first time in decades.

Croatia got a ticket to the final match of the World Cup after defeating England 2-1 in a game that went to overtime July 11.

"In terms of mentality, it's obviously been a really hard couple of days for us".

"I actually got the opportunity to go home for a few days, so I experienced what it was like back there", the midfielder said.

He said: "Emotionally it has been a hard few days but the players are incredible".

"But we've learned from all of the things over the last couple of years and that's a cruel lesson, but, blimey, we've come through so many important ones and I'm really, really very proud of what they've done".

England will aim to achieve their best finish since they won the competition in 1966.

"I can be very happy with my life", Dalic said, adding that "without strong faith and that motivation, it would be very hard to achieve it".

"Outside that I'm not interested in individual awards".

"I would definitely leave my football boots behind on Monday if that was the price I had to pay to win for my country, to win for Croatia", said Rakitic, according to Telegraph Sport.

Croatia have been forced into extra time in each of their three knockout matches, edging Denmark and hosts Russian Federation on post-match penalties.

Trippier was among those training today.
