Paul Pogba: France must make amends for Euro 2016 final defeat

Things are looking up Roger Federer on his way to victory over Adrian Mannarino

We savour [the win] a little, but we must now focus on the final. It's always there every time we wear the shirt of our national team, we want to play with pride, we want to play well and win.

"It's me that scored", Umtiti said, "but we all delivered a big game". "You're disappointed because you lose the semi-final, and it's very hard to see the opportunity of playing another game as a positive", he said.

Former England manager, Sven-Goran Eriksson, has provided reasons the Three Lions crashed out the World Cup on Wednesday. I don't know of a smaller country in a World Cup final. Croatia had prevailed on penalties in both the last 16 and the quarter-finals, defeating Denmark and then tournament hosts Russian Federation.

France will wait and see who they will be facing at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday as England and Croatia face-off in the other semi-final match in Moscow this evening. Before the tournament started, there were doubts over us.

Many Twitter fans echoed Pogba's sentiments and praised the midfielder for taking a moment to think of the rescued boys.

The two sides must pick themselves up and dust themselves down after suffering the crushing disappointment of semi-final defeats to play for the modest prize of third place in a fixture often criticised as pointless.

Croatia's exhausted and battered players set their sights on the World Cup final against France on Thursday as England reflected on a missed opportunity to end more than half a century of pain.

"But equally we want to be a team that are hitting quarter-finals, semi-finals, finals - that is what we have aimed to do in the long term".

"For us, we are not the favourites".

Now, Belgium and England will meet again in another match that neither team will likely care much about winning.

"The Croats had a very hard match and they were behind". After all, there are some top football players from Croatia.

"The ability of the team and the style of play we've evolved enormously in a short period of time". "They just kept coming towards me and they fell on me!" "Even their defenders are outstanding players".
