Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic said his side's appearance in the World Cup final should provide inspiration to other small national teams striving for worldwide football success.

Simonyan did not dare to make a prediction.

Starting with only about 70 people during Croatia's first match, Stefanec said the house was packed for the final game.

"Frankly, I have this feeling there will be hundreds of millions rooting for us".

Croatian state TV match commentator Drago Cosic said "Croatia can be proud, we should applaud our boys". This is life. I think that overall Croatia played a great tournament.

Macron was captured giving a speech to the victorious players during which he said: "I told you and the coach to bring back the second star". "Now", he said, "leave the Cup to us!" It's just a lot of smiling faces and a lot of crying. I'll take a breather, I never take decisions overnight.

"To beat an Argentina team with Lionel Messi, a Uruguay side with Luis Suarez, with Diego Godin that also does the awful stuff, to beat a Belgium side with Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku. they've come through everything".

Trybus, who according to the police report was drunk at the time, was charged with assault and disorderly conduct. The officer can then be seen talking to the man who gesticulates back and tells him to "shut the f*** up".

Croatia have gone to extra-time in all three of their knockout matches, triumphing on penalties against Denmark and hosts Russian Federation before edging past England 2-1 in the semi-final. What does Didier Deschamps say to Paul Pogba that Jose Mourinho doesn't?

Croatia will on Monday stage a welcoming party for the soccer team in Zagreb. They were the best team in the competition.

"They are a little insane, they have always been a little mad", he said with the broadest of smiles.

There were bacon and eggs on offer but Vicelich said he wouldn't be eating until after the final whistle.

With the nation glued to screens to watch their team's progress through the tournament, sales of television sets went up 400 percent compared to previous year. "In football anything can happen", he said.

Others continued waving Croatian flags and scarves through the disappointment after watching their country play in the World Cup final for the first time.
