This Is the Most Tender Photo of the World Cup So Far

France and Croatia will fight for the right to be called the World Cup champion.

Cape Town - English soccer legend Alan Shearer has slated the scheduled 2018 World Cup playoff fixture to be played on Saturday between beaten semi-finalists, England and Belgium.

Germany went into their home World Cup 12 years ago on the back of two successive group-stage exits in the 2000 and 2004 European Championships - although they had reached the World Cup final in 2002. "We can't do that now but we want to finish third".

Southgate certainly believes the World Cup campaign has created a foundation.

She added: "They will be talking to teams on the ground and they will be liaising with police services up and down the country". They had hoped to fly it over the South Ayrshire golf resort on Saturday to coincide with the president's visit there.

Trippier, the England goal-scorer, was injured in the second overtime and could only watch from the bench as the clock ran on England's dream of returning to the World Cup final for the first time since 1966. Panama didn't come close to winning a match at this year's tournament, but fans celebrated like they were lifting the trophy after scoring the first World Cup goal in the country's history. Croatia's obvious quality from the second half onwards did not, and could not, soften the blow. "We can be proud and we'll be back". "The dressing room is a very hard place at the moment."Jean Catuffe/Getty ImagesCOMFORTING DANNY ROSE.KIRILL KUDRYAVTSEV/AFP/Getty Images.AND JORDAN PICKFORDFRANCK FIFE/AFP/Getty ImagesTHANKING THE FANS " I'm remarkably proud of a group of players who have really advanced, and no one could have given any more", Southgate said. Wide players Perisic and Ante Rebic were pushed into more advanced roles with Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic feeding them quickly, while full-backs Sime Vrsaljko and Ivan Strinic got forward more too.

The best team won on Wednesday, I don't think anyone can really argue with that. "The only disappointment was that we were 1-0 up, and we should have been more". He knows England's defenders well from the Premier League and will offer a signficant test of pace and strength for a backline that played 120 minutes in the semifinals and has had one day less to rest.

Croats in Bosnia, where they make up 15 percent of the population, also supported the Croatia team, but Bosnian political analyst Zoran Kresic detected something deeper, saying the support "has unified the region and Bosnia for the first time since the bloody wars".
