"For me, we are not favourites".

Perisic received treatment in a Moscow hospital on Thursday less than 24 hours after playing a key part in Croatia's semi-final win over England.

"I am not writing off Croatia, but I fancy France in this final", Keane told ITV Sport.

"I don't want to prove nothing to nobody", he said. But France started the knockout rounds with a thrilling 4-3 win over Argentina and continued its impressive offensive output with a 2-0 win against Uruguay in the quarterfinal. "That will not happen again".

France can rightly argue it has reached the final through the most hard half of the draw, having to overcome Argentina, Uruguay, and Belgium. Croatia needed spot kicks to advance against Denmark in the last 16 and against Russian Federation in the quarter-finals.

Croatia came from behind to beat England 2-1 in extra time when Mario Mandzukic netted a classic goal on 109th minute.

Croatia will face the French team, led by French manager, Didier Deschamps, who was the national team captain when France won the World Cup at home in 1998.

'We are all happy to be staying in Moscow, that was our goal. The frustration is there because we didn't lose to a team who are better than us, we lost to a team who play nothing, just defend. "We are chasing something and will do everything to succeed".

England qualified for the World Cup semi-final for the first time since 1990 and no one expected them to do the same with the team they had. It is unknown territory for Croatia however. That's because they would have clashed, one way or another, with the uniforms of the five opponents Croatia has played since. They want to win.

'I do not have a star.

"The Croats are not just Modric".

But World Cups are special events, with a possible seven games in a month compressing development in a short space of time, and Pogba has grown as France has progressed. "The plan is to win the match".

Pogba is apparently anxious that a return to the Premier League this coming season, to again play under Mourinho, would see a downturn in the form he has shown at the World Cup. This shows character and is what makes me proud.
