KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Croatia were the second team to book their place in Sunday's final in Moscow after beating England 2-1 in extra-time last night.

Roberto Martinez's Belgium, who were beaten 0-1 by France in the last-four stage, topped Group G ahead of England after an Adnan Januzaj goal proved to be decisive.

That game saw both coaches heavily rotate their teams, and a similar scenario is likely in Saint Petersburg, with several fringe players pushing for a start.

"We were 20 minutes from a World Cup final...that is going to live with me forever, there is not doubt about that", he said.

63 - distance in kilometres covered by Luka Modric during Croatia's six games leading to the final, the most of any player.

"I feel extremely excited, I don't know how I will wait until Sunday", said Grabar-Kitarovic, who is going to attend the game.

England play Belgium in the third place play-off of the 2018 World Cup at 3pm BST on Saturday, 14 July.

"We need to regroup and recover and see the opportunity".




After a World Cup campaign which exceeded the expectations placed by many on his team, Southgate has now urged his players to make the most of their experiences in Russian Federation and aim to go better next time. That was just extra motivation for us. "It won't be the same XI but we want to make as few changes as possible".

"You'll always analyze every decision you make", Southgate said.

"Congratulations to the England team for getting so far in the World Cup", Scudamore said, calling it "a great achievement".

"The downside was it took them another eight years to win (the World Cup)".

"It's a young team; the majority of the players will play in the next World Cup with more experience at club level", the Portuguese boss told RT. "It's about creating an environment to be best we can be, a professional culture".

"He sat out against Belgium earlier on in the tournament to help the team and it will be even more powerful for him winning the Golden Boot after making that sacrifice".

"They didn't want to hide anything from us, and that is why that sanction was chosen".

It was with Al-Ain that he first appeared in a major global final, in the 2016 AFC Champions League, where they lost to Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors of South Korea. "It's very hard to put that into context and a bit too soon really, because I think you have to suffer the result a little bit".
