world cup

Croatia striker, Mario Mandzukic has stated that the Zlatko Dalic’s men will fight until the very last whistle when they face England in the 2018 FIFA World Cup semi-final fixtures on Wednesday night.

Dalic’s side qualified for the last four after beating hosts Russia 4-3 on penalty shootout at the weekend, while the Three Lions defeated Sweden 2-0.

The two teams will battle for the right to play in the World Cup final.

But Mandzukic has opined that even if the Croats lose against the Gareth Southgate’s men, no one will blame them.

“Don’t worry, I still have something in me for England,” Mandzukic told reporters ahead of England clash.

“We will all fight until the end. And in that case, even if we lose, no one could blame us.”

Croatia have never reached a World Cup final, their best finish coming in 1998, when they placed third, having lost to eventual winners-France in the semi-final.
