Russia salutes 'heroes' after Croatia ends World Cup dream

Meeting Putin will be Trump's toughest test

Putin called me during the day and right now. "You know, President Putin is KGB, ' and this and that", Trump told a rally in Great Falls, Montana. Since then he has not attended any more FIFA World Cup Matches but Stanislav Cherchesov says that he continues to be in touch him.

The hosts are underdogs against a Croatia side that beat Nigeria, Argentina and Iceland in the group stages before overcoming Denmark on penalties in the round of 16.

Saturday's match is a huge one for Russian Federation, who have never reached the semi-finals of the World Cup, although the Soviet Union got there in 1966.

"I believe that the keyword is how we leave - it's better to leave when you feel pride", Cherchesov told reporters.

Yet Mr. Trump's advisers concede they can not be certain of what he will choose to say or do.

US President Donald Trump insisted Thursday he will be "prepared" for his upcoming meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, joking about journalists who question his lack of experience. "We don't want anybody tampering with elections", Trump said.

"We can't find an incriminating anything and we need a basis for this investigation", Giuliani said on ABC's This Week . Giuliani told NBC's Meet The Press . "We've been through everything on collusion and obstruction", Giuliani said.

"There was not a single national team playing in this World Cup which had the complete trust of their country". Fans spilling out of bars chanted "Russia" in the street and danced as music blared. "I'm really happy that we made it to the quarters for the first time in history", said Artyom Osadchy, a student.

Reuters quoted student Artyom Osadchy as saying: "It was a great match". The Russian football team's efforts in reaching the quarter-finals despite being the lowest ranked team in the tournament also helped the overall image-building.

Some 15,000 people converged in Zagreb's main square, where the "match of a generation" had been shown on a large screen.

"Russia has fallen! Hug, cry.Croatia is among the four best teams in the world", the commentator on state-run HRT television channel shouted.

The hosts' surprise progress to the quarter-final has ramped up the hopes of home fans but Cherchesov insists - aside from taking calls from the president - he is trying to steer clear of the hype. I believe that is the same for the players, ' he added.

"It was a shame to lose such a player in the first game", he said.
