Croatia defender Domagoj Vida apologises for Ukraine comments

Firmino to sit out Liverpool's United States tour

HNS said it had revoked Vukojevic's accreditation at the World Cup and relieved him of his duties as an observer for the Croatia squad. However, Vida and Olic are in their uniform made for the 2018 World Cup.

When Dejan Lovren last played for Liverpool against Harry Kane's Tottenham, he turned in a disastrous performance. "I sincerely hope that this message will not be understood as anything else but an expression of gratitude to our friends in Ukraine for their support", Vida said. "We went through a lot of s**t", he said.

"He's proud of me and what I've achieved", he said.

It was Mandžukić who was the hero of Wednesday's dramatic extra-time win - with his vital winning goal in the 109th minute breaking hearts around England and causing pandemonium on the streets of Zagreb.

Speaking as a pundit for RT, Mourinho said: "England have reason to cry because they were so close, but they have also have reason to be optimistic".

Southgate haunted by heartache of England's World Cup exit
Uruguay are possibly the only country on that list that wouldn't have overachieved by making a semi final this summer. This joy felt by people there from day one, when we departed for Russian Federation , was incredible.

With the curtain about to fall on Russian Federation 2018, and the World Cup packed away to either France or Croatia for the next four years, it's time to get back to what we know and love.

"He was for us in the Champions League final, three years ago he was in the Europa League final". We've had this weight on our shoulders for 20 years.

The journalist asked Vida if he was not confused that Russian fans were whistling in the stands when he was on the field during Croatia's match against England. "I have the opportunity to help him and next time, maybe I will say it".

"I think people should recognise that I am also one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense". I did not see two better centre-halves in the Champions League (final) - only that they were more ruthless. It's going be a tough game, it will be hard, but we have a good chance to give them something back for 20 years ago when they reached the final and we can do it.
