Sterling, who has been widely criticised on social media by England fans, played a key role as Gareth Southgate's men overcame Sweden 2-0 in Samara to set up a semi-final against Croatia. "I love Russians, I love Ukrainians, I love Brazilians, I love everyone". Vida had nearly sealed it for Croatia with his 101st-minute header, but the Russia's hopes were kept alive by Brazilian Fernandes, who unleashed a wonderful header off Alan Dzagoev's free-kick minutes before start of the shoot-out, making it 2-2.

Croatia, for whom Andrej Kramaric and Domagoj Vida had earlier found the net, advance to their first World Cup semi-final since 1998.

Therefore when Croatian footballer Domagoj Vida chanted "Slava Ukrayini" after a match with the Russian national team on Russian soil, many were upset with the fact that Vida made a decision to politicise what is meant to be an apolitical sporting event.

Russian Federation has been basking in the spotlight this World Cup, playing to the roaring crowds at home and winning games.

"The lack of political implication and any offensive significance is also confirmed by a long-term friendly relationship between Croatian Football Federation and Russian Football Federation, that will continue to be nurtured in the future".

Spartak Moscow winger Alexander Samedov also confirmed he is retiring from global football after Russia's defeat.
