The video of her celebration in the VIP box in front of a visibly sad Russian PM has gone viral over social media.

Russia's players and coach addressed a crowd of their newfound fans Sunday in Moscow, a day after getting eliminated by Croatia in a shootout.

Next will be England, who reached the World Cup semi-finals for the first time in 28 years with a 2-0 victory over Sweden earlier on Saturday.

"I wouldn't say there are any glaring weaknesses (in England's team) since they are in the semi-finals, that says it all".

However, a bigger issue for coach Zlatko Dalic will be how to get more decisive performances from his top players.

"We have enough time to rest and prepare well", said Modric. "We were together. You were the 12th, 13th, 15th and 16th player", he said and promised that the team would demonstrate better results at the next World Cup in Qatar, although it would be hard without such support.

"Gareth, good luck. Stick to what you're doing, I'm behind you", he added. Every match at this World Cup is like that. "Until last night, when all the pain was removed and when we finally experienced a revival of 1998", the Sportski Novosti newspaper said after that match. "I went to Rakitic for advice and he told me just to pick a side and not change it".
