Croatia Defeats England to Advance to First Ever World Cup Final, Williams Reaches 10th Wimbledon Final, Dan Martin Takes Stage Six of Tour de France and Hartford Gets Pro Soccer Team
Croatia will advance to play in the the 2018 FIFA World Cup Final against France following a victory over England 2-1 after extra time yesterday. England opened the scoring with a free-kick from Kieran Trippier, but lost momentum when Croatia's Ivan Perisic tied it up. Mario Mandzukic's extra time goal seal England's fate and gave Croatia their first-ever spot in the FIFA World Cup Finals. FIFA.com quotes Croatia team reporter Vjekoslav Paun:
Croatia keep dreaming! Vatreni showed themselves and the world what they are capable of. They produced their best performance of the tournament right when they needed it most, showing their deep reserves of strength with another victory from a game that went to 120 minutes. Despite a quick England goal just five minutes from the start, Zlatko Dalic's side turned it around. France, are you ready?

"It's crazy. I don't even know how to feel," Williams said after the match. "I literally didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back in 16 months. I just feel like when I don't have anything to lose, I can just play so free. That's kind of what I'm doing."
