FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura congratulated Croatia on qualifying for the World Cup final following their 2-1 victory over England on Wednesday.
"Croatia, you were brave enough to fight on the pitch in every game. We're looking forward to seeing you in the World Cup final," Samoura wrote on her Twitter account in Croatian.
She also praised England saying that they played "so well," and that their fans were truly "living football."
Croatia will face France at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday, while England will take on Belgium in St. Petersburg in the third place play-off on Saturday.
