Croatia, whose previous best result was the third place at the 1998 World Cup held in France, beat England 2-1 on Wednesday and advanced to the final for the first time in their history.

"I hope that all four millions of people [in Croatia] will go out to celebrate our victory, if it happens," Dalic said.

"I think, we can leave behind Brazil and Argentina in terms of celebrating."

Croatia will take on France in World Cup final at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday at 18:00 local time (15:00 GMT).
