"I can be very happy with my life", Dalic said, adding that "without strong faith and that motivation, it would be very hard to achieve it".
"Players had run out of steam but that's partly their age - they're still physically maturing". We have high motivation to perform and the chance to win a medal at a World Cup, which only one other English team has done, so there's a lot of motivation for us.
While some have pointed out that the two nations will simply be having an unprecedented second completely unwanted game against each other, the England boss maintains that it is important. "To be in a semi-final - you can smell it. Tripps scoring the free kick, you kind of think it's written in the stars for you to go to the final and hopefully do something special", Walker added. "I think he did a spectacular job. The players did that this morning in training", Southgate said.
The two sides must pick themselves up and dust themselves down after suffering the crushing disappointment of semi-final defeats to play for the modest prize of third place in a fixture often criticised as pointless.
"Of course it's going to be a really hard task over the next 24 hours to get everyone mentally back to where we want them for a game like that".
