Soccer's world body said it "strongly rebukes" comments by the Argentina great criticising American referee Mark Geiger's handling of England's win against Colombia in the World Cup round of 16. They're just not good enough to go toe-to-toe with Croatia.
However, if Les Bleus can continue the forward momentum they showed against Argentina, they will take some stopping. Makes you wonder what we'll be talking about after this one.
Russian Federation 2018 has been a captivating tournament with only one goalless draw in the group stage, and a thrilling round of 16 that threw up plenty of shocks.
After losing the defending champions in the group stage, the World Cup waved goodbye to other three pre-tournament favorites in the round of 16. "Naturally we want to win, but we are not expected to and that is an important difference". "It's just an unbelievable feeling, the best feeling of my career".
Way too often a Spanish player would check and move horizontally rather than look to move into space, making it easy for a fearless but limited Russian Federation side to pack their defence and hang on for a penalty shootout which had a feeling of inevitability about it. When you have two world-class players connecting things all over the park, you have a chance to go far.
We know what to expect from the hosts - although their win over Spain on penalties was one of the results of the tournament, they basically played anti-football to get it.

Belgium Beat Japan 3-2 To Reach Quarter-Finals
Belgium scored a last-gasp victor to beat Japan on Monday and set up a World Cup quarter-final against Brazil. Belgium very almost responded instantly, with Eden Hazard rocketing a shot off the post just after the reset.
If I am right, then France will play Brazil in the semi-finals and England will play Croatia, which would not be too shabby a line-up.
"We've also taken the decision to give the staff some much needed time off, after all of the hard work and effort they've put into the games so they can enjoy the forthcoming game at their leisure". They're going to fancy themselves to stymie an England side that might not have the ingenuity to break them down.
"And today I saw a monumental robbery on the pitch".
"FIFA is extremely sorry to read such declarations from a player who has written the history of our game", the world football body says in a statement.
