Dalic quoted as saying after that the game that "He congratulated France on their title and added they played well in the first 20 minutes, we controlled the game, then there was an own goal from a set play. They came back to life, dominated and then the penalty was given”.

to congratulate his players, it was maybe the best game we played in these
championships and they controlled the match but they conceded". Further Croatia's
