Croatia boss Zlatko Dalic insists that his team "are ready" for Sunday's 2018 World Cup final against France.

Croatia boss Zlatko Dalic has insisted that his team "are ready" for Sunday's 2018 World Cup final against France.

The Blazers booked their spot in the final of this summer's competition courtesy of a 2-1 win over England in the second semi-final on Wednesday night.

Dalic has said that he has "huge respect for France", but the 51-year-old is confident that his team can triumph.

"There is no weakness in a team which is in the final. They are a top-drawer team with fantastic players," Dalic told reporters.

"But we are going to discuss France tomorrow. We're taking it step by step. We've entered the final today. We're going to celebrate, to rest and then we will prepare for France.

"We're facing another daunting task but it's going to be a fantastic match. We are ready for it. I am sure everybody will enjoy watching that match. I have huge respect for France."

France booked their spot in Sunday's showpiece event courtesy of a 1-0 win over Belgium on Tuesday night.
