Bilic: I've never been so proud

I don't want to talk about the referee. I think he could not have missed the fouls on Corluka and Mandzukic, but Spain are world champions and they shouldn't need help from the referee.

...I have phenomenal players with great character. I came in as a young coach without any experience, now we have a great team and we can be proud of our work together. I've never been as proud as I am now.

– Croatia coach Slaven Bilic
