The two youngest teams in the World Cup, destined to meet in the final after a parade of greater soccer nations with veteran stars had gone home.
Vukojevic, a former Croatia global, published the video on social media after the match on Saturday in a move which was criticised by Russian politicians.
"We've got to keep getting over those hurdles and I know we talked about the success of the younger teams but this is a much harder, much bigger level for the players and the belief is building as things are happening".
However, the biggest concern looking ahead to Sunday's game is bound to be fatigue, with Croatia having also required extra time and penalties to come through ties against Denmark and hosts Russian Federation in the past two weeks.
Prime Minister Theresa May said: "Gareth Southgate and the boys have done a fantastic job and I'm sure that they're going to go on to do well and I wish them all the very best of luck tonight".
But a place in the World Cup final against France was not to be. "That in future we talk about them", said Blazevic, now 83, and known in Croatia as the "coach of all coaches".
Over the years, other relatively small nations to have punched above their weight by reaching the final include Sweden, Hungary and the Netherlands - all of whom fell at the final hurdle.
Penticton's new British pub, Brexit, was a full house with footy fans for Wednesday's World Cup semi-final between England and Croatia. "But we have our hearts, our pride and our players and that is what is really important to us".
"I get a lot of vibes from England with the chants and all that stuff". "I think he's given everything for the team and there was a period of the game in the second half where we didn't have that controlled possession".
During the day England fans were planning the best and least expensive way to get hold of a ticket for the final.
"We hope everyone enjoys the match and it goes without saying we hope England win".
"We believe in our strengths", he said, as reported by BBC Sport.
Vrsaljko, who plays for Atletico Madrid, had struggled to be ready for the match after playing in two previous extra-time matches, but he found the strength to lift his exhausted, battered team to a comeback win.
"But now, I pray and I would give anything in the world that this squad eventually "confines us to history".
"They're already heroes, its just about whether they turn into legends", said 32-year-old Dan Woodbury as he waited for the 1800 GMT kick-off in The George pub at London Bridge.

Wade Ormsby and Adam Bland were Australia's best, both finishing 15 shots behind the victor for a tie of 49th. It was his second tour title. "That's why you play golf, to hole a putt like that on the last hole".
