Jose Mourinho insists England have reason to be optimistic despite falling agonisingly short of the World Cup final.

England's unexpected journey in Russian Federation came to an end in the semi-finals as Mario Mandzukic sealed a 2-1 victory in extra-time to break English hearts in Moscow.

"Perisic is the kind of winger that is different to the others", the Portuguese tactician told Russia Today.

The Inter Milan star was heavily linked with a switch to United last summer before Mourinho turned his interest elsewhere. "Normally you judge wide players on their pace and creativity, but he's physical too - exceptionally physical - and in the air he's fantastic".

"So for them to go back to their country and take a nation like Croatia to the World Cup final is something awesome".

Perisic has scored twice and set up one goal in six appearances at the World Cup in Russian Federation so far, and is expected to play against France in the final on Sunday.
