They booked their place in the final by seeing off England 2-1 after extra time, making light of the fact that the Three Lions hail from a land with a population of around 53 million.

Gareth Southgate's emerging side were 45 minutes away from England's most significant game in 52 years as the voices of their supporters rose in an expectant roar inside the vast Luzhniki Stadium.

While the Reds were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in May, the 29-year-old will be hoping for a different outcome when his nation play France in the World Cup final on Sunday (4pm).

Croatia looked vulnerable from set-pieces against Russian Federation, conceding the equaliser in extra-time via a set-play, so this is an area England can exploit.

In the stadium that can still echo to the memories of the legendary middle distance battles between Steve Ovett and Sebastian Coe at Moscow's 1980 Olympics, England stumbled with the finishing tape in sight. "Only great teams can be as courageous as we were and fight back from a goal down against teams like England", Mandzukic said.

Southgate is keen to remind people that England's squad was the least experienced in Russian Federation.

MOSCOW, July 12 ― England's World Cup semi-final defeat to Croatia will hurt for a long time, striker Harry Kane said after their 2-1 extra-time defeat today.

Even in penalties, you wouldn't have counted this England team out.


If they win, they head to the final against France. Suddenly, England looked like the exhausted ones.

A photographer covering the World Cup inadvertently became part of a celebration, and the result was incredible. He returned Wednesday to cheer on Croatia with almost 500 of his closest friends.

"We are deservedly in the final", Croatia coach Dalic said. It's a more vibrant team, one with greater self-belief.

England take on Croatia in the World Cup this evening.

You couldn't ask for anything more from the group of players. "They are a top-drawer team with fantastic players".

The Croatians had enough left in the tank to put away England, but France have been the strongest team in the tournament.

And on the field new stars were made.

Kieran Trippier couldn't hold back the tears as he realised England's World Cup dream was over. "It's more than I ever expected, to be honest, so it's pretty good".
