  • Fans at the Rose & Crown Wimbledon celebrate England's second goal against Sweden

He arrived shortly before kick-off to a joyous scene of free-flowing beer, oversized inflatable footballs bobbing around the crowd - and the now ubiquitous chorus of "Football's coming home". Another Subasic save, from Fedor Smolov, and a miss from Fernandes during the shoot-out saw the hosts knocked out and Croatia progress to only their second World Cup semi-final.

The dream ended for supporters in Moscow and at home as Gareth Southgate's men lost 2-1 to Croatia in the semi-final after extra time.

He was run ragged by Harry Kane in Liverpool's defeat to Tottenham last October but dealt with the England striker in much more secured fashion last night.

"Did we expect to be in this position?"

He said: "I think it's our year this time".

"So, the dressing room and all of the staff is (in) a very hard place at the moment".

"They've been unbelievable the whole tournament but at the end of the day, it was our best chance ever and we haven't taken it", Reece said. And it was Croatia who emerged victorious with goalkeeper Danijel Subasic saving from Christian Eriksen, Lasse Schone and Nicolai Jorgensen to put his side through to the quarter-finals for the first time in 20 years.


The years of hurt will go on - and for all the optimism raised by England's deeds in Russian Federation over the last month, there will be a burning sense of missed opportunity that will take a long time to erase. I don't think over the six or seven weeks we've been together now that they could have given any more'.

"It's too easy to sometimes move on too quickly".

"I went to Korea and watched David Seaman get the goal over the top of his head, went to France 98, South Africa".

"Tears flowed for our heroes in the east after they gave the best performance in a World Cup for 28 years", The Sun said.

He predicted a 2-0 England win and said he believed the celebrations would be on a larger scale than in 1966 if England go on to win the trophy. 'It's very hard to say anything that will make them feel better in this moment. I'm sure everybody will be looking forward to it. "Only great teams can be as courageous as we were and fight back from a goal down against teams like England", Mandzukic said.

Southgate said playing regularly in big matches was a key stage of development for his players and that the way they dropped away in the second half was perhaps a result of their inexperience.
