Kane 'gutted' as England's World Cup dream dies

  • Peter Crouch celebrates after pulling England level

"We're in the final, it's a dream, but we aren't stopping here".

Modric told ITV after the match: "People were talking ..."

However, they have taken a gruelling route to the final and the French will be warm favourites. Croatian midfielder Ivan Perisic rose into the air and with an acrobatic touch off his left foot, drilled the ball into the back of the net.

Kevin Trippier curled in a free kick for England in the fifth minute.

Mario Mandzukic typified their efforts, running himself into the ground in the lone striker role but taking his chance to score the victor clinically when it presented itself almost 20 minutes into extra time.

Before that, England will face Belgium on Saturday to determine who will finish in third place in the tournament.

Thousands of Croatians wearing national red-and-white chequered jerseys poured into the city's streets to mark the team's outstanding achievement which saw them reach the World Cup final for the first time in history.

The referee called Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard back as they tried to go uncontested towards goal.

Fans translating "It's coming home" to Croatian.

Croatia’s Mario Mandzukic celebrates at the end of the World Cup semifinal match against England at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 11, 2018.

Talk about the potential rule loophole started after Portugal's Jose Fonte strangely chose to stay in the field of play while the rest of his team celebrated Cristiano Ronaldo's equaliser against Spain off the pitch.

When asked to explain the reason behind Croatia's comeback, Dalić speaking to Sky Sports said: "Because we were the better team in all segments of the game".

"It's massive that we had a good tournament and restored pride in the nation". Some of these big matches, you just have to go through them and live them to know how to react in the right moments in the right way.

As the England team continues to evolve post-World Cup, hopefully Southgate and Sterling's teammates can devise a strategy whereby he can do more of his work inside the penalty area rather than outside it.

"We've come a long way in an incredibly short space of time", said Southgate, whose young squad reached the last four for the first time since 1990, as well as winning their first ever penalty shootout in the World Cup Finals. Only Uruguay - who lifted the inaugural title in 1930, and again in 1950 - has a smaller population among all World Cup finalists.
