Jubilant Croatia fans revel in World Cup semi-final win over England

'Croatia are the best team we have faced yet' – Southgate on England's semi-final opponents Would shutting Kane and England out see Dejan Lovren finally earn everyone's trust?

The Three Lions will visit Croatia on October 12 and Gareth Southgate will no doubt be keen to right the wrongs from their World Cup semi-final clash.

England's first half organization was key in preventing Luka Modric from influencing the game.

The Three Lions were knocked out at the semi-finals stage by Croatia after Mario Mandzukic's extra-time victor.

"The Fiery Ones are in the final, the nation is in a trance - one more step to the title!" said the Jutarnji List, using the team's nickname.

If the start to the match was anything to go by, England were well on their way, with Kieran Trippier lifting a stunning free-kick over the Croatian wall, and then into the back of the net, lifting the spirits of the English in the process.

It stayed level at 90 minutes, meaning Croatia faced extra time for the third successive game, having got past Denmark and Russian Federation on penalties.

With this loss, England has now lost 4 of their last semi-finals in major tournaments.

Mario Mandzukic scored the winning goal in the 109th minute and Croatia shocked England, rallying for 2-1 victory Wednesday.

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

In Moscow, Croatia fans said they were taken aback by their side's win.

"We prepared to get to the final and we want to play it", he said.

Defender Sime Vrsaljko, who was an injury doubt before the game but played the full 120 minutes, was critical of England's style of play.

Vrsaljko cleared a John Stones header off the line midway through the first extra period.

'It's time to hold our heads high as a nation and be proud of each other.

The win sent tens of thousands of French people pouring onto the Champs-Elysees avenue in Paris in scenes of joy last seen when France won the World Cup two decades ago.

"It´s impossible to say anything to make the players feel better at this moment in time", he said.

"After the experiences of the matches with Colombia and Sweden and the whole thing, it's probably beyond where we thought we might be able to go, so tonight in the end, we weren't quite there". This is an incredible achievement for us - it's a dream come true after such a long time.
