Mourinho accepts the defeat will be a bitter pill for England - who led through Kieran Trippier's free-kick before Ivan Perisic equalised - to swallow but believes they can take comfort from their campaign.

And, specifically for the crowds back in England, it was a chance to fling all those pints of beer high overhead.

England's bid to reach a first World Cup final since 1966 came to an end as they lost in extra time to Croatia in Moscow. "We haven't said our last word, there is still one more game to go".

Croatia, with a population of just 4.17 million, booked their place in the July 15 final at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium by beating England at the same venue 2-1 after extra time on Wednesday night. England have this young team that they can massively build on.

The Croatia defender Domagoj Vida added to the long-standing tensions with a video that was released of him shouting "Glory to Ukraine", after his team had put Russian Federation out on penalties in the quarter-final.

Over the years, other relatively small nations to have punched above their weight by reaching the final include Sweden, Hungary and the Netherlands - all of whom fell at the final hurdle.

Per CBS Sports, "England enters this semifinal match at +130 World Cup odds on the money line, meaning you'd need to bet $100 on an English victory to win $130".

As the Croatian side celebrated the monumental goal, they moved towards an area of the sideline that did not have a barrier between the field and the photographers covering the game. "So I made a decision to build a pub", Lewis said.

UEFA said Wednesday it is awaiting developments to assess Vrbanovic's role as a member of European soccer's committee overseeing national team competitions. "We picked it up in the first half of extra time, but after that, when they got that last goal, they dominated completely", he said.

While England's top football players were on the pitch, its top golfers were sitting at home watching the game unfold.

If they win, they head to the final against France.
