Croatia, in the end, were simply too good and too streetwise in the semifinal and their 2-1 victory was deserved, despite England's impressive start to the game.

England crashed out of the World Cup after a 2-1 defeat to Croatia after extra time.

"Tonight was a wonderful opportunity for us and you can't guarantee that those opportunities will come again", he added.

England don't have a Modric - few teams do - but they have to learn how to control games better against top-class teams. We respected them because we analysed them.

"You've got to look at that squad now and think, you know what, they're going to get a result".

Kieran Trippier, or the "Bury Beckham" as he has been christened on social media, has always had a taste for the big occasion, an ability to elevate his level when the pressure is highest. We closed down (John) Stones and (Jordan) Henderson.

Dalic praised the attitude of his players against England, some of whom endured 120 minutes with "half a leg".

Dalic didn't make Croatia's first change until the 95th minute, when he replaced Ivan Strinic with Josip Pivaric.

"During half-time, I told the players "calmly pass the ball, do not lose your heads".

Elspeth Patient, 34, who is originally from Milton Keynes but now lives in Los Angeles, said: "It's been fantastic, it's been such an incredible time for England".

"I've got a amusing feeling that the momentum is so good, and, you know, especially now that we're all going to turn up with special Gareth waistcoats, and that can only help can't it", said fan Lee Walkup, 50.

"And this is exactly what they did - they enjoyed their football".

England can reach their second-ever World Cup final with a win and would face France.

England may have crashed out of the 2018 World Cup, but there are signs the team could go one or two steps further for the follow-up in 2022.

England supporters celebrate their side's opening goal of the semifinal in South London. Experiences we've come through, that an inexperienced team have to go through to get better. We're taking it step by step.

And Kane said after the match it was hard to put a finger on what had gone wrong for the Three Lions so soon after the heartbreaking loss. We are facing another daunting task but we are ready for it.

"I remember watching 66 on TV as a little lad and going outside playing football afterwards until it was dark", he said.
