Croatia has defeated England and will advance to the 2018 FIFA World Cup final against France on Sunday.

But Croatia found energy after the break when the game opened up, making England's missed first-half opportunities seem all-the-more significant. They surrendered the first goal in each of their three knockout-stage matches.

Gareth Southgate's young squad gave their all against Croatia, and they were saluted for their efforts by thousands of England fans in Moscow after the final whistle.

England's 1-0 advantage did not reflect their superiority and Croatia, looking jaded in mind and body after knockout wins on penalties against Denmark and hosts Russian Federation, were off the pace.

It was one of the biggest matches ever for both sides; Croatia had never been to the World Cup final and for England, it had been over 50 years.

"I reckon there's a lot we could've done better".

The aura around England could not be more different to the stale, disunited air that accompanied them away from France two years ago.

A win for England would help erase World Cup futility. "Thank you, England": A simple message of gratitude from the Express, accompanied by a picture of Southgate and his players showing their appreciation to the travelling supporters. "I can only compare it to when the Olympics came to London", Rimet said.

When the final whistle blew and they knew they were going to their first World Cup final, the Croatians ran to their jumping and cheering fans in their iconic red-and-white checkered jerseys. "They are a top-drawer team with fantastic players".

We've entered the final today. "I will get more attention and it won't be easy to go out for meals if I am in certain places but it won't change my view on the world or the things I attempt to do".

England won their opening game at a major tournament for the first time since the 2006 World Cup. Nobody wanted to give in.

During the day England fans were planning the best and least expensive way to get hold of a ticket for the final.
