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

  • Theo Walcott's hat-trick helped England to a 4-1 revenge win in 2008

Kieran Trippier gave England an early lead only for Ivan Perisic to equalise in the 68th minute and Mario Mandzukic to score the victor in the second period of extra time.

World Cup semi-final opponents England and Croatia's fines over sponsorship protocols are both approximately 10 times the fine that the Russian soccer federation was hit with after its fans were seen unfurling a banner featuring neo-Nazi messaging.

England will play in a World Cup semi-final for the first time since Italia 90, but Southgate insists his life outside of the game will not change if England progress to the final, or even win the tournament.

In Gareth Southgate, England have a manager who has brought new vigor to the national team setup, and who has managed to transform a side who crashed out to minnows Iceland at Euro 2016 into World Cup semifinalists.

"It hurts. I don't know what else to say".

"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". The Croatians and their fans will all be back on Sunday for the final, their first ever.

Germany are 5/1 (6.0) to bounce back from a shock World Cup exit by returning to winnings ways. I don't think realistically we expected to be here, but once you're here and played as well as we did, you want to take those opportunities in life, ' the England boss said.

"All these words from them we take, we were reading, and we were saying 'OK, today we will see who will be exhausted'". England now play with little or no stage fright and the team is free of the inter-club rivalries that plagued the Three Lions in the past.

It was a different game from then on, with Croatia suddenly playing with accuracy and objective as England lost their shape and composure, though Kane missed a chance to win it in stoppage time when he headed wide from a free kick.

"All these words from them we take, we were reading and we were saying 'OK, today we will see who will be exhausted.' As I said, they should be more humble, and respect opponents more".

England can soothe itself with realistic hopes of World Cup success in the near future.

It was a painful defeat for Belgium, foiled at the semifinal for the second time in their history, as the clock ticks on their so-called "golden generation" of players.

But it took just five minutes into the semi-final for Trippier to write his name on the score sheet.
