"It's going to hurt for a while of course. I think people turn on the national team far too easily, they need to take a lead from the real fans - back the boys whatever, and drop the negativity". "We have had a fantastic journey, further than we thought", he added.

Striker Mario Mandzukic scored 19 minutes into extra-time to complete the Croatian comeback and end England's dream tournament run.

"We've got to keep getting over those hurdles and I know we talked about the success of the younger teams, but this is a much harder, much bigger levels for the players and the belief is building as things are happening. So we won't win the game just because Croatia had half an hour more football than us three days ago, we've got to win because we play better". And that's just us watching.

"For me, I know I'm ready, and I can say the same for my teammates".

England tried their best but could not manage an equaliser as their European rivals now look forward to Sunday's final with France.

Then they were beaten on penalties by West Germany.

Before this game, Jordan Henderson hadn't been on the losing side in any of his last 30 England matches (W23 D7), the longest unbeaten run of any England player in history.

Playing in a 3-5-2 formation, England are the third youngest team in the tournament and head coach Gareth Southgate has done his utmost to lower the expectations. Gareth Southgate is likely to name an unchanged starting line-up from last time out.

"It's the best opportunity that England's ever had, and probably might ever have", England defender Kyle Walker was quoted as saying by the FIFA's official website.

"We experienced the extra time and penalties (against Colombia) and we know the physical and emotional outcome of that", he said.

Croatia did their confidence little good in the 22nd minute when Danijel Subasic's poor kick went straight to Raheem Sterling, who found Harry Kane, but he ultimately shot wide after straying offside.

Croatia's form improved as the half drew on, but after more failed attempts on goal, the teams went into half-time 1-0 to England.

England looked rattled in the immediate aftermath of Perisic's goal, and could have gone behind to another Perisic goal after the experienced midfielder capitalised on a defensive mix-up only to see his shot strike the post.

Croatianeeds to recover from two energy-sapping extra-time games and penalty shoot-outs to defeat England and reach their first World Cup final.

Vrsaljko cleared a John Stones header away from in front of the line, but England had Pickford to thank for a brilliant save as Mandzukic connected with a devilish Perisic cross.

Perisic almost scored a second goal just minutes later, as he latched onto the ball following a defensive lapse before striking the post with his shot.
