For the second straight game, an English player scored his first worldwide goal in a World Cup knockout match, this time Kieran Trippier sending a sweet free kick into Croatia's net.

"It's been great to get to this stage but we wanted to go on and win it".

She said: "I'm hoping Croatia can reach the final but I'm expecting a really intense game".

When Kane got his best chances in the 30th minute against Croatia, his first shot was saved by goalkeeper Danijel Subasic. We knew they would fight for everything. The ball hit the post, ricocheted off Subasic and somehow looped up to safety.

For Joe, 62, it was his first live England match.

England scored yet another set piece goal on Wednesday to earn an early 1-0 lead over Croatia in the World Cup semifinal. "For us, it was impressive to watch a team such as the English, that is so strong physically, and they couldn't keep up anymore, and we did have that energy".

Paul Sealey, who is visiting the area, said: "The team will do all in their power to win".

England manager Gareth Southgate admits it has been too painful to listen to Three Lions, the David Baddiel and Frank Skinner song which has become the national team's anthem, in two decades, but that success in this World Cup has meant he can finally stand it again.

"@GarethSouthgate and his team have brought the country together and delivered our best World Cup result since 1990". The team needed Kane to use his head in stoppage time to get the victor.

Some French fans were already looking forward to a possible final clash against long-time rivals England, who play Croatia in the second semi-final on Wednesday.

"They're like me - this is the most relaxed we have been, but England is obviously the first choice". "We restored some pride back into the shirt, which was an important thing for us to do".

But he lamented England's failure to take full advantage of what appeared an unusually easy route to the final, avoiding most of the heavyweight teams in Russian Federation.

Now, on their way to St. Petersburg for a third-place playoff against Belgium, there are just so many agonizing misses to replay in their heads.

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

Asked what is was all about, a slightly bemused Southgate said: "That's exactly what I asked our fitness coach a well, 'What is that all about?'".
