We left everything out there, says England manager Southgate

  • 'Croatia are the best team we have faced yet' – Southgate on England's semi-final opponents

The 2018 vintage will get their chance to avenge that loss but they had been pushed to the limit with all three of their knockout games going into extra-time.

"We're gutted", said Harry Kane, still on course to finish as the tournament's top goalscorer with six strikes in Russian Federation. "For them to still be singing when we're seeing friends and families, chanting our names and singing the manager's name, is completely different".

As the England team continues to evolve post-World Cup, hopefully Southgate and Sterling's teammates can devise a strategy whereby he can do more of his work inside the penalty area rather than outside it.

It was a different game from then on, with Croatia suddenly playing with accuracy and goal 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.

Before a ball had even been kicked at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, expectations surrounding the England national team were low.

As the match progressed, goals from Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic got the Mediterranean nation over the line, and Modric took the opportunity after that match to have his say about the English media.

"I said this tournament would be won by teams with character who execute on the pitch as their coach shows them". Not only did he equalise with a courageous piece of finishing, he took full advantage of Walker's poor headed clearance to flick a header on for Mandzukic to swoop in and send Croatia to the final.

Demonstrators will assemble outside the BBC building in Portland Place at 2pm on Friday and march to Trafalgar Square for a rally. The president backed down over the threats when other leaders agreed to increase defence spending "like they never have before".

Devastated England fans after Croatia scored the winning goal.

"It's been great to get to this stage and we know we've done everyone proud but we wanted to go on and win it". The whole thing is beyond where we thought we might go.

France reached the final for the third time in their history on Tuesday when a second-half header from Samuel Umtiti gave the 1998 champions a 1-0 victory against Belgium in Saint Petersburg.

Though England will return to the country without the World Cup trophy, Kane could bring home an individual award as the tournament's top scorer. We expect the most hard game of this World Cup.

The script that said Croatia was exhausted and England would take advantage, seemed to play out early.

With such a youthful squad taking part in Russian Federation, there is clearly a hope that Wednesday's semi-final defeat won't be the last time that this group of players contest the latter stages of a major tournament.
