Modric, Perisic blast England for undermining Croatia following semi final victory

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

Mandzukic was fastest to react to Perisic's header and shot past Jordan Pickford in the 109th minute to decide the game in the Luzhniki Stadium and send Croatia into their first ever World Cup final.

The Croatia World Cup squad was understandably elated after Mario Mandzukic blasted in a goal deep into extra time, giving Croatia a 2-1 lead over England that put it in position to advance to Sunday's World Cup final.

Fan footage has emerged on social media showing England attempting to kick-off and score while Croatian players were off the field celebrating their second goal.

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

"England's four and a half weeks at the World Cup deserves a little better".

England manager Gareth Southgate believes his squad can head home from the World Cup with pride after their semi-final exit.

While England have generally disappointed their fans in the recent past, there was a sea change in the relationship between Southgate's side and the public. I'm remarkably proud of the group of players - the reaction of the supporters compared to two years ago shows the country are proud of the way we played.

"And like I said, they should be more humble and respect more opponents". "It's just unbelievable to get back in the game in this way". When you have spells, you have to make them count.

Croatia is trolling the England national soccer team after dumping it out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in heartbreaking fashion.

"We were good. We controlled the game, but there's always tension with us, we always concede this early goal and have shocks", Vrsaljko said. Only Uruguay - who lifted the inaugural title in 1930, and again in 1950 - has a smaller population among all World Cup finalists. This is an wonderful achievement for us - it's a dream come true after such a long time.

Looking back to last night's game, Dalic retained his belief that in spite of the "fast and slick and young England side" Croatia faced, his team 'had experience they could not match'.

"The Fiery Ones are in the final, the nation is in a trance - one more step to the title!" said the Jutarnji List, using the team's nickname.

"They'll be the best team we've played in terms of what they're capable of doing with the ball, and what their individuals are capable of, definitely", Southgate said of tonight's opposition.
