Fans in Moscow devastated after England knocked out by Croatia

Mia Šetula, a Croatian student at Bournemouth University, admitted she will be cheering for England's opponents tonight.

"He's captained the team brilliantly throughout this tournament and I can't ask more of him as a captain or as a man over the last three weeks".

Then Mandzukic scored, giving Croatia the lead for the first time in the match, and there was no way back for England.

England scored early in its semifinal matchup against Croatia in the 2018 World Cup.

"A lot of surprises at the World Cup, with Germany, Argentina, they are out of the competition, but also surprised by England, how they play, their style, how they play different to the past", he said.

But England has not been in the final since 1966, when it won its only World Cup title.

"My biggest question before the tournament was about who was going to be the goalkeeper and whether they would be good enough". This shows character and is what makes me proud.

Over the years, other relatively small nations to have punched above their weight by reaching the final include Sweden, Hungary and the Netherlands - all of whom fell at the final hurdle.

Hopefully the crew were able to watch the game without being interrupted.

The England boss was amused at the prospect of fans both in Russian Federation and back at home observing Waistcoat Wednesday in tribute to the man who has guided the nation to within perhaps just 90 minutes of a first final since 1966.

"You've had an incredible #WorldCup, made history, and gave us fans something to believe in".

During the day England fans were planning the best and least expensive way to get hold of a ticket for the final.

"We're looking forward to the future", said Young. "We will go into this final to win it as we have still not gotten over the [2016] final".

As the Croatian side celebrated the monumental goal, they moved towards an area of the sideline that did not have a barrier between the field and the photographers covering the game.

The quality of Zlatko Dalic's side shone through in an ultimately comfortable win over the two-time world champions that saw Ante Rebic, Modric and Ivan Rakitic find the back of the net.
