Just some very sad English soccer players on the ground

Just some very sad English soccer players on the ground

On both ends of the field, Sime Vrsaljko got the job done.

Because the goal came so early in the match, it's likely that the beers flung into the skies were a bit more full than fans initially anticipated when they imagined their celebration.

However, the biggest concern looking ahead to Sunday's game is bound to be fatigue, with Croatia having also required extra time and penalties to come through ties against Denmark and hosts Russian Federation in the past two weeks.

Mourinho accepts the defeat will be a bitter pill for England - who led through Kieran Trippier's free-kick before Ivan Perisic equalised - to swallow but believes they can take comfort from their campaign.

"We were the better team in all aspects of the game", said Dalic.

England's loss in 1990 was turned into a documentary film and has become a fabled part of the country's "52 years of pain" since their 1966 World Cup triumph.

"I've got a amusing feeling that the momentum is so good, and, you know, especially now that we're all going to turn up with special Gareth waistcoats, and that can only help can't it", said fan Lee Walkup, 50.

Her performances had thousands of followers on various accounts with her name on them, ranging from 12,000 to 66,000 followers. An Iranian teenager has been arrested for posting videos of herself dancing without a hijab on social media .

"We're one of only three teams ever to get to a World Cup semi-final". I think my wife would throw me out if I spent that much.

One matchup England will look to exploit involves Dejan Lovren, as he will have to go up against Harry Kane, who is now in line to win the Golden Boot at this summer's World Cup. We will want to give a performance of huge pride. What more could we ask for?

As some fans sunk to their knees in disappointment, 24-year-old sports coach Jaihon Sedgley said: "I am absolutely gutted but we go again in two years at the next tournament".

"As I know, when you work overseas, you feel your country in a different way".

Gareth Southgate's emerging side were 45 minutes away from England's most significant game in 52 years as the voices of their supporters rose in an expectant roar inside the vast Luzhniki Stadium. He said: "I'm gutted. Extra time, I knew it was on the cards we weren't going to win that". "They played well and made it difficult for's hard to put your finger of it". But we WILL win a World Cup with this team and Coach!

"To get through three extra-times to get to the final tells you a lot about the team they have".
