Sorry guys, but England played only the first half today while Croatia ran and pressed till the end even if this was their third match at extra time.

Praise the Sun, and Mario too.

@adf86 thats just your support talking bro. Croatia have played fairly under the circumstances with maybe Lovren going a touch too far. The ref was fine.


We came unstuck today. Kane should have scored in the 1st half, Stones switched off at the back for the extra time goal (he has that in him as we know). Croatia on the other hand took control, it makes you wonder why Perisic was taken off against Russia before full time hes a class act. Either way well done England, I personally thought we would struggle to get out of the group. Its been a boss adventure.

Well deserved win for Croatia in the end. England could have easily made a 2-0 in the first half, but that didn't work out. Then in the second half they decided to go for defense instead of chasing another goal, and that bit them in the back.

They've got themselves to thank for it. The England team surely could have won this one, but they kind of gave it away.

@YeYa Have a great night, mate, and celebrate! This is something really rare.

@YeYa well done Croatia! Modric is one of the best and Perisic was class. Its not over yet though! The plan for the final should be to load up on the right back Pavard for France as he is massively fallible. Come on Croatia your win will pay for my family tickets to Port Aventura!

@themcnoisy I'm rooting for you and your family then!

I found Vida to be great this game. I wasn't a fan of his before the championship, but he certainly has his charm on the field. He was essential today.

Also, for all you English people on here: unfortunately there can only be two finalists. Have a drink or six to forget all about tonight. I'm sure you'll have another decent shot at the Euro final in a few years.

@Kidfried It will be great. I would have preferred an England win buy hey ho. That is life. I put £20 on Croatia to win after the first group match at 28/1 that was a ridiculous price for a team containing Real best player now, Barcelonas centre midfielder and Inters best player. Especially when some of the other favourites were clearly worse teams.

Its unlike the last semi-final I watched. England played better that night and Chris Waddle broke my heart. That was crushing, tonight we had the chance first half to win and blew it.

@YeYa Congratulations on a first ever World Cup final ! Croatia all the way!
Modric is such a joy to watch. He deserves a WC winners medal.

Sorry for my rant, heat of the moment stuff.

@YeYa Mate if I could see you now I would give you a hearty handshake and all the best for the final.

That was tough to take. In hindsight I wonder if scoring early was such a good thing. We looked like we couldn't decide whether to push for another or to sit on it. And too many players just failed to turn it on tonight, in an attacking sense at least. Defensively I thought we were good.

I'd have taken semi-finals though. The fact that I'm disappointed England didn't get to the World Cup final shows how far we've come in such a short time. Southgate's remit was to turn us into something resembling a decent team. Mission accomplished. 2020 will be here in no time.

@Yeya good luck in the final on Sunday, mate. I still think France will win it, but if you manage it you deserve it because you'll have played about a million minutes of football by that point.

@Fight_Teza_Fight He is a joy indeed. I keep talking about him to people, don't know what it is. He didn't play his greatest match today, but he still just oozes the love for the sport.

@adf86 Don't worry, I like the rants. It's soccer, so it's all about these emotions!

For every England fan, I hope you will succed in your match for bronze. Thank you everyone! Love you all!!

As gutting as it ever is to lose in a semi-final, England were just not quite good enough against the first good team we played, unfortunately.

Making the last 4 hugely flatters us imo so we can't be too upset. The team spirit has been great and it's certainly a lot better than we've produced in any other tournament for a while.

In a way, football has come home. Hopefully give it a good go against Belgium on Saturday now.

@roe yeah. And frankly I'd rather go out like this than drag myself to a pub on a Sunday evening to watch France deliver us our ass on a plate 😂

Hope England / Belgium is a decent game. Theirs unfinished business there. I can't see us beating them though honestly!

@kyleforrester87 Your second game. May the better team win! Good luck everyone, don't be too upset because you have already achieved a lot.

@kyleforrester87 same, honestly I'd back them to hammer us really. Particularly given the way both semis have gone.

@Kidfried I think the occasion got to him (& Croatia) early on, but they were the much better side in the second half. He came alive in the last 30mins.
He's the kind of footballer, that makes you go out and pick up a ball for a kick about. Infectious.

I reckon England will beat Belgium on Saturday.
