Did England attempt to score while Croatia celebrated second goal?

It was hard to believe that Croatia would approach a World Cup semi-final in what was nearly a hangdog way.

Asked if Croatia could beat France in the final on Sunday, his girlfriend Marina said: "Of course".

Having gone into extra time and penalties in their previous two games ahead of Wednesday's semi-final, Modric said there was an assumption that the Croatian team would be exhausted, giving England the advantage.

"Mentally strong team", midfielder Ivan Rakatic said.

Kieran Trippier's goal means that he joins David Beckham to become the only English players to score directly from a free kick in a world cup knock out game.

"We should kill the game even before extra time, and this is an incredible achievement for us".

Towards the end of the half, there were the first signs that England were beginning to drop back and concede midfield to Modric but it was the other side of half-time when his influence really began to grow.

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.

He added: "Let me tell you, whether we win or lose the game, my life will not change", he said.

They served the first game of the ban in a behind-closed-doors clash against Bulgaria back in October 2015.

Mario Mandzukic scored the winning goal in the 109th minute and Croatia shocked England, rallying for 2-1 victory Wednesday. The ball found Mandzukic in stride and he drove a left-footed shot past diving English goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Liverpool's Lovren is set to come up against Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane when Croatia and England meet on Wednesday.

"I feel represented by these players, they have given everything and have given the country a great image, we lacked a bit tonight but Croatia are a great team", says Dale from Nottingham.

"We created some good chances when we were 1-0 up, maybe we dropped a little too deep but we didn't get enough pressure on the ball".

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.

Talk about the potential rule loophole started after Portugal's Jose Fonte strangely chose to stay in the field of play while the rest of his team celebrated Cristiano Ronaldo's equaliser against Spain off the pitch.

"Until they scored [the equaliser] we were always under cosh", Kane said.

"We've come an incredibly long way in a short space of time".
