  • Theo Walcott's hat-trick helped England to a 4-1 revenge win in 2008

As the extra period started Croatia struggled to maintain their intense pressure but continued to threaten the England defense.

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'.

Modric said: "We should have killed the game even before extra time". That did not look possible after the first 35 minutes.

"For Croatian football and Croatia as a country, this is history being written".

Meanwhile, the final will be played on Sunday, July 15 between France and Croatia (kick-off at 17:00 SA time).

The socks the players were seen wearing were TRUsox, British-made non-slip performance socks that are also frequently worn by Uruguay's Luis Suarez and Welsh Real Madrid star Gareth Bale. "I will get more attention and it won't be easy to go out for meals if I am in certain places but it won't change my view on the world or the things I attempt to do". "God willing, we will be world champions".

In case you've been living under a rock for the last 12 hours, you'll be aware that England's World Cup dream is over after they were beaten 2-1 by Croatian in extra time.

It all looked peachy for the Poms early, when right-back Kieran Trippier put in a sizzling free kick from close range - his first ever goal at worldwide level.

Kane had a chance to double the lead in the 30th minute when Subasic made a sliding save on his short-range shot and Kane's follow-up effort from the end line hit the post and bounced off the keeper and up as the flag went up.

The best chance for a second England goal was wasted by an unmarked Jesse Lingard when he curled wide when a goal looked certain. But Ivan Perisic equalized in the 68th after getting his foot to ball before England defender Kyle Walker could head it away.

On a similar note, the Atletico Madrid full-back, Šime Vrsaljko, was critical of England's approach to the game.

England initially regrouped well in extra time with Marcus Rashford introducing some pace and Croatia were grateful for Vrsaljko's goalline clearance of a John Stones header.

England's work in Russian Federation isn't yet done as on Saturday they will face Belgium, who were in their group, in the third place play-off.

"This is a miracle".

Despite the disappointment that comes with defeat, the supporters are proud of the team. Tonight we weren't quite there.

"We're gutted. It hurts, it hurts a lot", Kane said after the match at the Luzhniki Stadium.
