Fellow fan Alex Klein, 28, added: "If we win, if we beat Croatia I'll, I'll probably cry, because to see England in a World Cup final is, is like a dream, a lifelong dream".

In Moscow, some England fans emerged from the Luzhniki Stadium in tears and being hugged by others while jubilant Croatian supporters celebrated around them. But when Mario Mandzukic caught Stones sleeping with just over 10 minutes to play, burying a left-footed shot under Pickford, England's World Cup dream was over. "We deserved to be in that final after such an wonderful effort", Croatia midfielder Ivan Rakitic said.

MOSCOW, July 12 ― England's World Cup semi-final defeat to Croatia will hurt for a long time, striker Harry Kane said after their 2-1 extra-time defeat today.

Croatia tops England in extra time to reach World Cup final

"They've been unbelievable the whole tournament but at the end of the day, it was our best chance ever and we haven't taken it", Reece said. "You brought us all together and made us very #proud". But Croatia came alive in the second half, first scoring on a header in the 68th minute by Ivan Perisic to level the match and take the game to extra time. We want players at 100 per cent fit. We've fallen a bit short.

Phillip Schofield praised the team for what they had achieved and for uniting people. They faced Colombia, Sweden and Croatia in the knockout phase, all good teams but none of them a traditional power like Germany or Italy or Brazil, let alone France or Uruguay.
