This result improves on Croatia's World Cup showing in 1998, when they reached the semifinal stage, but lost to France.

Given they arrived in Russian Federation as rank outsiders, however, Southgate was invited to detail the positives from a campaign that appears to have repaired the strained relationship between England and its team.

Jubilant Croatian fans honked their auto horns and let off fireworks after their national football team beat England 2-1 in extra time Wednesday to clinch a place in the World Cup finals against France.

"We want to be in semi-finals and finals and we've shown to ourselves that that can happen".

England, meanwhile, "blew our chances", said 17-year-old Josh Ogunde after watching the 2-1 semi-final defeat with friends near Trafalgar Square in central London as the disappointed crowds streamed home.

John Bava: It's only fitting that the championship match of what's widely being hailed as the greatest World Cup of all-time features the tournament's two best teams.

"It is a very unusual game because it's a fixture for two teams coming off the back of a disappointment, but the game is there and we need to play it", said the Chelsea man.

Following England's semi-final exit at the World Cup in Russian Federation, former England worldwide striker Alan Shearer has today said that the Third Place match is "utter stupidity".

He will join a long line of famous referees to have ever manned a World Cup final.

England captain Kane told ITV Sport: "It's tough".

Croatia's success in the tournament seems to have boosted interest in the country, proud of its more than 1,000 islands and islets.

While most of his colleagues picked a Brazil v Spain final, McManaman barely put a foot wrong and backed France to beat Croatia in the final.

Here are some of the biggest wins at the TAB from the World Cup to date.
