Croatia become smallest nation to reach World Cup final since 1950

Croatia become smallest nation to reach World Cup final since 1950”

Then Mandzukic scored, giving Croatia the lead for the first time in the match, and there was no way back for England.

Jubilant Croatian fans honked their vehicle horns and let off fireworks while England fans sobbed and looked to the future with confidence after Mario Mandzukic's extra-time victor took Croatia to its first World Cup final.

He described France as a "top-drawer team with fantastic players", but his own side have earned their place in the final, their victory over England coming after they earlier destroyed Lionel Messi and Argentina with a 3-0 win in the group stage.

No matter what friends, family and fans are still proud following the World Cup heartbreak.England heroes consoled by team mates and family alike.

"England fans in Hyde Park waste about $10,000 in beer on team's first goal against Croatia", suggested one sports reporter while tweeting out the clip.

"I just feel so disappointed".

"We prepared to get to the final and we want to play it".

"A new generation is enjoying the magic of this World Cup run".

Given the age we're living in, it didn't take long for the trolls to begin doling out abuse on social media to the players they unfairly felt let the country down. "I don't think we ever expected them to get that far".

Croatia will be without their right-back Sime Vrsaljko when they face England on their semi-final match of the Russia World Cup 2018 at Luzhniki Stadium.

Southgate had his critics, me being one of them, for his previous tactics and even politics, and some - again me included - thought he was lucky to be where he was. Tonight in the end we weren't quite there but the team will be stronger for that'.

If they had beaten Croatia, England would have reached only their second World Cup final. As the Standard reports, Prince William will be joined by members of the royal family as he is set to watch the game at his official Kensington Palace residence.

He said: "Well, I think I've said this before, but I was not a renowned fashion icon throughout my playing career, so it's rather odd to feel that way now".
