England fans pack pub

Zlatko Dalic

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. "So I made a decision to build a pub", Lewis said.

In the end, neither Croatia nor England was expected to make it this deep into the tournament, but here they are and France is waiting.

England crashed out of the World Cup Wednesday with a heartbreaking 2-1 semifinal loss against Croatia after grabbing an early lead.

CROATIA is going nuts about their team's appearance in the World Cup semi-finals - but one group of fans had particular reason to celebrate during their penalty shootout win over Russian Federation.

"Whether we win or lose, we're creating history", he said.

"We'll be there and it's a once in a lifetime opportunity seeing them in the World Cup".

Rhys Masters, from Southbourne, said: "This is the best squad we've had since I've been watching England".

Umtiti header sends streetwise France into World Cup final
Zidane was sent off in what was his final match. "I feel an enormous amount of pride", Umtiti told Fox Sports after the match. France will counter with an extremely talented lineup including emerging 19 year-old star Kylian Mbappe leading the way.

Police are calling on the public to enjoy England's World Cup semi-final tonight sensibly after releasing shock footage of drunken behaviour during last weekend.

UEFA said Wednesday it is awaiting developments to assess Vrbanovic's role as a member of European soccer's committee overseeing national team competitions.

Most England fans were gracious in defeat, with one fan saying "Croatia was the better team" on the way out. We've played five hard games and they've taken their toll.

Despite a valiant effort, the team will come home without the Jules Rimet trophy after losing the semi final 2-1 to Croatia.

There were scenes of heartbreak at the various fan parks across the nation, including at Hyde Park, where 30,000 gathered to watch the big game. There will in time be positives to take, it's very hard now to put that into context, it's a bit too soon, really, because I think you have to suffer the result a little bit.

The game will kick off in Saint Petersburg on Saturday, before Croatia play France in the final in Moscow on Sunday.
