England's Kane misses out on golden shot at World Cup title

Harry Kane of England walks to the penalty spot to take the first penalty of the shoot out during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Round of 16 match between Colombia and England at Spartak

Some affectionately called him "Fantastic Kane", other named him "King Kane" but on Wednesday it might be "Hurricane" that sweeps across Croatia with his pace and power, none of their defender can match. He had a great attitude. What he's achieved has been fantastic.

"It's awesome to meet any heroes from '66 and it gives you so much inspiration, obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament", he said.

"He's a model professional".

"He gets on with his life, lives with his family, gets on with his golf. He's a proper good guy".

An early goal from Kieran Trippier looked to have England on their way to a first World Cup final since 1966, but Ivan Perisic headed home in the second half to force extra time, where Mario Mandzukic scored from an England defensive miscue to send Croatia to their first-ever final.

Belgium were excellent against Brazil but I am anxious that game might have been their performance of this World Cup.

He was rested in the Three Lions' final group game against Belgium but otherwise he has only missed 27 minutes of game time.

"It's tough, we're gutted", Kane said.

"And if I'm Martinez, I'd be thinking "bloody hell, we've won the game but now look where we are". Katie - also referred to as Kate - has been supporting the footballer from back home in the United Kingdom since she is due to give birth to the couple's second child any day. "Maybe we went ahead too early, we needed that next goal to kill off the tie and we had some good chances but never put them away". Anything can happen then.

I just think Les Bleus might step things up here.

I think they will respond here too - and make it to Moscow next Sunday. As we have seen before when they have reached this stage of a major tournament, their success has a wider significance and their football team is seen as a symbol of a united France.
