Entire Croatian cabinet celebrates World Cup semi win by wearing team jerseys

Christian Williams in Southgate Road ready for tonight's semi-final clash

Christian Williams in Southgate Road ready for tonight's semi-final clash

England reached the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990 under Southgate before losing in extra-time to Croatia.

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.

The country of around 4 million people came to a standstill as Croatians watched the game on screens in squares and cafes. "I would play a final without a leg if necessary".

England were within 22 minutes of the World Cup final and, as the captain Harry Kane...

France has been one of the most complete sides in the tournament, topping Belgium in the semifinal round.

I would go back to what I said at the start of this tournament, which was that if this England team can go home with everyone saying that they could not have given anymore, then that would mean they had a good World Cup.

"It is a major blow for Southgate", Robson said.

"This is literally what we're all feeling now", another wrote, while a third added: "The tears in my house where unreal my 8yr old twins are heart broken". The sentiment comes after the Croatian team has had a Cinderella-story tournament, in which they beat many teams they were expected to fall to.

On Thursday morning Walker was in reflective mood.

In their other appearance, in 1966, in London, they entered popular folklore by beating West Germany, an achievement that many fans have long thought they would never see again.

The game ended with England down to 10 players and out of substitutes.

"Modric has had a brilliant season with Real Madrid and here, he's still sprinting about the pitch in the 115th minute", said the coach. "For them to still be singing when we're seeing friends and families, chanting our names and singing the manager's name, is completely different".

That did not change after we were knocked out, either. 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.

"It's not the game we wanted to be in, as a team". So it's hats off to us. For 70 minutes we battered them.

Federation Internationale de Football Association (as quoted by BBC Sport) have confirmed that an investigation is underway, stating: "We can confirm that a report has been filed in relation to chants of a possible discriminatory nature by English fans".
