English golfers react to country's semifinal World Cup loss to Croatia

Zlatko Dalic

Croatia's dramatic 2-1 extra-time win over England will remain part of Croatian football folklore forever.

"Two years ago, I remember what happened two years ago", Deschamps said, via Reuters.

"A lot of surprises at the World Cup, with Germany, Argentina, they are out of the competition, but also surprised by England, how they play, their style, how they play different to the past", he said.

A Croatian soccer official will be allowed to watch the team's World Cup semifinal match from a VIP section on Wednesday despite being convicted last month in a corruption case linked to the transfer of captain Luka Modric.

"At the moment we all feel the pain of defeat", Southgate said.

"So for them to go back to their country and take a nation like Croatia to the World Cup final is something awesome".

As more players piled on, they crashed into the photographers.

Another stellar display came on Saturday to help Gareth Southgate's side overcome Sweden and reach their first World Cup semi-final for 28 years.

Sadly, it just wasn't meant to be for England at the 2018 World Cup.

Croatia came from behind to win 2-1 in the semi-final clash in Moscow, with Mario Mandzukic claiming the victor in the 109th minute after Ivan Perisic had earlier cancelled out Kieran Trippier's free-kick opener.

"They've been unbelievable the whole tournament but at the end of the day, it was our best chance ever and we haven't taken it", Reece said.

He said: "They were the better team, that's all that happened". "I think he's given everything for the team and there was a period of the game in the second half where we didn't have that controlled possession". That is Cortez under the Croatian pile, and amazingly, it appeared that he was still snapping pictures with one of his cameras.
