Liverpool fans will be pleased by Dejan Lovren’s continued form

The Tottenham full-back's free-kick gave England an early lead in their World Cup semi-final against Croatia

We started a bit too casually, and England deserved to score. Mario Mandzukic scored a poacher's goal in the 109th minute, latching onto Perišić's flick to put Croatia ahead and into their first ever World Cup final.

But many of these players have come of age on an global stage.

Russia's ministry of communications said there had been 6,300 new applications for fan IDs, the document that allows visa-free entry to Russian Federation during the World Cup, since England beat Sweden in the quarter-final on Saturday.

Prime Minister Theresa May said: "Wasn't to be this time but it's been a great journey that's made the country proud".

Supporters at Birmingham's Archway outdoor cinema screen broke into applause for Southgate's team within a minute of the final whistle.

England soccer fans react after losing the semifinal match between Croatia and England.

England lost much of their first-half momentum after the break.

"I took Liverpool to the final of the Champions League and now with my national team we are in the final".

Harry Kane was not on his game at the Luzhniki Stadium, Dele Alli failed to make an impact and the centre-halves looked shaky at stages under the pressure from Croatia after the break.

Steven Gerrard says England will beat Croatia and are a 'dangerous' team
He also said that he would be flying to Russian Federation to watch the final, adding: "I'm just waiting on my visa". George Lee, 59, from Hull, also backed Southgate's young team to get to the final, predicting a 2-1 win.

"This acquisition would be a fantastic addition to our holdings and would come at an exciting time for us while we build the London Collection as we plan the New Museum in West Smithfield". We knew they would fight for everything.

Dejan Lovren believes Croatia's incredible feat of reaching the World Cup final is down to good genes. Belgium seems like the safer play, with $100 on the more talented, fresher team netting you $130.

In the end, it was not to be, though amid the disappointment there was also a feeling that the tournament was still something to savour, the first such World Cup for a long time.

"We have the chance to do something better, and hopefully we can do it on Sunday".
