Croatia have never reached the World Cup final before and will fancy their chances of beating a talented but inconsistent France side.

But Croatia found energy after the break when the game opened up, making England's missed first-half opportunities seem all-the-more significant.

Although the statistics registered the 58% of the ball possession in favor of Croatia against England's 42%, the first half ended with 1-0 flashing on the scoreboard.

The Croatia defender Domagoj Vida added to the long-standing tensions with a video that was released of him shouting "Glory to Ukraine", after his team had put Russian Federation out on penalties in the quarter-final.

Croatia's strength of character will serve them well in the World Cup final against France, their coach and players said after they came from behind for the third straight knockout match to beat England on Wednesday. When player Kieran Trippier scored an early goal against Croatia in the first quarter, in fact, crowds of England fans erupted in raucous joy.

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.

Southgate leads a group of players whose conduct has won so many admirers here as England made their way to the last four.

But the cold hard truth is that England squandered its chance to reach the final. The players and all of the staff, they have to be proud.

It could also be the final act in the battle for the Golden Boot between Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku.

From Southgate's perspective, though, a third-placed finish will add to the sense of achievement and pride and at least allow England to leave Russian Federation on the high most will agree they have deserved.
