Steven Gerrard says England will beat Croatia and are a 'dangerous' team

England's forward Harry Kane applauds at the end of their 2018 World Cup quarter-final match against Sweden at the Samara Arena in Samara

But in the end, it wasn't enough.

"We created some good chances being 1-0 up, there are lots of ifs and buts and it is hard in these games, it is small margins and it went their way today".

"Did we feel we would be in this position?" Southgate asked after the game. We can knockout games and we can get to semifinals but the next step is to go one further.

'But when you've got to this point and we've played in the way we have, and as well as we did in the first half, then you want to take those opportunities in life. There had been huge optimism during the day that while France in the final would be a tough proposition, there was little doubt that England would make it.

Mario Mandzukic's goal gave Croatia the lead over England in the second period of extra-time.

First, look at the team.

Cuomo Says He'll Sue Supreme Court if Roe v. Wade Overturned
And, in an interview earlier, he predicted that the potential new justice wouldn't be the deciding vote in overturning Roe v. Casey, which upheld large parts of Roe and ruled that states can not impose an "undue burden" on patients seeking abortion.

England's devastated players could barely drag themselves off the turf as they slumped in front of their fans at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

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.

The Croatian players were quick to tend to Cortez.

"We take it on the chin, we move on".

If you've been following the World Cup, particularly England's performance in it, perhaps you've heard the chant: "It's coming home, it's coming, football's coming home".

Southgate has rebuilt the England team since their abject failure at Euro 2016, when Roy Hodgson's side were humiliated by Iceland in the round of 16. It's a more vibrant team, one with greater self-belief. Southgate has found a formation that works, and his defence is one that can give England a solid platform for the future, but the midfield needs work and new players.

English golfers react to country's semifinal World Cup loss to Croatia
Sadly, it just wasn't meant to be for England at the 2018 World Cup . As more players piled on, they crashed into the photographers.

After watching their team stumble at major tournaments for decades, often falling to much smaller nations, England supporters had begun to think that 2018 might be a different story. The way they've represented their country has been exemplary.

He also said that he would be flying to Russian Federation to watch the final, adding: "I'm just waiting on my visa". As we reflect there will be a lot more positives but tonight it is hard to take.

"I'm excited to see if Croatian fans are as excited as we are".

The team has already grown remarkably in just two years, and that growth seems certain to continue.

George Lee, 59, from Hull, also backed Southgate's young team to get to the final, predicting a 2-1 win. That's what we aim to do in the long term.

"Most of our players were not at the Euros".
