0:52                                            England fans in Russia have been reacting to their semi-final defeat to Croatia

Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic made one change from the side which beat Russian Federation on Saturday with Marcelo Brozovic coming in for Andrej Kramaric.Croatia got off to the worst possible start when in just the 5th minute Kieran Trippier curled in a free kick to the top right corner from just outside the box to give England a 1-0 lead.

The national broadcaster, HRT, started its post-match programme with presenters and studio guests jumping around and chanting, while Robert Prosinecki, a member of Croatia's bronze-winning side in 1998, said: "We murdered the English in the second half!".

Jubilant Croatian fans honked their auto horns and let off fireworks after their football team came from behind to beat England 2-1 in extra time on Wednesday to clinch a place in the World Cup final against France.

Croatia's legs at the start seemed to carry the weight of so many minutes in the knockout stage, and a pressing England went up quickly.

In Zagreb, the capital, more than 10,000 people gathered in the central square to watch the match despite rainy weather.

"I can't ask for more from the players".

"The honest thing is it's not a game any team wants to play", Southgate admitted.

Ivan Perisic tied the score in the 68th minute with his fourth goal of the tournament.

"But we handled it well, but unfortunately we conceded at the wrong time, after that I thought we again picked it up again and done well". However, unlike England at the 1990 tournament, it was again third-time lucky thanks to Mario Mandzukic's 109th-minute goal.

"We probably needed that second goal earlier in the game".

"The gaffer had a little word and said we should all be proud of ourselves". Everybody has come. It's the best feeling in a long time'.
