Kieran Trippier In Tears As He Realises World Cup Dream Is Over

Today, England and Croatia will do battle for the right to face the Frenchmen on Sunday in the last game of the tournament.

Desolation and dreams of what might have been littered the path out of Luzhniki Stadium, in Moscow, as supporters trudged towards the metro and into the night.

The encounter in Moscow headed to extra time but Mario Mandzukic's 109th minute strike ended England's hopes of a first World Cup final since 1966.

"Maybe (that was) a effect of being ahead and being the least experienced team in the tournament with the chance to get to a World Cup final", he added.

France's forward Kylian Mbappe runs with the ball during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup semifinal football match between France and Belgium at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in Saint Petersburg on July 10, 2018.

"They haven't been there for 28 years".

Now, finally, there is a team ready to join them in Croatian football's pantheon of heroes. And put in a performance. Three times we have come from behind and that is proof of our character, that we do not give up. "I think it's going to be incredibly loud in any bar we end up going to for the match".

Jason Kay, 49, also from Coventry, simply added: "See you in four years' time".

Some fans have even called for the manager to be knighted after bringing the team so close to glory.

UEFA said Wednesday it is awaiting developments to assess Vrbanovic's role as a member of European soccer's committee overseeing national team competitions.

"They've taken the nation with them". We can tell you the model is leaning Under 2 goals, but its much stronger play is on the money line.

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

"We blew our chances", 17-year-old Josh Ogunde said after watching the 2-1 semi-final defeat with friends near Trafalgar Square in central London as the disappointed crowds streamed home.

"It's been an incredible run and I feel lucky to have been here for this match". This shows character and is what makes me proud.
