Croatia into the World Cup Final!

Croatia into the World Cup Final!

The Three Lions suffered an extra-time 2-1 defeat at the hands of Croatia in Moscow, after a roller-coaster game which saw England take an early lead through Kieran Trippier, only for a second-half equaliser from Ivan Perisic to take the game to extra time and set up Mario Mandzukic's late victor. "But when we pressed them it turned out that they haven't".

Italy striker Mario Balotelli has hit back at England fans who taunted him before they were eliminated from the World Cup.

But Mandzukic came out on top soon after the break, latching on to Perisic's headed pass and sending a left-footed effort across Pickford to find the bottom-right corner, securing Croatia a return to the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday for the final.

He then added, per The Times" Joseph Cassinelli: "My motto has always been "do your talking on the pitch.' We're in the final and they can now go sunbathing if they wish".

"We worked as hard as we could.it hurts, it hurts a lot and it will hurt for a long time. They have to use this experience for benefit and I know that what´s happened over the last few weeks will make them a stronger team". I think knockout football is about fine margins and when you have good spells against fine sides you need to take your chances.

Croatia had the better of the chances in the remainder of regulation, but England appeared to recover well in the first half of extra time and would have taken the lead in the 98th minute but for Vrsaljko clearing a header by John Stones off the line. Croatia is the first team to win three straight extra-time matches in the World Cup.
