Croatia beats England to qualify for their first World Cup final

Croatia vs England

The victory sent Croatia into their first-ever World Cup final, where they will meet France on Sunday.

Chants of a "possible discriminatory" nature by England fans during their World Cup semi-final defeat by Croatia, are being investigated by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

"It's tough, we're gutted", he said. "For them to still be singing when we're seeing friends and families, chanting our names and singing the manager's name, is completely different". And I think we need to take full credit for that because we've changed that.

"Of course it´s going to be a really hard task over the next 24 hours to get everyone mentally back to where we want them for a game like that". So it's hats off to us.

The Three Lions were knocked out at the semi-finals stage by Croatia after Mario Mandzukic's extra-time victor.

It was edge of your seat stuff and England were on the back foot. I can't tell you how proud I am to share the dressing room with these players.

The Barcelona midfielder was not impressed with England fans" constant uttering of the words "it's coming home', and he gave them a message after Croatia sealed their progression through to the final.

"But when you´ve got to this point, and we´ve played as well as we have, you want to take those opportunities in life".

England looked at their best and most threatening when Sterling was zipping around up front, yet they struggled to get him involved in the second half as Croatia's all-star midfield belatedly took control of proceedings.

"We gave it everything, I know we're gonna look back and say we could have done this and what but at the end of the day it was small margins in a big game and it didn't go our way today", said striker Kane, now the tournament's top scorer with six goals.

"I'm still not entirely convinced by him and would suggest he is still an accident waiting to happen if the right buttons are pushed and enough pressure is applied".

"The more of these tests we can come through, the better, not just for now, but moving forward".
