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

The meme industry has immortalised some of the best moments from the 2018 FIFA World Cup

"I think that's maybe something for a couple of days' time because at the moment we all feel the pain of the defeat", Southgate said when asked how the loss leaves England.

England should have been two or three goals to the good as they dominated the game for an hour.

A day after France advanced to Sunday's final in Moscow with a 1-0 victory over Belgium, the focus of the tournament is now turning to the other semi-final game, England against Croatia in Moscow.

When Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic visited the team hotel in Moscow on Wednesday that 1998 game was on his mind - even before beating England.

Yuri Cortez is a chief photographer for AFP Mexico and when Croatia scored their semi-final-winning goal in the 109th minute against England, he was in both the wrong place and the right place at the right time.

"But when you've got to this point and you've played in the way we have and played as well as we have in the first half you want to take those opportunities in life".

"It was a very hard game, we all knew what was at stake, how important such a semi-final was for a small nation like Croatia", Perisic said of the win over England.

The 30,000 free tickets were snapped up within minutes in a ballot held Monday afternoon by organisers the British Summer Time (BST) festival.

"It would have been so wonderful to win the cup".

Croatia star shouts home town's massive Cup bar tab
Despite a valiant effort, the team will come home without the Jules Rimet trophy after losing the semi final 2-1 to Croatia . Most England fans were gracious in defeat, with one fan saying " Croatia was the better team" on the way out.

Large crowds gathered to watch the match against England.

The Croatian squad tied the score late into the second half after its striker Ivan Perisic put the ball into the net of the opponents.

"The atmosphere's been absolutely electric", said Michael Grant, 36, a London property developer.

"My father actually played for former Yugoslavia, and I know my brother played for a long time, so yes, it's a bit of a tradition". She made a decision to watch the match in a restaurant that felt like home.

- "Brought everyone together" - For some, England's success in reaching the last four has brought a much-needed sense of unity in a country still wracked by divisions over Brexit. "So it's been great", she said, laughing.

"It's been really nice to see that". "Thank you, England": A simple message of gratitude from the Express, accompanied by a picture of Southgate and his players showing their appreciation to the travelling supporters.

It had left some wondering if this is the new normal.

Hyde Park was a mess as everyone went home.
